Here at VGS we deliver the NRA’s complement of Basic and First Steps training programs, including Basic and First-Steps Pistol, Basic and First-Steps Rifle, and Basic and First-Steps Shotgun student courses. The NRA Basic Pistol course goal is to “…teach the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning and operating a pistol safely.”
We also deliver the NRA’s complement of Personal Protection courses; both the Inside the Home and Outside the Home course. These courses are scheduled by request at this time, due to the range requirements of the live fire exercises.
For our Basic and First-Steps courses, course fees include everything you need, including student packets, range safety equipment, firearm use, ammunition, range fees, and even lunch (depending on the class). There are no hidden fees.
Each of our classes is staffed by at least two certified instructors and all range sessions are conducted with one-to-one student-instructor ratios.
We have also developed a VGS branded “Concealed Carry” line of courses, with live fire lessons geared to being conducted at most commercial ranges. We also deliver a variety of courses that require no range time, from NRA Home Firearm Safety to firearm maintenance, from Range Safety Officer to first aid. We are also available for individual instruction and coaching on the range.
