Abdul Gaibi


Abdul Gaibi – Founder, CEO and Executive Director.  I have been involved in the shooting sports since 1992 when I took my first lesson. That was over twenty years ago. After being involved in the shooting sports for nearly 15 years, I decided to start our company in 2009 and have grown it to where we are today.  We are New York’s Largest Firearms Training Academy having trained over 15,000 students. I have always believed that in order to responsibly own a firearm continued training is reuqired.  I have always been of the mindset that our greatest asset is our students so the relationships we have fostered have made us who we are today.
