Our Story

Smart Firearms was founded to reduce firearms accidents and dramatically improve firearms training at our nation’s Police Agencies. Today, our company produces training guns that demand proper handling at all times, building the muscle memory required for safe and confident shooting.


Meet Mike Farrell


Mike Farrell, President of Smart Firearms Training Devices, is a seasoned entrepreneur, as well as an Airline Pilot.  Dismayed at the poor quality of training guns available, and the frequency of firearms accidents which take place in the United States (1 every 34 minutes), Mike took it upon himself to create a better training gun and better training process. After making his first sale in 2013, Smart Firearms has grown rapidly, more than doubling sales every year.  Smart Firearms Training Guns are now found in some of the finest agencies, academies, and companies across the country, and the world.
