Under Construction — Coming Soon!

Are you trained or untrained, that is the question.  We're here to help YOU get trained!

Purpose of this website

The purpose of this website is to bring together handgun owners who want to learn to shoot, with firearms instructors who can teach you to shoot.  We also provide training videos to help you get started.

  • Our handgun training videos help you learn basic firearms safety and gun handling skills.  Watch these videos to see what it is like to learn to shoot.
  • Next, find a training class where you can learn to shoot.  Our website lets you sign up and pay for the classes.  Think of us as your "ticket agency" for firearms instruction. 
  • Check out our directory of firearms instructors where you can learn about their skills and specialties.  All training classes are provided by these instructors at their locations.  New Shooter 101® does not have instructors of its own, except in our videos.
  • We also include a directory of shooting ranges that welcome new shooters by providing beginner's training classes at their facility.
In a nutshell, we match up people who want to learn to shoot, with a network of instructors who can teach you to shoot, along with places to shoot.

Who can benefit from new shooter training?

While our main focus of this website is for beginners, there are three groups who can benefit from the type of training offered by our network of instructors:

  • New handgun owners, or those thinking of buying
  • Those of you who used to shoot, and want to revive your skills
  • Experienced shooters who have never received formal training and want to learn the latest techniques

Get started by watching our training videos

Our videos help you learn how to shoot handguns skillfully and safely—as well as show you what to expect as you go through the process of learning to shoot.  We cover all the essentials a step at a time.  No previous firearms experience is required to get started.

The next step is to sign up for a training class

Visit our Training Classes page to find one convenient for you.  You can search the listings any number of ways—for example by city, state, instructor name, or shooting range.

Not quite ready to sign up for a class?

Then we hope you'll consider subscribing to our email list.  That way you can stay informed about future classes that may be of interest to you.

It's important to get professional instruction

Professional instruction is essential when learning to shoot.  Please don't attempt to learn to shoot on your own.  Safety is the paramount issue—and hands-on safety training is all-important.  Use our Instructors page to find someone who can help you learn to shoot safely.

Learn to defend yourself and your family—that is your right!

By learning to shoot skillfully and safely, you gain greater confidence in defending yourself and your family in today's dangerous urban environments. We believe that owning and using firearms is your right as an American, guaranteed by our Constitution.  We hope you will join us in exercising it.

We believe in Practice—Practice—Practice!

Practice is essential to maintain your shooting skills. You need to practice shooting your gun at least once a month at a shooting range. Going to the range with your friends is a fun and rewarding way to practice. Look through our Shooting Range page to find one near you.
