OUR PHILOSOPHY & BELIEF – The Second Amendment guarantees us the RIGHT to own and bear arms.

However, we view firearms ownership as a tremendous responsibility that goes beyond a right.

We base this philosophy on the reality that your safety and the safety of others may very well depend upon this responsibility. We at the Tactical Training Center want to guide you through this decision and assist you in safely implementing firearms into your life. The safe and appropriate use of a firearm requires skills and, if ultimately used to protect a life, sound judgment.

Preparation and skill development are the key; we take this seriously. Our citizen training programs are specifically designed for the person who has made the choice to safely prepare and one day possibly defend themselves with a firearm. Each of our courses have incorporated the underlying philosophy that firearms skills are acquired in a progressive manner; through instruction, skill development, assessment, and re-assessment.

Recent events in our country and abroad demonstrate the need for at least a rudimentary knowledge of the capabilities of firearms; how they are operated and function, how “safe handling” determined, information on terminal ballistics and most importantly, information on the skills are necessary to operate a handgun.  As a result, we have re-structured our training programs, lowered the costs and made them more convenient for you to attend.  The “real-world” knowledge of firearms can be critical information that your life or the life of a loved one may someday need.

Here at the TTC we have the best instruction available to you. All of our instructors are either current or retired N.J. police officers possessing Firearms Instructor Certifications. Many have a background in SWAT operations and law enforcement Special Operations. Train with us and you’ll have the confidence in knowing that you are well prepared!

TTC 1 on 1 Introductory Firearms Lesson – First Steps

Firearms Instruction, Responsibility, and Safety is the Tactical Training Center of New Jersey’s response to our community’s need for a firearm’s orientation program for new purchasers or users.  Potential Firearms owners are encouraged to take the “first step” of obtaining training and knowledge to see if owning a firearm is right for them.  The TTC Firearms Familiarization program is designed to provide basic hands-on introduction for the safe handling and proper orientation, for one specific firearm type. There are three disciplines in the program: rifle, pistol, and shotgun. This is an introductory course and is very basic in nature.  If you have never fired a firearm before, this is a great course to either start you on your firearm’s journey or for the one of a kind first time experience.  Let our Instructors show how firearms are safely handled.  This training must be booked and may be conducted during open range sessions; it does not appear on the Course Calendar.  Duration of the session is approximately ½ hour of classroom followed by ½ hour on the range.   Includes open range time and includes one rental, eye/ear protection and targets.  Please contact the Main Number at 908-782-9000 for further questions or booking.
