Austin Davis's Virtual Training Academy is a state of the art Shoot House located in Houston, Texas.
Real life experience is a lousy teacher because experience gives the test first and the lesson second. Virtual experience is invaluable and you can try different strategies and make mistakes without any lasting negative consequence. Get the test, learn the lesson, and become much the wiser for knowing you now know how to handle the most common tactical problems.
VTA is a place to train that is designed to be as realistic as possible while allowing you to make mistakes and learn from them. We will push you one step at a time in a logical progressive format with ever increasingly harder tactical problems to solve. With each success (or lesson learned through a virtual failure) we can begin to load your “tactical tool box” and give you a foundation for future real life situational skills.

~~~ Lara's Favorite Holsters ~~~
"Are you struggling with finding a way to carry a firearm without changing the way you dress? We need something supportive to attach a gun to….hello bra band!
We need somewhere to tuck a firearm that isn’t so obvious…let’s work WITH our curves, shall we? The Flashbang snaps down around your firearm and works with the bras you already own to secure your gun safely and comfortably."
* Lara's testimonial *
This is my first holster of choice and what I uses to carry with everyday! This holster is my first go-to due to the speed at which I can get to my gun and fire a round off. When testing this holster at the range I have my gun out of the holster, aimed and a shot off in under a second. I carry my glock 27 and glock 43 in it.
"The PT-2 concealment holster is a single pouch holster that utilizes a small footprint and narrow belt. Designed to be worn outside the waistband (OWB) or even inside the waistband (IWB) for concealed carry with casual dress or athletic apparel. Although the pouch size can accommodate some full size semi-autos, the PT-2 concealment holster was designed to fit compact semi-autos or smaller revolvers. The PT-2 concealment holster is comfortable, lightweight, and can accommodate a variety of concealed carry positions."
* Lara's testimonial *
If you're a runner like me, you probably want a holster that can handle the bounce of your stride. This holster is it! I carry my pink .38 special in this holster while I log my miles and it runs very comfortably, there is no heavy bounce from the weight of the gun. I also like it because even with my gun in the holster there is still room to fit my GU pouches, phone and car keys. I have never tried to carry it IWB, only OWB.
