Frequently Asked Questions

What are the "carry laws" in Georgia?

Instead of repeating all of the material on their site, we would recommend you check out GEORGIACARRY.ORG!

I already know how to shoot. Do I have to start with Level 1?

Many of our students, especially men, grew up with firearms and already have a good understanding of the functions of the firearm. They understand how to align the sights, and they can hit small targets at decent distances. They don't have any formal training, but they are experienced in the sense that they can safely take their firearm to the range and enjoy a day of shooting without incident. Many can completely disassemble the firearm for cleaning and maintenance. With these students, we don't always require that they start with our Basic classes (NRA Basic Pistol or Level 1: Basic Fundamentals). If we have not personally shot with you in the past, we do require that you display a safe and competent working knowledge of your firearm prior to enrolling in an intermediate or advanced course. If you have completed training with other instructors in the past, please be sure to notify us of which training you have completed.

Sometimes we have potential students (again, mostly men) who don't want to sign up for a "basic" or "beginner" class because of some sort of ego conflict. To those people, we say this: manipulating a firearm is a skill. It's not one that you're born with, but rather one that you must work at. If you know that you don't have the proper skills to be in an intermediate or advanced level class- then please begin with either our basic courses or private instruction. Many times we can cover the skills developed in the 4 hour basic course in just 2 hours during a private lesson. I assure you- the skills that you will develop in our basic courses are the foundation of the systematic process that we use throughout all of our courses.

When Is The Next Class?

If you are interested in our course schedule, please check out our Training Updates. If you have questions or would like to request private instruction, you can always Contact Us.

Where are the classes taught at?

Our class locations vary depending on the topics being taught, the instructor teaching it, and the number of students. We teach quite often at Shots Fired Indoor Gun Range and South River Gun Club. Interested in something closer to you? Contact Us and we can set something up. We are certainly willing to travel. We have a complete enclosed trailer that contains all of our gear and electrical needs. In short- if you can provide a safe backstop, then we can bring the range to you!

What will I need to bring?

Everything that you will need for the class will be communicated to you prior to the event. The list of equipment needs varies by which class you are taking. Some basics that are common across all training courses is as follows:

  • Hat with brim
  • Ear/Eye protection (can be provided if needed)
  • Sturdy belt
  • Closed-toe shoes (no sandals or open-toe shoes)
  • Sun screen/bug spray as needed (for outdoor classes)
  • NO low-cut shirts of any kind (the brass can and will burn you)
  • Weather-specific clothing
  • Water/Snacks if needed
  • Firearm and ammunition (can be provided if needed)

I Don't See Any Availability... Now What?

If you are interested in a course, but you don't see it on the Upcoming Events, (or if the course you're interested in is full), please request an available date from us. We are always looking to schedule our next course, and we'd love to do that on a day that works for your schedule.

Remember that we are available for private group courses (minimum of 5 people, maximum is dependant on the course). We are also available to travel reasonable distances if you have a safe backstop for us to shoot at.
