What is the first class I should take if I’m new to shooting?
It depends on your needs, but, typically, we recommend Colorado Concealed Carry (CCW)-The Basics to learn the basics in the classroom, and practice on the range. Intro to Firearms: Fundamentals of Firearm Safety is also a good option that covers proper handling and firearm information, with no range time.

You will need to bring your own eye and ear protection, or purchase them at Magnum Shooting Center, if your class includes range time.
What are your age requirements for classes?

Additionally, if the minor will be shooting on the range, a parent or legal guardian must be present to sign the Waiver, Release, and Indemnity Agreement, and Range Rules Agreement. However, the parent/legal guardian may not be required to stay with the minor shooter during all of the classes.
Do I need formal training if I’ve been shooting for years?
Our instructors are highly trained, and could help you expand your skills, or see potential bad habits/adjustments that you’ve grown accustomed to. We have numerous advanced training options available for you to practice in new ways or hone your technique. There’s always something new to learn!
