Beginner Classes

Whether it's our First Shots class or the NRA Basics class, you'll leave with a solid foundation and a hunger more time on the trigger.  We understand that the first time at the range can be filled with mixed emotions because we've been there and done that.

We will take you from limited knowledge to understanding the how and why so when you get to the range you have the self-confidence that your first shots will be on target.

Check out the options below and book your beginner class with us today!


First Shots*

Our beginner classes were developed from the ground up for the individual who has never shot a firearm before and needs a private setting.

Classroom topics are:

  • Firearm Safety

  • Terminology & Range Etiquette

  • Basic Mechanics & Types of Firearm Actions

  • Marksmanship Fundamentals

Range time will focus on practical exercises designed around applying Marksmanship Fundamentals.  You'll confidently take those First Shots at a bulls-eye target with small caliber firearms and progress from there. 

Taking the First Shots-Handgun class qualifies you for $25 credit towards our NC Conceal Carry class.  Click here for more info on that class and booking information.
