About Us

Our Mission

  • We are dedicated to absolute professionalism and responsibility in the civilian, law enforcement and military communities. From new shooters to seasoned Soldiers and Officers, we teach passionate people to be safer, more competent and more confident shooters. We accomplish this with tailored, doctrine-based instruction delivered by passionate firearms professionals.

Current Operations

  • We currently offer various programs of instruction at local venues. We normally execute Pistol courses at Whistling Pines Gun Club (East). We can travel to other hosting ranges in Colorado Springs and beyond with prior coordination. Most courses are conducted on Saturdays and/or Sundays. Individual instruction is available on weekday evenings as requested. OSS is fully insured for live fire instruction and training through the NRA.

The Magic

Whether teaching a concealed carry class for women or room entry techniques for SWAT teams, our performance-based approach will ensure the client has maximized his/her individual potential by doing the absolute best with what they have. Our training is doctrine based and inspires confidence reinforcing our client’s trust that OSS is the right choice to learn critical skills.
