Barnes and his staff constantly study trends and technological advancements in the fi****ms industry in order to give students the best training possible. Aside from the TN state handgun permit classes offered, SIFT is not just another $500 for 2 day AR course that everyone seems to offer these days. The facilities at SIFT are very safe, secure, family friendly and professionally run. This allows shooters of all ages to develop at their own pace in a low pressure environment, with instruction tailored to the individual. People learn better this way. Since 1999 SIFT has grown from one to four on-site gun ranges due to increasing popularity and demand. SIFT also hosts monthly IDPA and multiple women’s shooting groups.
