MDFTA is a planned world-class, five-star indoor Firearms Training Center with state-of-the-art shooting ranges and an upscale full service retail store in Beltsville, Maryland. Our philosophy: For all skill levels, we want to offer the opportunity for you to improve your skills and have fun in a safe environment. Our facility and training programs are designed to offer a well-defined progression, like the path to a college degree. As you progress through the courses and demonstrate proficiency, you will earn access to shooting scenarios suited to your skill level. We will use firearms simulators to validate skills before moving into live fire exercises.
The facility will feature modern targetry systems and training equipment built to tactical standards, but available for all skill levels of consumer and professional shooters. A wide range of affordable memberships are available for both consumer and commercial use. The facility will also feature a limited number of executive club memberships which include access to a member’s only country club style lounge and separate shooting facilities.
