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 the best choice. The instructors are both professional and knowledgeable. They spend the time to make sure that you understand both how an why to do each technique. 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
