The mission of HPDS is to create a safe and fun environment within the community to participate in one of America’s oldest sports. Our goal is to educate “We the People” in real-world scenarios by implementing defensive training tactics and marksmanship techniques for the purpose of defending ourselves and our families while exercising our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country . . .” 
-- James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434, 8 June 1789
