Mission Statement

“Some situations you may be faced with in life
are not black and white.
Falling somewhere in between,

Our mission is to prepare you for those occasions.
in the ‘Gray’ areas.”

“Gray Ops FireArms Specialty Training 1*” (Gray Ops) is defining new teaching standards, which reflect a high caliber of expertise, organization, and professionalism.

We at Gray Ops work extremely hard to bring you the most up to date and real life firearms training available in the present day to improve your skills. “We do not rise to the level of our expectations. We fall to the level of our training.”

Gray Ops was founded out of a strong desire to provide practical firearms training as it relates to our current real world situations and environments.  Our courses are not administrative in nature; they are specifically designed to place individuals and teams under the type of duress that closely simulates the stress of real-world confrontations.

Gray Ops training team is required to maintain a “show you” capability; not anything required of the students will fall outside of the following sequence: Tell You – Show You – Allow You – Evaluate Performance – Repeat –

Our courses have been designed for the beginner, intermediate, advanced shooter, not those wishing to simply check the box for another certificate.

Our courses are designed to impart a genuine capability to those who apply the concepts, tactics and training methodologies for themselves and others they work with.

Those attending training should arrive mentally prepared to receive new concepts. They should be prepared to give them a fair evaluation and demonstrate a strong spirit to apply them during the practical training blocks.

Gray Ops team members serve as instructors, mentors, and will always strive to maintain a positive outlook.
