Handgun rentals are available.
Mark Cortis wants people to feel safe and comfortable when firing a handgun, so much so that the NRA-certified instructor offers a lifetime retake option for his concealed-carry students. That's no small gesture. Since 1991, Mr. Cortis has trained thousands of people, including those who work as professional security officers, private detectives, and law-enforcement officers. He's also pretty easy to get ahold of, offering classes seven days a week.
Action Impact Range is the domain of William Kucyk, a US Army veteran and former lawman who spent decades commanding a detective bureau, conducting special investigations, and serving on a SWAT team. His years of expertise and experience as an attorney lend a wealth of knowledge in leading a team of range safety officers and making informative videos.
Beyond maintaining its range, Firearm Exchange's team hosts classes taught by instructors claiming NRA certifications, covering topics ranging from basic firearms operation to hunting safety. For those who bring their own firearms, a cleaning room contains maintenance supplies so shooters can clear their pieces of gunpowder residue. The range hosts social events as well.
Located inside Shooter's Service, Shooting Range & Archery Center has been a staple of Michigan's tri-county area since 1975. The store stocks for the beginner and experienced archer with both traditional and modern compound bows and crossbows. Certified bow technicians conduct all restringing and repairs. Besides supplying gear, they also offer instructional classes on Saturday mornings and can accommodate outings and parties that families and friends can enjoy.
Whether visitors are arming themselves with knowledge or a bow and arrow, the experts at Cleland's Outdoor World equip them with the training, tools, and accessories they need. Onsite archery instruction includes private lessons, as well as certified training aimed to condition young people for competition in the Junior Olympics. Other classes include knife sharpening and basic firearm reloading, and the shop also carries a variety of equipment with which visitors can exercise their new skills. Cleland's Outdoor World also houses an onsite pistol range.
Made up of former law enforcement officers and NRA-certified instructors, Homestead Training’s team teaches beginning and intermediate shooters to handle firearms comfortably and responsibly. For guests completely new to guns, the teachers go over pistol safety, operation, and cleaning in a classroom setting before imparting shooting instruction during a range session. During basic pistol and personal protection in the home classes instructors grant individual attention to small groups of pupils as they cover subjects such as Michigan firearm laws, types of ammunition, and safe gun storage. After each class, if needed, the instructors offer to spend time reviewing the ins and outs of your specific gun, highlighting necessary skills such as assembly and cleaning.
