Everyone who considers owning a firearm for personal or home defense has legitimate concerns about the risks associated with keeping a weapon in their home. Where do you go to get information about the products that will best meet your specific needs and help you sift through all of the associated costs? In tough times, money and resources can be tight and owning a firearm can be a very costly endeavor if you don't have a plan. 

FSGE was born after 2 pilots were furloughed due to Covid 19. During the lockdown lines formed at stores for guns and toilet paper.  People have been panic buying whatever is left on the shelves. Something is wrong.  FSGE aims to simplify the process for handgun owners to get the education and training that they need. We believe that confidence comes with experience and education. We want to encourage safe training practices, proper education, and the use of quality gear.  


FSGE believes that most people are responsible individuals. We want to encourage individuals to get the best training and education possible while providing them access to the essential gear that will help them achieve their self defense goals. We believe that being able to defend yourself is empowering and brings added peace of mind. Through education and experience you'll gain the confidence you need to be a safe and responsible gun owner.


Firearm ownership is a personal choice but often becomes a political divisive issue. There is nothing political about the desire to be prepared to protect yourself and your loved ones in the manner that you believe is best for you. Please let us know how we can help you as you consider the best way to get training that you need.

“I am a new handgun owner. I just bought the Sig P365. Aside from buying the gun, I didn't know what else to get and where to get started. FSGE helped me feel more confident. Great gear!”
