Welcome to Pistol Masters

NRA Certified Instruction in the Safe Storage, Handling and Use of Handguns, and Period-Contract Protective Services.

About Us

Pistol Masters is the Colorado Front Range's premier group of NRA certified instructors in the safe storage, handling and use of revolvers and semi-automatic handguns.  Even though the subject is serious, we are first and foremost "educators of a specific skill-set and knowledge area" and strive to make the classes fun and enjoyable, with maximum "hands-on" practice.  We won't yell at you!  "This ain't boot camp."      


Our instructors can tailor a program to fit your schedule, group size, and particular requirements.  We take pride in our ability to meet the requirements of those who may need discreet and/or private instruction.  We can teach the classroom portions of our courses in your home or office or place of business.  The range session can be conducted at a discreet, out-of-the-public-view range location if required.   



Anybody Can Learn How to Safely Handle a Handgun!

Our past students and clients range from Corporate CEOs and Presidents to "everyday Moms and Dads" to wheelchair-bound individuals to seniors.  We specialize in teaching youth (ages 12 and older), ladies, seniors and the disabled, as well as teaching personal protection in the home, place of business, or other building or structure.         


Our courses will help you to:   

• personally learn how to store, handle, and use handguns    

• ensure that your family members know how to safely handle and use handguns    

• acquire your permit to carry a concealed handgun (our courses meet the training requirements to apply for your Concealed Carry Permit)        


We also perform duties as Protective Services consultants and operatives on a case-by-case basis.

You Can Contact Us Anytime!

If you call us at 720.985.3445, our Chief Instructor R.D. (Rich) VanOrsdale will be more than happy to talk with you about your handgun training or protective services requirements.  


Even if you just want advice on the type, make, model and caliber of handgun you may be considering to purchase, give him a call.    


You can also directly e-mail him your questions at:  rdvanorsdale@pistol-masters.com   


We look forward to hearing from you!
