GUNS 101

From novices to Expert marksman picking the right class can be a difficult choice for our clients. AZHD offers multiple courses for a certain weapon system.  Each course has been designed to help every client gain skills to be a experienced weapon owner. When trying to decide which firearms training class is best for you, the easiest place to start is identifying your skill level and needs.

  • Have you ever been to a firearms training class?
  • How often do you shoot or train with your weapon?
  • Do you have your own gear set up?
  • What do you want to be able to do?
  • Would you rather a 1-on-1 class or a casual group experience?

If you’re just getting started our Basic courses will help set you up for success. Had a class before but it’s been awhile? Then our Fundamental classes might be right for you. Ready to move forward in your training? Then our Defensive and Tactical courses are what you’re looking for.

All of Arizona Home Defense’s shooting classes are private lessons, either for just you or your party. Learning new skills can be stressful, especially when you’re surrounded by strangers, so we eliminated that. We believe that there should be no more than three shooters per instructor. If you don’t have your own gear, not to worry, we have you covered. Our armory contains a variety of rifles, shotguns, and handguns to fit your needs. (Plus, ammo is included!)
