Welcome to Artemis Defense Institute.

Anyone Can Teach You to Shoot, but at Artemis, We Make Thinkers Before Shooters.

Artemis Defense Institute (ADI) is Orange County & Los Angeles County’s Premiere CCW Training Facility and a unique firearm training facility, blending live-fire training with state-of-the-art indoor video simulations. In the training lab, we offer a comprehensive, expert-driven defensive shooting curriculum fueled by highly qualified staff from law enforcement, military, and civilian backgrounds.


As the most realistic concealed carry firearms training in Orange & Los Angeles Counties, ADI was the first to bring video simulation training (formerly available only to military and law enforcement) to the civilian market in 2012.  Using this 100% safe, state-of-the-art training platform fueled by real Glocks equipped with CO2 and lasers lets you learn new skills and practice without fear.


Our curriculum goes far beyond mastering shooting fundamentals – we help you train your brain to react effectively in the face of a threat. This includes drilling tactical skills far into your muscle memory as well as honing your situational awareness skills, all the while educating you about current firearms law. Whether you are a beginner or advanced shooter, ADI will help you become and remain able to defend yourself and your loved ones responsibly.

New to firearms or considering buying your first one?

Glock break down for learning at Artemis

You are not alone! The number of new gun owners is staggering. California firearms laws are convoluted and confusing. Knowing how to navigate the regulatory process is the first step in firearms ownership.

 

Also, know that there are no firearm “accidents” – there is only firearm negligence. It is imperative to know, understand, and internalize the four firearm safety rules through frequent, consistent, and constant training. To get started, watch our New Gun Owners Video Series made just for you.

 

 

For anyone looking for legal advice regarding gun-ownership and other general questions, we hold a weekly Office Hours with the Co-Owner & Use-Of-Force Attorney Steven Lieberman that is completely free of charge.
