Attending a shooting class for 8 hours may seem like a daunting task, but remember how long it took you to learn to drive a car.  All of our classes focus on preparing each and every student to be safe and confident while handling many different makes and models of firearms.  Holding a gun and shooting at a target is really only a very small part of learning to safely and effectively handle and shoot guns.  Like any new sport or skill, seeking out professional training, and following up with regular practice is the key to success. Our goal is to assure every student leaves feeling confident in their newly acquired skill.  Eight hours is really just the start...and a short amount of time to learn to be safe and effective with guns. 

You can find shorter and cheaper classes, but don't compromise your safety or the safety of others because you don't want to give up a day of your time or pay a little more.

Learning to shoot a handgun can be a fun and exciting experience when done in a comfortable, safe environment with professional instructors.  This class is a great refresher course for shooters with limited experience, but is specifically designed for students who are new to guns with no shooting experience.  Once you have completed one of our classes, you are invited to join our shooting club every Monday evening from 6:30-8:30pm, (no charge), and enjoy shooting practice with our instructors and other student alumni.  It's a great way to stay current and practice your skills with other shooters in a friendly environment. 

During this class, we will provide all needed equipment, including firearms and ammunition, eye and ear protection.  Semi-automatics and revolvers will be available.  Class size is limited to no more than 10 students so everyone gets plenty of one on one instruction.
