Oregon's new personal protection training is on it's way!

What is Ballistic Arts?

Ballistic Arts is a system where new skills are learned, muscle memory is developed and confidence is built.  Whether you're a new shooter or a seasoned vet, Ballistic Arts has a lot to offer.  Focusing on attainable results for regular people is our goal.  Ballistic Arts focuses on real world tactics to learn option to avoid the use of deadly force unless absolutely necessary.  We strive to give you the training and teach you the confidence to know when, where and how to legally make the right decision to survive.  This is real-world training for the rest of us and one size doesn't fit all.  Age, fitness level, injuries an handicaps are all taken into consideration to create a unique, custom and reproducible training for anyone.

Conceptually, we will combine a indoor shooting range, training facility while incorporating a plethora of other services to encourage, accommodate and develop responsible gun owners and defense practitioners.

Where are we located?

We are still in the negotiating stages and don't yet have our permanent facility.  Our classes are held at a variety of locations and ranges in the area.  We can bring the course to your business location or even do private training in your home.  A lot of planning and considerations are going into the selection for our permanent home.  We would love to hear your ideas!  Let us hear from you.

About the concept designer & lead trainer

Greg Fishback is a defensive firearm instructor and non-lethal trainer for Ballistic Arts.  Greg has been shooting most of his life in general accuracy training, hunting or competitive shooting.   After receiving tactical firearms training and obtaining his concealed handgun license, Greg was inspired to teach others and develop "The Art of the Gun" which is a discipline that distills years of training techniques into safer and more real-life combat ready students preparing them with options other than lethal force in potential life threatening situations.

Greg's qualifications include: NRA Pistol Instructor, Chief Range Safety Officer, USCCA Certified Instructor, NRA Refuse to be a victim instructor, Taser Certified Instructor, graduate of multiple shooting courses and over 10 years of martial arts experience.  Greg holds a black belt in Kung-Fu and is ranked in Northern Shaolin Eagle-Claw.

As a supporter of the 2nd Amendment, Greg hopes to inspire shooters to train for proficiency and technique to become ambassadors as defensive gun owners.
