About Magnus Group LLC

Magnus Group LLC is a 100% veteran-owned and operated small business that was established to be a catalyst in bringing local communities together through the shared experiences of firearms, church security training, and other forms of preparedness training. 

Magnus Group LLC is dedicated to excellence in training, clarity in instruction, and perseverance in the proliferation of liberty. We boldly adhere to the Gospel of Jesus, the Constitution of the United States of America, and all principles thereunto pertaining. Built upon lifelong experience through hard work, real-world situations, and friendship, Magnus Group LLC will always endeavor to maintain a work ethic beyond reproach, treating every customer with respect and dignity.

Our logo is branded with many historical and personal references. The letters “MG” stands for Magnus Group, which represents the last name of our Co-Founder and CEO, Josh Magnus. Secondly, the 13 stars represent the star of David and those represent the original 13 colonies that declared independence from Great Britain. Our stiletto, or Dagger, pays homage to the World War II Marine Raiders and represents our Co-Founder and COO, Chris Snell, a former Marine Raider. Lastly, the motto “Sacra Ferrum”, is Latin for “Sacred Iron” and is derived from the biblical concept found in Proverbs 27:17 which states “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.”

You’ll learn everything you need to know to implement your shotgun in whatever capacity you use it!

Church Security

Churches face every kind of threat there is, ranging from large-scale mass casualty incidents to verbal altercations. Most churches are vulnerable to these incidents due to being unprepared, unequipped, and untrained to respond. We have developed our Church Security curriculum to enable churches to protect, mitigate, and respond accordingly.
