- $99 for an introductory gun safety course for rifles or pistols ($240 value)
During the course, students begin with classroom instruction that covers safe gun handling, ammo calibers, maintenance, and the fundamentals of shooting. The second half of each pistol or rifle course moves to an outdoor range, where participants get hands-on experience in applying what they learned in the classroom, subject to availability. Each course typically has 10–20 students, along with one NRA-affiliated instructor for every 10 students. Eye and ear protection is included.
Buyers should contact U.S. Training Group directly about the course schedule. Participants must purchase a box of ammunition ($40) and pay range fees ($16) upon convening for class.

“Both Phil and Ken were wonderful instructors and were very thorough and serious regarding safety. Phil was very calming and I felt at ease right next to him, but at the same time, he is very to the point and informative with his instruction and safety. Ken on the other hand was very energetic and I felt he wanted wanted me to get as excited about the experience without sacrificing safety. I had the tightest grouping working with Ken, however I felt that Phil, being the veteran he is, gave me some really good stuff to work on. I'm not sure if a HSC can be made available after the class, but that would be something I would have been interested in. Thanks again for the wonderful class!”
