O U R M I S S I O N:
The Firearms Training Academy seeks to provide quality firearms training instruction to those wishing to safely use them to protect themselves and their families.
The Firearms Training Academy was established in 2010 by long-time Tyler, Texas resident and DPS Certified Concealed Handgun Instructor, Paul W. Johnson. Johnson observed a great need for East Texans to have a comfortable, respectful place not only to obtain their CHLs, but to also acquire quality Firearms and Personal Defense Training. FTA has sought out expert instructors with years of real-world experience offering you the most thorough training in firearms and personal defense techniques.
The Texas firearms culture is growing faster than any other state. FTA not only encourages Texas residents wishing to exercise their right to carry a concealed handgun for personal protection, but also believes it is REQUIRED that CHL holders and owners of firearms acquire the very important and necessary skills and knowledge required to handle their firearm in the most responsible and effective ways.
