Safety & Education

Classes:

Our classes focus on beginner level training and include 4 hours of classroom training and 4 hours of hands-on training at a local shooting range. We will be offering Pistol, Rifle and Shotgun specific courses. Pistol courses require extra online education to be completed prior to the class. Ages 12 and above are allowed to take the class, but ages 12-15 must be accompanied by a parent.  If you have questions about the course, please call us or you can email our instructor Joseph directly at josephowen@josephowen.com.
