URA Firearms Basic Marksmanship Courses


The Urban Rifle Association offers firearms instruction to the general public.  Our instructors are trained and certified by the NRA and have practical/real world experience in law enforcement, combat (Former U.S. Army officers and NCO's), and hunting.  All of our staff are certified Range Safety Officers (RSO's).

We offer three ways for you to learn:  formal classes, private lessons, or personal/buddy training.

Our formal classes are scheduled and can be purchased in the URA Store.  Private lessons are done with an agreed upon schedule between the instructor and student and payment can be made via the URA Store.  Personal/buddy training is done at the convenience of the shooter.

This program is what drives the training for URA members.  Following these courses of fire will take a shooter from a "beginner" to "expert" at the pace of their choosing.  This program gives the shooter solid goals as opposed to just going to the range and shooting at paper targets.  As instructors we don't want our shooters wasting their time and money.
