  • Safety

    Safety in using any firearm must be taken seriously for smooth operation while keeping everyone around you clear of danger. Safety is our number one target.

  • Ammo

    Information is the best equipment we can give you. We will equip you and give you the opportunity to use that knowledge with safe and fun hands-on training.

  • Trigger control

    The shooter should press the trigger smoothly so that the sights remain on the target. If your finger is not pulling straight back, you may be slightly pulling or pushing your muzzle.

  • Aiming

    We want you to get the most out of all your training. Remembering that ignorance is simply not having the knowledge which can be obtained through training and gathering information. When you are careless that is when accidents can happen.

Let us know you interest in our gun classes so we can serve you better. Just answer a few questions, and we will have a solution just for you!
