Price: $25 per gun (price decreases as you add more). Includes 5 rounds of ammo and check sheet. $10 per extra 5 rounds of ammo. Add instruction for $75/hr.
Length: Up to 2 Hours
Lead Instructor: Matthew J. Mallory
Are you looking to get a new gun but don’t know which one to buy? Does the gun store laugh-at-you when-you-ask if you can shoot it before you buy it? Do you want to shoot some cool guns, like the UZI, Tommy Gun, and AK-47, that you can’t legally own? When you hear about a new gun that just came out, do you wish you knew someone that had one so you could test it out? Then come test drive some of our guns to find that perfect gun for you! It can also give you the chance to shoot guns that you never plan to buy but would just like to say that you shot, at least once! New and seasoned shooters alike, will save money by testing out these guns before buying them. There is nothing worse than buying a firearm then shooting it to realize you don’t like it, and can’t return it. We have solved that problem for you!
Read what our students have to say about this course:
"I met Matt @ the Syr. gun expo & on that very busy day he gave me his undivided attention on several topics. His seminars are real world, factual, & to the point. I am looking forward to the multi state course when I am eligible, & what a great idea is the try it before you buy it workshop. I plan on being @ both ASAP." ~ Neal from Dewitt, NY about our NY Handgun Safety Course
…seminars are real world, factual, & to the point.
"Loved the class, the hand out was nice to have except maybe formatting it so that there is an area to write comments on instead of only a score mark. Great instructions, loved the liberated structure. Was very helpful in choosing what kind of pistol I want." ~ Emily from Syracuse, NY about our Try It Before You Buy It (TIBYBI) Shoot

We will start with a short safety briefing and provided with a form to make notes on all the guns. While shooting each firearm, you can take notes and rate them on a scale from 1-5 for each of their features, to include: grip, sights, recoil, weight, trigger, accuracy, performance, loading, unloading. Then tally up the totals to point you to the one that fits you and that you like the best! Signup below or contact us for more info.
Pricing is based on the number of guns you choose to shoot. It’s simple! When registering below put in the comments which guns you want to shoot, make payment for the desired amount of guns, and we will reach out to you with the dates we have open to schedule the shoot! Add private lessons for only $75/hr.
