Gulf Coast’s Premier Firearms Training Academy
Gulf Firearms Instruction LLC in Stapleton, AL is the only full-time academy in the area. We have been teaching responsible citizens and helping law enforcement personnel for more than 31 years. The classes we offer are varied, from basic to advanced firearm and self-defense training.
On April 19, 2020, I had the opportunity to take the Enhanced Basic Handgun course. Scott and his crew were outstanding.
Scott ability to communicate his thoughts and commands both verbally and in writing, is excellent. Scott is an exceptional orator, and his staff work very well as a team to provide user friendly service to the students. Scott and his team are methodical and extremely conscientious, their actions are well planned and tailored to each student and too, are in the best interest of the student success. I recommend that anyone who requires the basic handgun knowledge will be missing out if an individual does not utilized Scott and his team to become handgun familiar.

I highly recommend the courses offered by Scott. I’ve taken the basic handgun and defensive concealed handgun classes. He goes way beyond what you would expect for the fee charged. You get plenty of personal attention and a lot of feedback, pointers and correction to take you to the next level. I’m looking forward to my next class.

My wife and I completed Scott's Enhanced Basic Handgun class on Jan. 13, 2018. I'd read all the positive reviews about Gulf Firearms before attending and my expectations were high. Scott blew those expectations out of the water with his professionalism, kindness, knowledge, experience and a passionate approach to instruction. I admire people who make their craft look easy and Scott does just that. He is organized and efficient with both classroom instruction and range time. My wife was a complete novice and I only had a small amount of experience with handguns but very familiar with long guns. We had 9 students that day with some novices, some like me and some very experienced in firearms. Scott's approach keeps it interesting during a long day and keeps everyone involved, often calling on individuals to answer questions. He has tons of example pieces so you get to see and touch different firearms components and accessories and an impressive collection of .22 revolvers/semi auto, .38/.357 revolvers and 9mm semi auto. We took the class because we want to each purchase a handgun. I had an idea of what would work for me and left the class 100% certain of what I will buy. And I will buy it from Three Brothers Arms as will my wife. So go ahead and enroll in one of the class offerings, you get more than your money's worth. Thanks Scott!
