Firearms Training

At Basalt Firearms, we want to do everything we can to ensure that every gun enthusiast has not only the right equipment, but also the knowledge needed to be safe in the enjoyment of the use of firearms. 

To that end, we offer a variety of classes to help you meet your needs and goals, from classes that provide an introduction for first timers to the safe handling of guns, to training for a concealed carry permit, to advanced techniques for experienced gun owners. If you have specific interests and needs, our NRA-certified instructors can also tailor a private individual or group lesson to suit them. 

Ladies, if you're looking to become more familiar with firearms in a comfortable setting targeted at your interests and needs, we offer women-only instruction as well, headed by NRA-certified instructor Lyn Bair.
