TTC 1 on 1 Introductory Firearms Lesson

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, due to COVID restrictions implemented by the Governor, we cannot use any of our rental eye and ear protection for the public at this time. You can either bring your own or we can sell you a package for $19.99 which includes the glasses and ear muffs. Please contact the Main Number at 908-782-9000 for further questions or booking.
