The staff at NJ Firearms were knowledgable, patient and made my experience less intimidating. I had an awesome experience and am now interested in taking additional classes.

The first hour is just useless. The teacher is bored (as he told us when he came in) and boring. Several of us did not know a thing about gun, and he did not bother explaining anything as "we were going to see when we practice". The "practice" part was better. We shot about 40 bullets each. Would not go back and would definitely not recommend.

We were four ladies taking the Basic 2-hour class. One hour with Instructor Don in the classroom. Learned about gun safety, which eye I was dominant in and other good tips. Then, more than an hour in the range. We were scheduled for a 5:00 Sunday class, had car trouble and got there at 5:15. They were able to put us in the 6:00 class.

I bought this groupon for my sisters birthday and it was great. The staff was super friendly!! They went above and beyond to make our experience amazing. However, the place is a bit dingy and cold. Also had a bit of trouble with making the reservation. After confirming our date, the day of I called to ask for directions and they said we did not have reservations for the time I mentioned. Apparently because it was only 2 of us they changed our time to join a class, but the groupon was for a private lesson. It was extremely last minute, we were already dressed to leave. By the time they figured everything out it was too late so we had to reschedule. Once again, staff was great. The manager offered us an additional hour due to all the misunderstanding. Would definitely recommend this place.

There were only 1-2 instructors for a group of 8-10 people. Though it was fun, but there is always scope of improvement.

At a Glance

NRA-certified instructor Lateif Dickerson gladly shares his firearms expertise for both the real and theoretical world, which led Michio Kaku to seek his insight for Discovery Channel's Sci Fi Science. When not contemplating the possibility of Star Wars-caliber firepower, Lateif leads classes in both armed and unarmed self-defense for beginner through advanced students at New Jersey Firearms Academy. He and his team also extend their courses to specialty topics, such as First Aid in the wilderness. Beyond civilian training, Lateif instructs law-enforcement and security personnel with programs such as SORA and K-9 training. The academy also houses a shop stocked with firearms gear.
