Describe Your Business
Apache Solutions is structured a lot like a gym with a private trainer. Students take one hour blocks of instruction (Weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly) to learn new skill sets and polish others. Then they are given homework to improve at their home or at a traditional range. With a dynamic range space, effective classroom, and one-stop pro shop, our training facility is designed to outfit the students with the training and gear needed to be considered a responsibly armed citizen.
What Made You Decide to Open Your Business?
I discovered a significant hole in the community in regards to professional firearms instruction. The best that I could find was someone certified by the NRA and the NCDOJ and all they were teaching were concealed carry classes to the masses. There was nothing specifically designed to teach armed self-defense. Nothing with actual data driven and street proven results. That is why we started Apache.
Why Did You Choose This Profession?
Personally, I struggled with my transition from military life to civilian life. I couldn’t seem to find my place… so, I just created it! .
What drives you to do what you do? What motivates you?
The eager student. Be it a single mother running from a crazed ex-husband that needs professional assistance with self-defense. Or the person that just wants to hold themselves to a higher standard than the basic concealed carry class..
What was it like when you first started?
Our business was met with lots of support and positivity.
Would you recommend this profession for a young person?
Yes. but, age does not directly imply experience. Learning is a lifelong process and to be an effective teacher, you must be able to humble yourself.
What would your customers say they love most about your business?
It’s therapeutic. People love the fact that they can learn and grow in privacy. Much like “Woodshedding” to a musician.
How long have you lived in the Triad area?
I have lived in the area since 2014.
What is the best way for customers to contact you?
Phone calls or text messages
