“He engages the class well and keeps everyone involved.”

Last night I attended the Basic Pistol class with Tony. Even though this class is geared for beginning shooters and I have been a gun owner since 1983, the class was very informative and I learned a lot. Tony has a great teaching style that made learning a serious topic fun and easy to understand. He engages the class well and keeps everyone involved. During the live fire session Anthony worked with me and helped me overcome some bad habits I’ve developed over the years and he also has a nice approach to teaching firearms safety and handling. I also observed both Anthony and Tony taking first-time shooters from nervous first trigger pulls to consistent groupings. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. Last week I also took the UT & FL non-resident CCW courses. He also has a great presentation style and managed to get a room full of applicants trained and processed promptly. Your Gun For Hire  facility is also first class. It’s clean and welcoming. Most indoor ranges I’ve been to are dark and not user-friendly. GFH stands head and shoulders above the competition. Thanks again for offering this opportunity to the public to increase firearms safety and skills. I look forward to another class soon.

“The minute I walked in we were greeted and welcomed like family.”

“The minute I walked in we were greeted and welcomed like family. I never thought businesses did that anymore it was truly refreshing for my son and I to experience that type of environment. Even the owner came over and welcomed us to the family. We’re new gun owners and didn’t know much about what we bought. I was a bit embarrassed but that was put to rest the minute we met the instructors. Not only did these guys know there stuff they knew how to deliver it to the entire class. I am truly fortunate we began at Gun For Hire. Next up Holster draw! Anthony please feel free to use this on your site or email” – Sincerely John & Sebastian

“Highly recommend taking an NRA Basics Pistol Course.”

“Highly recommend taking an NRA Basics Pistol course. It’s a great experience and makes you much more educated on the topic. It’s also a lot of fun! Taught by ex-military and retired police (and some both!), they are very friendly and willing to share their great experience and knowledge with you to dispel myths and irrational fear about firearms. Hell, they might even improve your shooting, too. (No guarantees)! Thanks to Gun For Hire in Woodland Park, NJ. Thanks, Tony, Doug, Guy, and Moe for your military service and continuing education. #gunforhirerange”
