So what does it all entail...


This is your chance to experience the handling of firearms with a hands-on training course to increase your skills while having fun doing so. Learn how to hold and load multiple Handguns, Rifles & Shotguns while moving like a professional feeling confident that when that on-screen opportunity comes, you will be competent and safe to perform like a pro.


The Introduction to Handgun & Tactical Rifle Training for Film & TV course will cover the basics as follows:


  1. An introduction to firearms within the Film & TV Industry outlining the safe use of firearms in film & TV productions recommended by the HSE (Health & Safety Executive)
  2. Using firearms in your own productions and what is required to be safe and legal
  3. The five fundamental safety rules when handling firearms and how they benefit you as an actor in the industry and keep you safe around firearms
  4. Familiarisation with the different types of Handguns & Rifles available on-screen past and present along with how they work
  5. The marksmanship principles that are required to shoot Handguns & Rifles along with the relevant static firing positions used in film & TV
  6. Tactical movement as an individual and a tactical team
  7. Pistol Holster draws
  8. Rifle-to-Pistol Transitions
  9. Shooting firearms onset during film
  10. Live Fire Target Shooting on the shooting range
  11. Competency and safety testing for NFA certification


DAY ONE will be the "Handgun for Film & TV course" where we will cover everything you need to know when dealing with handguns on screen and experience firing a Glock 17 or Beretta M9 pistol, the blank firing of course along with a Colt Peacemaker Blank firing Revolver as you see on Westerns or period dramas.


DAY TWO will be the “Tactical Rifle for Film & TV course” where we will cover tactical rifles like the M4/AR15, AK47 and the G36 used by British Firearm Police. We will step it up with more tactics to give you the ability to act as naturally as possible while manipulating firearms in front of the camera.


We have now incorporated live firing Pump-Action Shotguns so you can truly experience recoils while incorporating the skills you will learn to accurately shoot at our blow-up targets to finish the course with a bang. Over the two days, you will cover the 10 areas explained above.


There will be a lot of hands-on practicals on both days, but no rolling about or playing soldiers, so no matter what your age or ability, you will be able to join in on the action. We perform assessments of competence as the course progresses to make sure you are at the correct standard of weapon handling and safety.


All this over two comprehensive days for only £349, and you can pay securely right here. We limit spaces to just 8 per course for optimal individual attention, so please book early to avoid disappointment.



Day 1 -  09:30 to 15:00/16:00 

Day 2 -  09:00 to 15:00/16:00
