I took the Pistol Step One Class with Jimmy. This class is the most fun in 4 hours anyone can get plus it’s very educational! I also went to the Test Drive this fall and had a blast–pun intended. The test drive gave me hands on with both 12 & 20 gauge shotguns, so I knew which was best for me. I then went out and bought a 20 gauge. The Test Drive also gave me hands on with some weapons I could only dream of having an opportunity to fire with an experienced instructor right there at my side. All the instructors were terrific at the Test Drive. Again a lot of fun in a highly safe environment. I recommend these classes and events to everyone I meet, especially anyone with no gun experience or those who want to try shooting but do not yet have a NJ Firearms ID Card or Permits to purchase. The guys and gals at Gun For Hire also offer invaluable advice on the application process or other gun ownership issues. Gun For Hire classes and instruction is the best money I have spent, and gave me the basic knowledge base to wisely purchase the right guns for my abilities. – Elizabeth A.
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know what a “blast” I had yesterday… (I’m Steve, who had never shot anything before, and needed a band aid )
In addition, I want to let you know about one of your employees, who truly helped make me really feel at ease yesterday…Pilar. I had the pleasure of talking with her on the phone last week, and she promised that I would have a great time, even after I had told her I had never shot before. Believe it or not, she actually remembered me when I saw her and she went out of her to help me. She was great on the phone and even nicer, in person. She truly is an asset to your organization, and I thought you should know that.
Thanks Anthony, I look forward to seeing you again at one of your classes that I’ll be signing up for.
I just wanted to drop you a line saying that my wife and I really enjoyed the "Gun Test Drive" yesterday. I was surpised that my wife had such a good time since she didn't participate in any of the shooting, but there was such a "chummy" feeling and commaraderie among the attendees and staff that she felt right at home.
She didn't shoot because she had shot a Glock 9mm previously and found that it was too heavy / too much recoil for her to conrol and most of the handguns were at the test drive were 9mm and above. For myself, I found the lack of uniformity among the semi-auto pistols a bit confusing (safeties and clip release actions / locations). As a novice, I was surprised at being able to notice the differences in the types of sights used. The "three dot" sights on seemed to be the easiest for me on the handguns.
I did enjoy the .38 S&W 620 revolver, shooting both single and double action modes. Which leads me to my front runner as a first gun purchase for target shooting and as a premise piece. I'm leaning toward a S&W 686 or Ruger GP100 with 4-inch barrel and polymer grips. That would allow me to shoot .38s for target practice but chamber .357s for home defense. My wife would probably go with a .380 semi-auto (but something simple). She had previously shot the Bersa Thunder and liked the "pretty little pistol with the pink grips", until it went off like a flash-bang grenade. Would a DOA be simpler for her? But, something bigger than a pocket / subcompct pistol? Any suggestions?
Getting back to the Gun Test Drive, the big surprise for me was the 12-gauge shotgun with the pistol grip. That was fun! I had never fired a shotgun before. It was easy to acquire the target and aim. The pump action was almost second nature. However, my shoulder is still stiff from firing the 20-gauge (I won't mention what my arm and hands felt like after shooting two rounds from the Desert Eagle!).
Ok, so once my wife and I move out of New York and away from Generalisimo Bloombito, we could own guns for home protection and target shooting. We're likely moving to Pennsylvania or (more likely) Delaware. I believe both states require some formal training certification in safety and proficiency if we wanted to go for CCWs. My question is then: Which of the three couses that you offer would be best for my wife and I to attend? If we're going to continue to persue target shooting as a sport, we feel it important to get formal safety and profeciency training.
Sorry to bend your ear on this, but gun laws vary so much from state-to-state.
Again, I just wanted to thank you for a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon target shooting, learning the "ins and outs" of the various guns and making new friends.
The biggest part of life is just showing-up for it.
