About the Course

In addition to our group training courses, KCG offers private instruction for every type of firearm (handgun, rifle, shotgun) and everyone from the first-time beginner to the experienced shooter and everyone in between. Your private instruction session is completely customizable and tailored to you.

Your one-hour lesson will begin with a quick assessment to better understand your experience level, goals, and objectives. Our goal is for you to leave the lesson with knowledge to coach yourself in practice.

Whether you're brand new to the world of firearms or an experienced shooter looking to develop new skills, we are here to help!
