URA Firearms Basic Marksmanship Courses
The Urban Rifle Association offers firearms instruction to the general public (based on our discretion). 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 (booking under construction, "contact us" for booking). 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.
