Gun For Hire Build A beAR™

We are now offering a two-part course where you will spec, order, build, and shoot your own AR rifle! We supply the tools – skills – guidance – and expertise. You can build your own for less and it will be customized to you. The first course is the introductory course where we spec and choose your build parts. The second course is where we build, shoot, clean then repeat! Note: As part of this class it is necessary to purchase a “lower” assembly, so you must have a valid firearms ID card.

Note: Parts are not included. We will help direct you in the purchase of your lower as well as other parts, but you are free to buy wherever you want. We will not be selling any parts at the school.

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

All kidding aside, after our build, I’m trying to convince Craig to do more with me at the range – enroll together in especially carbine, but also handgun classes at GFH. And you really did more than just teach us the AR platform with this Build a beAR course; it was honestly more then we really let you know……a recent event this past November had us dealing with loss of our younger sister. She was 19.
By you making it so enjoyable, informative & exciting it helped us stay focused and ultimately close and continue on our path as tightly connected brothers who love the firearms world and are also still trying to get by this loss. So when we say we appreciate everything, it really means so much more for us. I shared this because sometime you never really know how big of an impact you make with people and how valuable it really is. See you soon and thanks again brother, really. You couldn’t have created a better experience. – Chris. GFH Member.

Instructor Bios:

All of our high-level courses are taught by experienced professionals with the credentials to prove it. They are all trained and certified by the N.J. Police Training Commission, N.J. Department of Criminal Justice, and possess Federal Law Enforcement Instructor Certifications. They are experts in N.J. Use of Force Policies, and are always updating the course material with the latest use of force guidelines and case law. At Gun For Hire, this is not a “hobby”, but a full-time, legitimate vocation. Any “instructor” can teach you something, but only a select few can teach you the “why” or the “root of law” to justify your actions. If you were to use your newly acquired skills and were required to justify your actions, Gun For Hire instructors are ready, willing, and able to testify in your defense, as long as you had followed the training and procedures we provided. It does you, and your loved ones, no good if you survive the fight but have spend the next thirty years in prison because of the wrong advice you were given by a part-time amateur “instructor”.
