About ATS

  • Applied Training Solutions LLC is the Midwest's premier firearms simulator training center. Our certified instructors use the latest training tools from Smokeless Range and Laser Ammo Training Technologies. The high cost and unpredictable supply of training ammunition make live fire training very expensive. The ATS simulation range is a cost effective solution for maintaining and improving your skills.
  • If you need to train for a specific certification, we either offer drills that simulate the certification or can custom program your certification requirements. The range is located inside the Midland Mall and is a safe, indoor, and controlled training environment.
  • All the training weapons are laser based and no live weapons are allowed in the facility. We ask all CPL holders to not carry their personal firearms within the range. We have a variety of pistol and rifle platform training weapons.
  • Applied Training Solutions LLC is also a distributor of Smokeless Range and Laser Ammo Training Technologies products. We offer their entire line of products and can help you or your organization setup a training environment.
  • We also host private events, special events, competitions, and private on-site training where we bring the entire Smokeless Range system to your facility.
