NRA appointed Training Counselor; NRA certified Instructor; NRA Chief Range Safety Officer


Whether you are taking a class as a complete beginner, or an experienced, highly competent shooter seeking an NRA Instructor certification, ScotShot classes are comfortable, friendly and taught with a high instructor-to-student ratio.

Safety is the most important concept in firearms training and use. Whether we are teaching NRA classes, or our own classes, teaching offered by ScotShot instill the three core concepts - Knowledge, Skills and Attitude - that keep our students safe, confident and having fun after they leave our class.

We focus on the three NRA Rules for Safe Gun Handling:

  • ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction;
  • ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot;
  • ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use;
Because we weave these three rules into everything we do, our students do too and as a result, can go to the range for the first time by themselves and shoot confidently and responsibly.

All those teaching with ScotShot LLC hold the Nationally-Recognized NRA teaching certifications at either Instructor or Training Counsellor levels, and most are also either NRA Range Safety Officers or Chief Range Safety Officers. We have received many hours of training and have taught many students. Our purpose is to launch you, the firearms student, safely on your new interest in firearms and the shooting sports, and support you however you'd like and for as long as you want.

Being able to shoot is a great life-skill. Whether for you it's a sport or a tool for protection of your family and yourself, you'll find in shooting a community of people who are calm, caring and constructive.
