Our Facility

S.W.A.T. offers a nice facility in our Crossville, TN location. The classroom has a overhead projection system, custom audio and heat and cool controlled climate. We also offer a break room that is very comfortable and offers a snack, drink or cup of coffee during the breaks taken at a class. Our shooting portion of any class given at our SWAT Crossville location will be held at our new indoor range right beside the classroom so there is no running around and burning gas to get to a uncomfortable outdoor facility. Take one of our many classes and you'll see what sets SWAT apart from the rest! We want the student to be comfortable, relaxed and ready to learn and we incorporate all the facility needed to accomplish that goal!


Tony May is an excellent instructor with a great sense of humor and patience. The class was taught with professionalism. I walked out of the class with knowledge about firearms that I will never forget, especially about how to use them safely. I would highly recommend this class to anyone!

I feel so much better able to handle my gun competently and safely. Tony made learning throughout informative and entertaining. Lots of examples of what can go wrong and the tragedy of not following the safety rules. It is a great responsibility to have a gun and to know when and when not to use it. It had been a long time since I used a gun and yet Tony did not embarrass me, just helped me patiently. I feel much more confident to act responsibly in defending myself. I would recommend this class and this facility to anyone interested in learning to protect yourself and others .Thanks to Dave's pawn shop, Tony and Joe.

I took the class yesterday and it opened up my eyes to a lot of considerations before taking action with my personal weapon if I ever need to. Tony stressed safety every chance he got and is a very competent instructor. My objectives were met at the end of the instruction and I was pleased to take the course. Great job on instruction and running of the range.

I had the pleasure of taking Tony May's firearm's safety class. He is very professional in every aspect of making sure that everyone knows what to do in different situations concerning firearm's. He goes over in detail to make sure everyone understands his instructions. If you have any doubts about signing up for his class, then don't be. He accommodates handicap people as to not embarrass them, and he makes you feel comfortable, if you are unsure of yourself. He will do everything he can to make sure you succeed. Joe, his assistant will also do the same. I would recommend his class to anyone. he was outstanding in his presentation and also his finish of the class. Thank you both Tony and Joe.
