Private Shooting Lessons

Private lessons give a shooter one on one attention to achieve there shooting goals within any discipline. These lessons are great as stand alone training and work especially well when combined with a full class. A private lesson is great for a new shooter who would like to build a little background before jumping into a full length class. Contact us to setup your private lessons. Don’t forget about our Try Me/Buy Me (TM/BM) shoot where you can test drive guns of your choice.

Read what our students have to say about our private lessons:

"Called Matt for a private pistol shooting lesson. Settled on a date and time and proceeded from there. Upon arrival Matt introduced himself and we discussed my needs for the day which was better accuracy with my new pistol. Our meeting at the Syracuse Pistol Club was perfect as we both belong to the club. I couldn't have asked for a more personable and knowledgeable person. He identified my shooting problem and he was right on the button. Using his observations I was able to start hitting the target regularly. From start to finish I really enjoyed the lesson. Thanks Matt I enjoyed both the lesson and the knowledge passed on to me that day. Good stuff." ~ Jim from Clay, NY about our Private Lessons

I enjoyed both the lesson and the knowledge passed on to me that day.

"I've taken both a private lesson, and now the USCCA Basic Concealed Carry Firearms Course with Matt after today. He is an excellent trainer in the classroom and especially on the range during live fire. His extensive experience provides real life examples of the Do's & Do not's of laws, safety, and proper marksmanship techniques; Not just routine target shooting but real life scenarios all responsible permit holders need to know & practice, but can't always do so during routine range time at most clubs. All levels of experience need to take the many courses Matt and his staff offer. Highly recommend; well worth the cost." ~ David from Liverpool, NY about our private lessons and USCCA Certified Concealed Carry Course

He is an excellent trainer…

"This was my first ever experience with "live pistols & handguns". I had taken the online course & was eager and excited but at the same time nervous. There was a lot to process and assimilate but Matt showed a high level of knowledge, experience and patience that translated into a comfortable level of confidence for me. He was there for me in every aspect of safety, proper range protocols, loading & unloading my handgun as well as proper stance, sighting & shooting it with a reasonable level of success. I came out of this class with exactly the experiences I wanted to safely handle my handgun in my everyday experience. I would highly recommend this Phase II class to everyone." ~ Ray from N. Syracuse, NY about our NRA Basic Pistol Phase II Course

This was my first ever experience…
