NRA FIRST Steps Rifle < This is scaled-down version of the NRA Basic Rifle in a 4-hour class designed for 4 students or less with your handgun. This class can be done over a kitchen table to go over the basics and then we'll bring you out to the range to apply what you have learned.

So you want to learn how to shoot or just get some valuable pointers on how to improve your stance, grip, offhand shooting, accuracy etc and you want to do it privately.  We understand life can be hectic sometimes and not everyone can make group classes on weekends or even feel comfortable in a group class.

We do private sessions for individuals, couples, families, businesses or even a group of friends that want to learn and hone their skills. We can do sessions during the week, nights and some weekends around your busy schedule. Classroom work is usually done at our classroom or at a location convenient to you. Yes, we'll come to you (standard travel rates apply), to your home, range or a friends house, we try to make it easy for you.

Whether using our firearms or yours we can help, all you have to do is contact us and let us know what you want to learn or improve on such as pistol, rifle, shotgun, defensive pistol, concealed carry, home defense, use of force or state and federal laws and more. Hourly rate is $75 per hour for up to 2 people + plus ammo cost. Contact our Chief Instructor at 978-225-804 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
