Training Recommendations

Head off any bad habits you might have and learn your way around a firearm the right way with training. Watch the video to the left for our top three training recommendations or read on below.

New Shooter Class: If you’re new to shooting and have little to no experience with a handgun, this is where you should start. Our instructors will patiently teach you the fundamentals of shooting and the basics of gun safety, so you can have confidence and fun on the range. All equipment provided by Shoot Smart for the class. Sigh up for a New Shooter class here.

On Target: Maybe you already have some basic firearms experience and are looking to take the next step. If your accuracy is inconsistent and you’d like to sharpen up your aim, our On Target Class might be right for you. We’ll help correct your aim and coach you in increasing your accuracy and shooting tighter group. A great class for both beginners and experienced shooters alike. Sigh up for an On Target class here.

Private Instruction: Maybe you learn better in a one-on-one setting, or have specific needs you would like to address. Then a Private Lesson is the perfect option. Meet with a certified Instructor for one hour for a completely customized training experience. Schedule a Private Lesson here.

Range Tips & Tricks

Make your range experience as safe and fun as possible with these basic tips and tricks. Watch the video to the right or read on below.

  1. Know the range rules. Read the range rules now to know what's expected. View the rules here. (link to rules page)
  2. Speed up your check in process by completing the participation agreement online here. (link to waiver)
  3. Wear range appropriate clothing. We recommend a button up shirt or shirt with a high collar, long pants, closed toe no slip shoes (tennis shoes, boots, or flats), and a ball cap. Warning! Hot brass casings can fall in low cut or open back tops.
  4. Don't shoot the same boring silhouette or bulls-eye targets. Pick a fun target from time to time like a zombie, battleship, or poker target.

Rental Fleet How To

We have a large rental fleet available at all locations. This means more options to choose from when searching for the perfect firearm, or more ways to have a "blast" on the range with family and friends. Watch the video to the left to view our top rental recommendations or keep reading below.
