At Dragonman's, we know guns can be an intimidating topic, so we want everyone to have the opportunity to feel as comfortable and knowledgeable as possible. These courses are designed for individuals who have little to no experience handling a firearm and/or wish to obtain their concealed carry permit. Regardless of whether you are a first-time gun buyer, or an avid shooter, you will leave each class with the insight necessary to solidify the attitude, confidence, and awareness it takes to be a responsible gun owner for years to come! 

 

Classes are offered every weekend by Melissa, the manager of Dragonman's and Certified NRA Instructor.  Melissa has been NRA certified for four years in basic pistol, advanced defensive pistol, Inside the home, Outside the home, shotgun and rifle firearms training. She has 20+ years of experience to firearm exposure and gained invaluable training education from law enforcement officials and respected NRA instructors from around the country. 

 

Our assistant instructor is Dave, a veteran of the U.S. Navy Seals and prior certified paramedic in Brooklyn, New York. He is certified in advanced pistol, intro and advanced rifle, basic shotgun and teaches the medical component of all our courses. Dave also assists in the customer service department and gunsmithing on occasion. He's been a certified NRA instructor for eight years.
