About Threefold Defensive Training

We don’t want to be just another training option to receive basic firearms safety, or Concealed Carry Permit training in CO. We want to be the only option you think of in the Front Range. 

Threefold Defensive Training in Aurora, Colorado was created in 2013 to not only to remove the fear and misgivings some have for these tools, but to teach you the knowledge, skills, and attitude to own and possibly carry a firearm. 

The principles of our business will remain steadfast through the years; quality training and instruction at a reasonable price. We are here to pass on the knowledge and skills you will need to protect  yourself and your loved ones if the need ever arises. And we are going  to do it in an affordable, safe, fun environment. 

We schedule our classes based on your needs. Whether it be one on one, or group, we can meet your training time frame with classes and trained  instructors to provide the best customer service in the business.  Located just east of Denver, Colorado 3FDT wants to be your training  partner. Contact us today to discuss your current and future training needs.


While we primarily use the classroom at Shoot Indoors Buckley in Aurora, we use two live fire ranges. Obviously Shoot Indoors Buckley, as well as a private outdoor range, Lead Valley Range, near Deer Trail is East of the Denver Metro area of Colorado about 35-45 minutes from the 470/70 interchange. 

Additionally,  our classes can be brought to you and your facilities. We have been working hard on adding additional classes; not just dates and times, but additional training that will help you to become a more vigilant, responsible citizen.

Why 3fdt

Why Choose Us

We can remove the fear and myths about firearms perpetuated by the media with quality instruction and the facts related to firearms usage. Your peace of mind is why we teach. We want to demonstrate that the firearm is only a tool, and if used properly can create balance between good, and evil. We can get you on your way to obtaining your CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon) permit. Some firearms classes do not allow you to work with actual firearms. We do. Some classes are taught by well meaning instructors who just read the laws related to a concealed Carry Permit.

We believe that in order to responsibly carry a firearm, you have to obtain complete training. And when you apply for your Carry Permit our class is recognized by every county in Colorado. We can pass on to you knowledge, skills, and attitude that you can only get from quality training. We will show you the tactics to reduce the threat you may face. And we can do it without creating an environment of aggression or fear.

I recently finished the NRA Pistol Instructor course with Robert. Robert has a created a very light and enthusiastic way of teaching this course. Sometimes it can be very dry material, and for that reason Robert keeps the class fun, although sometimes we can get off topic and the class may take longer than expected. Other than that I'm very glad to have taken the course through Robert. Highly recommend!
