First Time Gun Owner Training Courses

What will you learn?

1

Congratulations on being a first-time gun owner. Whether it is a pistol, rifle, or shotgun, you’ve come to the right place to receive all of your training. We have a large selection of handguns, rifles, and shotguns for you to learn on. We teach about EVERY aspect of YOUR gun. It is important you bring your gun to class if you have one. We want you to learn on YOUR GUN, not our guns.

2

If you are a first-time pistol owner we will teach you about single and double-action revolvers, semi-automatic handguns, and all of the various components and parts of those action types, stance, grip, and all the shooting fundamentals. As it relates to rifles, there is SO MUCH to discuss. We have two class for this – our basic rifle class and our carbine class. The carbine class focuses solely on any semi-automatic AR or AK style rifle out there. If they build it, we’ve used it and can teach about it. For you first-time shotgun owners out there – we have two classes. The basic shotgun course that teaches you how to use a shotgun for sporting purposes. And, our tactical shotgun course that teaches you about how to use a shotgun for personal defense. These are EXCITING classes that all beginners should take.

Our advanced pistol courses are our Handgun I, II, and III. These are very technical classes that involve a tremendous amount of moving and shooting. Our advanced rifle courses consist of our Long Range (1,000 yards) shooting and our Extreme Long Range takes shooters out to 1.5 miles.

Testimonials

I had a great time learning more about home defense and handling different types of hand guns with Ron. He has a nice collection of hand guns to use which help to become more comfortable with different calibers, gun weight, metal vs. resin etc. His classroom teaching is very good. Shooting on his outside range was fantastic. Shooting out doors is really nice, I prefer it to indoor ranges. I’ll be taking more of his classes in the near future.

David Bartley,

Ron exceeded my expectations with and professionalism and expertise. His attention to safety and detail was impressive. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for firearm training

Paul Manly,

Doesn’t get better than Ron David when comes to understanding gun safety and responsibility. You will not feel intimidated no matter what level of experience you have with guns. Ron’s program is informative, educational, and practical.

Marc Bruno,

Ron and his team go above and beyond to make sure every student is comfortable, capable and well informed! The classroom work is kept engaging and fun, and the range qualification is very safe and methodical. I will recommend ICEFDT to anyone looking for firearms training.

Amy May,

Donell Trusty,

I have attended Joint classes with the owner Ron instructing. He is obviously quite knowledgable. He is also extremely safety oriented while still maintaining a sense of humor and can switch hats on a dime. Having him on the range with you is always a plus and will put you at ease.

Devin Maxwell,
