Atlanta Motorcycle & Handgun Schools

Before you purchase or acquire a firearm, the responsible step for you should be training in the safety and use of firearms. Whether your interests lie in recreational shooting, competitive shooting, hunting, personal protection, home defense, historical reenactment, collecting, or simply exercising your constitutional rights, training is critical to proficient use and overall enjoyment of your firearm. The ownership of firearms is a serious undertaking. The likelihood of someone being seriously injured or killed, not to mention the opportunity for tremendous property damage, all of which could result in lawsuits costing your freedom or everything you and your family own is just too great a chance to take.

Firearms can be a source of great satisfaction and peace of mind with the right training. We have discovered defensive handgun use is one of the subjects that does not easily lend itself to self-teaching. Very little of what a defensive hand gunner needs to know can be learned from a book or from websites. Like most physical skills, defensive handgunnery is best learned through hands-on training with a professional instructor.

“Keep it simple” takes on more meaning when a person is placed under stress. One can hear or read about the degradation of fine motor skills, but nothing reinforces this like having it happen to you personally. Yes, weaknesses are exposed in one's own skill and possibly equipment. It is better to experience this during training than in a real-life situation.

Training and focused practice are the only way to develop the skill necessary to properly react during an emergency. The moment that you need to use your weapon in self defense will be the most stressful of your life. Your performance and handling of the situation is guaranteed to fall back to the level of your training. If you have no training, chances are that the outcome will not be what you expect.

Private Coaching

We are available for private coaching tailored to your shooting requirements. Call us to discuss options.



Atlanta Motorcycle & Handgun Schools offers the same private, personalized lessons to handgun customers that we offer to our motorcycle riding customers. The times shown are for normal NRA group sessions. Since our classes are one-on-one, the actual time may vary and is normally shorter. Once we meet an objective, we will move on. This may take longer in the group sessions. The private sessions normally meet objectives quicker allowing for extra shooting time.

With one-on-one instruction, we are able to closely watch your shooting technique and offer advice immediately. As the saying goes, "Practice makes perfect, only when you are practicing perfectly." In group classes offered by many instructors , students are given free range to shoot and only provided assistance when requested. As a new shooter, we may not know when to ask the right question!
