Our basic firearms course is designed specifically for those new to firearms or who want to improve their skills.  Our experienced instructors will teach you everything you need to know about firearm safety, handling, and shooting techniques.

We focus on small groups, only 6 students per class.  Designed to get you comfortable handling a firearm and prepare you for the Utah Concealed Firearms Course.  We also have intermediate and advanced firearms courses, with the core curriculum focused on the shooting simulator. The safest, most comfortable way to learn any new technique.

We understand that learning about firearms can be intimidating, which is why my wife (also a certified NRA Instructor) and I wanted to create a supportive and welcoming environment for all students.  We believe everyone has the right to feel safe and empowered, and we're here to help you achieve that goal!

This course is certified by the National Rifle Association and follows the NRA Pistol Marksmanship Simulator Training curriculum 

Does this take the place of being out on the range?  No.  It gets you confident and prepared for the range!
