A great option for firearm instruction, private lessons are offered by OnTarget for those shooters who seek a more personal firearm class, flexibility with a training schedule, or to focus on specific firearm skills.

Whether you are seeking instruction for a handgun, rifle, or shotgun, OnTarget has the right instructor who is a subject matter expert on the specific firearm platform. Participants are invited to bring in their personal firearms or use our rentals. There is no extra charge when using our rental guns.

The beauty of private lessons is that the participant sets the pace of instruction, chooses the exact topics, and selects a mutually acceptable appointment with the instructor.

Private lessons vary from beginner to the expert who may be seeking advanced fire and maneuver drills. The OnTarget Firearm Training Unit (FTU) will employ their flexibility and creativity to design a training session for any shooter at any level of experience.

Private Lesson Fee

The private lesson fee is $100 an hour up to two individuals. Most sessions run two hours as we begin in the classroom and finish on the range.
For additional shooters, other than the original two, OnTarget will ask $25 per the extra person per hour. For example, a family of 5 would like two hours of home defense training:
– $200 for the first two participants
– $150 for 3 additional participants
– $350 is the total for instruction

Additional Costs

Participants are expected to provide their own ammunition. They may bring their own or purchase it here at OnTarget. There is a charge of $1.00 per target but rental guns and eye & ear protection is provided free of charge.
