Private Lessons

$80 individual
$135 for 2 shooters

If you are brand new to shooting, or just getting back into the game, it is recommended that you participate in a private lesson. Private lessons are approximately 1.5 hours of one-on-one instruction from an NRA certified range safety officer. If you would like to utilize your personal firearm, please ensure your firearm is unloaded prior to the lesson and that your ammunition is the correct type to use (please see Range Rules and Regulations).

Targets and eye/ear protection are provided with the lesson if you do not have your own. Firearm rentals and ammunition are available but are not included in the price and will be an additional fee. Lessons are offered seven days a week (unless there is an event taking place) and need to be booked in advance (no deposit required). To reserve a time, please contact an associate at the range counter and we will be happy to make the appointment for you.

**Please note that if you are 15 minutes late, your lesson will be canceled.**

Firearm Safety Rules:

  • Treat every firearm as if it were loaded
  • Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
  • Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
  • Never point a firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy.

Lessons include:

  • Understanding the basic firearms safety rules
  • Eye dominance
  • Nomenclature/parts
  • Strong hand/weak hand
  • Stance
  • Grip
  • Sight alignment/sight picture
  • Loading/unloading
  • Trigger control

Private lessons will begin in a classroom setting that does not include live fire on the shooting range. Once your Range Safety Officer feels that you are proficient and that you understand what you learned in the classroom setting, your lesson will move to a “hands-on” live fire approach in the shooting range. They will assist you with applying the fundamentals recently acquired in the classroom and even further your understanding of the fundamentals during the live fire session.

Handgun 1

Let us help you really put in work with your firearm.

Our Handgun 1 course picks up from our individual private lessons and dives more into fundamentals, helping you fine tune your shooting skills, while also working on drawing from an outside the waist holster (open carry style), with a close student/instructor ratio.

This 4 hour, beginner/intermediate level course goes into further understanding technique and to help you understand what works for you.
