Official NRA firearm training classes are NEVER conducted at gun shows. All official NRA firearm training classes exceed the State of Florida’s training requirement of concealed carry license application.
Those who conduct gun show concealed carry classes do not like us telling you this, but they cannot dispute it. They want you to believe that just because they are a NRA certified instructor they are conducting an official NRA firearm training class. Nothing could be further from the truth!
After taking a gun show concealed carry weapons class and you are left asking yourself: “Is this all there is?”, bring a copy of your training certificate to us for OFFICIAL NRA firearms training for only $30. (Regular class cost: $65)
Certificates must be dated between January 1, 2017 and June 1, 2018.
You can save money by just taking our OFFICIAL NRA firearms training and not wasting your valuable time in a minimum required training, “git-r-done-quick” gun show class. In our concealed carry class, you will fire a minimum of 50 rounds of defensive caliber ammunition on a live-fire range.

It happened Saturday, July 28th in the courtyard of the Florida Capital.
While patriotic Americans, who support the defense of the 2nd Amendment, gathered in the courtyard of the State Capital, an opposing group, March for Our Lives gathered only blocks away. Numbers for the two groups were similar. However there was on striking difference between the two groups.
One group gathered to show support for the 2nd Amendment and every American’s right to self-defense and the other group gathered to gain support for their effort in restricting Floridians’ rights to own the firearm of his or her choice and self-defense. One group wants to preserve every American’s Constitutional rights and the other group wants to have those rights eliminated.
One group was entertained by live music, singers and dynamic speakers. Opening ceremonies included the Pledge of Allegiance the live singing of the National Anthem, by Krystal Walters . The other group marched in the street, after a closed-door, round-table conference, led in chants by organizers using megaphones. At their rally site, attendees were entertained by angry speakers shouting political, anti-Constitution rhetoric and anti-gun talking points.
Which group was which, view the photos below and draw your own conclusion.
By far the most powerful and motivating speaker at the rally – Mark Robinson . . . .

The name “Guardian Training Program” as it pertains to security, self-defense or firearms training in POLK COUNTY was first coined by In-Gauge of Polk County.
For the record, the term/name “Guardian Training Program” (in Polk County, Florida) was coined by In-Gauge of Polk County, Inc. in December of 2017.
Prior to Polk County Sheriff’s Office’s recent use of the name “Guardian Program” the name was the “Sentinel Program“. During the 2018 Legislative Session and when Senate Bill 7026, the Marjorie Stoneman Douglass High School Public Safety Act, was signed into law by Governor Scott, on March 9, 2018, it was termed the “school marshal” program.
In an effort to avoid confusion and to set the record straight, In-Gauge of Polk County announced its “Guardian Training” in December of 2017. See the links below.
By no stretch of the imagination is this announcement intended to demean the Polk County Sheriff’s Office or the Polk County School Board.
Rather, it is the intent of this publication to clarify that the “Guardian Program” offered by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and the “Guardian Training” provided by In-Gauge of Polk County are two entirely separate and distinct training programs that have in no way any relationship to one another.
