  • $69 for a six-hour Wisconsin concealed-carry course and shooting range instruction (a $175 value)
  • $129 for a six-hour Wisconsin concealed-carry course and shooting range instruction for two (a $350 value)

During the lecture portion of the beginner-friendly course, instructors teach students about Wisconsin's gun laws, including the state's concealed-carry law and self-defense laws. They then cover the safe operation of various revolvers and pistols. The instructors also lecture on more nuanced aspects of gun ownership, including how to form safety plans and stay mentally alert. Participants should bring along a photo ID, as well as paper and a pen.

After the initial session, customers schedule a separate date to work with instructors at the range. An additional range fee is required. Customers may bring their own gun and ammo from home or obtain them from the range for an additional fee. See complete details on the course here.

Though Personal Gun Trainer sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

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.
