Learn to Shoot Safety Class

Our Learn to Shoot Safety Class takes non-shooters and beginners through the basics of learning to handle a shotgun and getting range ready. This class is offered every Saturday and Sunday at 9:45am, 11:30am, 1:15pm, and 3:00pm. The Learn to Shoot Safety class covers range etiquette/rules, safely handling of the shotgun, loading/unloading, stance and shooting clay targets. Each class holds 6 people and pre-registration is required as we cannot guarantee walk-in space. The class is $35 per person, lasts about 1 ½ hours, and all equipment is included, just come dressed for the weather. Open to everyone age 12 and up.

Our Learn to Shoot /Learn the Game Class is offered on most Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year at 5:00p.m. This class includes all aspects of the Learn to Shoot Safety class AND goes to our Wobble game field to "Learn the Game" with the instructor. Students will play a full game of Wobble with hands on coaching and direction from your instructor. This class is limited to 5 students to ensure that all participants receive ample time with the instructor. The class is $55 per person, lasts about 2-2 ½ hours, and all equipment is included, just come dressed for the weather. Open to everyone age 12 and up.


*Due to COVID restrictions, all students must provide their own safety glasses.  This may be regular glasses, sunglasses or other eye coverings.  We do have inexpensive glasses available for separate purchase if needed.

*You may withdraw from a Learn to Shoot Safety class or a Learn the Game class for a refund up until two days before your scheduled class.

Private Lessons

For folks wanting private lessons we have many NSCA certified instructors that are qualified to help folks who have never handled a shotgun on up to Master Class shooters. For $75 an hour you and your instructor go over specifically what you want to work on. It could be any of the games we have here, your stance, gun mounting or just wanting to become more efficient with your shotgun. We can accommodate up to 3 people in our private lessons. The first person is $75 per hour and each additional person is $25 each per hour. Open to everyone age 12 and up.

*$75 covers the time with the instructor.  If you need a gun rental, ammunition or targets that is a la carte.
