Our Mission

The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America. In The first ten amendments, known collectively as the Bill of Rights, we are offered specific protections of individual liberty and justice.
The Second Amendment (1791) protects the right of individuals to keep and bear arms. The Supreme Court has ruled that this right applies to individuals, not merely to collective militias.

“The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”

Whether for Sport, Pure Curiosity or for the simple Knowledge for Personal protection, we here in the United States of America should Honor this Tradition and uniquely gifted Right.
Our Mission at Seek-Safety is to provide a Friendly, Safe environment that forms a foundation for Enlightened Learning. It is our constant Goal to provide exceptional teaching experiences by first listening to and understanding our student’s needs, and meeting their personal objectives by formulating customized courses, reinforcing a positive experience.
As Immigrants and Law abiding citizens ourselves, we at Seek-Safety feel fortunate to have this opportunity to exercise our right to own Firearms as well as act as a reputable resource of Knowledge and experience to our communities.

"My knowledge of guns was ZERO and I was scared of guns. After taking a lesson with Seek Safety, I had learned basic gun safety rules, different types of pistols, mechanisms of pistols, and how to handle them. The instructor, Mr. Holger Grygiel, is the best teacher I have ever had. His ability to impart firearms knowledge and skill to someone with no experience is a true testament to his mastery! He gave me courage, strength, and confidence."
