Strategic Armor is a Premier Firearms Training and Security Company located in Fuquay Varina, North Carolina.

Welcome to Strategic Armor

Strategic Armor specializes in various firearms training from Private Lessons, Introductory Basic Pistol Course, Women's Only Courses, and the North Carolina Concealed Carry Handgun Course, as well as focusing on your security needs from site assessments to emergency response. Our firearm courses are designed to help you feel comfortable and confident when carrying and operating a handgun while also ensuring that you have a legal understanding of the process. We conduct these courses at Drake Landing in Fuquay Varina, a safe and professional range. Our team aims to provide top-notch customer service that is both timely and efficient.

When signing up for one of our firearm classes, are they concerned about cold weather? Don't be. The classes are held in a climate-controlled classroom, and during inclement weather, the firearm training portion will be held in a covered range.

Why do we use outdoor ranges? Indoor ranges can be noisy, crowded, and intimidating for those using a firearm for the first time. Our private outdoor range allows you to learn with a small group of classmates and receive our instructors' personal attention.
