March Deals and Events at Bristlecone Shooting, Training & Retail Center in Lakewood, CO

It’s March Madness at Bristlecone this month!  Check out our slam dunk deals….



Intro to Pistol Deal

March 1st through March 15th ONLY, all Intro to Pistol classes in March are $99 (typically $125)!  Register in store or online here to get the deal. This class was designed for students that are new to firearms altogether, or who may be returning after a long break in their training cycle.  You’ll spend time in our classroom learning about the basics – nomenclature, pistol types, ammunition, proper grip, stance and sight alignment.  Then, you’ll move into the range to practice some basic drills that you can use beyond this class to improve your skills.  No other discounts or promotions apply.

International Women’s Day is 3/8!

We’re celebrating with several Women’s Only classes that day.  Check out our calendar for more details and see where you can take advantage of the Intro to Pistol deal early this month to register!


New and Limited Edition Classes

NEW!  Home Defense Series

This series of classes starts with an introductory session where you will be able to discuss and try the three platforms typically used for home defense: pistol, shotgun and rifle.  You’ll leave with a better understanding of what goes into a comprehensive home defense plan, and which platform would be best for your personal situation.  Then you’ll be able to follow up with a session specific to the platform you’ve chosen.  Check out these new classes on our calendar:

Introduction to Home Defense (Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun)

Intermediate Home Defense Pistol

Intermediate Home Defense Shotgun

Intermediate Home Defense Rifle

Coffee & Carbines is back!

These quick, lower cost, downrange training sessions are focused on drills designed to increase your comfort level with movement, transitions, and non-traditional shooting positions with your carbine.  Students must have taken Intro to AR, and Tactical Rifle Level 2 at Bristlecone, or must speak directly with instructors Travis Gilliland or Trevor Robinson before registering.  More information here

Couples ReACT Training sessions are back – rebranded as Partners in Protection

Our Valentine’s Day special for couples to train together in our Shoot House was so popular, we put it back on our regular training calendar.  Look for “Partners in Protection ReACT (Realistic Armed Combat Training) here.  We renamed it because, ya’ know, it’s not Valentine’s Day anymore but this is still a great type of training for partners to do together.  You’ll run through multiple scenarios during your session, learning how to communicate and work together under pressure and with adrenaline as a factor.  Protective gear, simunition firearms and ammunition included.
