About us


APEX OC currently is organized by Chase Thompson, a medically retired Army combat hardened Non-Commisioned Officer is an Arizona Dept of Public Safety Licensed, NRA Certified, and United States Concealed Carry Association partnered Firearms Instructor.

Along with the firearms training, you can be taught medical life saving technique, by our Chief Instructor Chase, or by one his American Health and Safety Institute certified Life Saving Instructors.

As a young man, growing up on a small farm in Missouri, he hunted and fished from the moment he could walk.

A decade of military service resulted in him conducting sniper training, mountaineer, and hand to hand combat training, among other survival techniques. Within those combat deployments, Chase conducted special operations missions along side some of the most elite members of the United States military.
Chase, being lucky enough to have received surgeries and rehabilitation, other disabled veterans werent so lucky; this motivated him to help those who wouldn’t receive the same opportunities.

All funding for APEX OC excursions and accommodations is bootstrapped by APEX OC. APEX OC was formally established as a Limited Liability Company on April 21st, 2022.

APEX OC is looking forward to the future and providing disabled veteran outdoors enthusiasts with the same experience as those more able.
