Silva Group Consulting

Firearms Education, Training, and Services

We believe that self-defense is a God-given natural right, inalienable, and absolute.  We believe in the principles of the Declaration of Independence, limited government as expressed by our Constitution, and an armed society of free citizens as expressed in our Bill of Rights.  

There is a difference between shooting a gun and using a gun responsibly to defend yourself and others. Under stress, the body experiences many things that reduce our ability to function effectively by 70% or more. The results can be devastating. The only option is to become educated and train, train, train !!!

Life, family, and financial well being are all invaluable. Consequently we focus our courses on safety, threat assessment, principals of avoidance, escape and defense.
