Sniper Central is proud to announce that we have acquired a controlling interest in Northwest Defense (NWD), a premier training group located in Northwest Montana. By bringing the NWD team into the Sniper Central family, it will allow us to expand our training capability and teach the art and science of long range shooting to even more individuals who share in our passion. During the evaluation period of this acquisition we took the time to observe firsthand the NWD training staff in action and were impressed with their professionalism, attention to student needs, and their love and passion for teaching. After meeting with the team and discussing their views on instructing it became apparent that they fell directly in line with our core values and beliefs about teaching.

As Sniper Central continues to grow and expand, we have determined that we could not do everything alone and by finding another group of individuals that was so closely aligned with how we teach and train, we could not pass up the opportunity to join forces and strengthen both companies.

Northwest Defense is now a part of Sniper Central and will be the training division and will teach our curriculum to our normal excellent standards and of course all instructors will be required to be just as knowledgeable, professional, experienced, approachable, friendly, and dedicated as the Sniper Central staff has always been. To see the background and experience level of these instructors, feel free to look at their biographies here.

Bringing Northwest Defense into the fold allows us to offer more classes per year and also new and different classes as well, not only in long range precision marksmanship, but carbine, pistol, designated marksman, field craft, survival, and many others. We will also be able to continue to grow the Sniper Central business by opening our physical HQ facility this fall, perform more reviews and comparison articles, offer more unique and specialized solutions and many other exiting things to come.

So feel free to follow along over the next few months as we begin to incorporate Northwest Defense into Sniper Central and continue to do our best to be your independent and complete source of all things sniping!
