About QSI


Our History

Quorum Security, Inc. was founded in Omaha, Nebraska in 1992 by Erik D. Pakieser, a police officer and US Army veteran. In 1997, the company moved to Minnesota.

Our instructors have provided professional firearms and tactical training to over 10,000 students, including military, law enforcement, corrections, security personnel, private companies and armed citizens.  We are dedicated to becoming the “go-to” firearms training organization in the Upper Midwest.

Our Mission

You don’t have to travel all over the country to get professional-level defensive firearms training.  QSI has brought this level of training home to Minnesota.  We offer dynamic courses based on real-world experience using cutting edge techniques in a supportive, professional environment.

Experience the QSI difference for yourself:


Our classes are the best priced in the region. You will not find training of this quality, from instructors this experienced, for this price anywhere else!


We’re located right here in the upper Midwest. You don’t have to travel to the East or West Coast, or the deep South to get professional firearms training!


Our friendly, knowledgeable instructors work patiently with students to unlock their full potential, regardless of their level of experience.  Our students like our staff so much that they keep coming back!

"I thought the class was great. Just the right mix of lecture, breaks, handling and shooting time. I appreciated how you customized the class for each person's skill and comfort level, challenging some more aggressively while calmly supporting others like me. It helped to make me feel included and not intimidated. Thank you!" --- Steve V., Minnesota
