At a Glance
Personal Gun Trainer's NRA-certified instructors, Auric Gold and Andrea Alongi, design firearm classes based on the latest Wisconsin gun laws. These include beginner-friendly courses on the state's concealed-carry laws, during which the instructors not only teach how to carry a pistol, they also explain the subtle mental skills required to be a responsible firearms owner. Aside from these custom-designed programs, the gun experts teach lessons straight from the NRA curriculum. During NRA pistol courses, they lecture on safety and then teach hands-on skills for various calibers of firearms.
