What our students are saying

“I researched several training locations in the Midland/Odessa area before choosing Guardian Training Agency and I believe I made an excellent choice. The instructors are both professional and knowledgeable. They spend the time to ensure that you understand both how to do each technique and why it is applicable. I believe Guardian Training Agency is the best firearms training organization in the area and if you show up with a positive attitude and an open mind they will give you the tools to be an exceptional shooter.” – Ben
