Choose Between Two Options

During each of the above 5- to 6.5-hour courses, students begin with 2.5 hours of classroom instruction. The second half of each course moves to an outdoor range in either Los Altos or San Leandro, where participants spend the remainder of the course applying what they learned in the classroom. The introductory courses cover safe handling, ammo calibers, maintenance, and the fundamentals of shooting. The intermediate course gives students a choice of firearms to practice with. Each course typically has 10–20 students, along with one NRA-certified 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 during the course ($24) and pay range fees ($12–$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!”
