Children's Firearm Classes

Stoneridge Tactical Academy has classes for all ages of children from 8 years old through 15 years of age.  Children need the same education in firearms that adults require.  We have created several classes for kids from beginning firearm safety with emphasis on safety discussions all the way through shooting and tactical classes.  Whatever your idea is for your child, we can accommodate you.  There are 3 class choices.  Please scroll down until you find the class you seek.

Kid's Gun Safety Classes


At Stoneridge, we have professional firearms instructors that know what kids like!  Teaching our children correctly is of utmost importance.  The primary cause of children misusing firearms is the mystique surrounding firearms, parents sheltering children from learning about firearms, and the children's resulting unfamiliarity and curiosity with  firearms.  We have learned to safely remove the mystery from this subject which allows children of all ages to become familiar with and be able to put firearms in perspective as a "tool" rather than an unapproachable, mysterious thing that they are never to handle.  Handguns as well as rifles will be discussed and handled.  Certificates of Course Completion will be issued to all students.  This class satisfies ORS 166.291(1)(f)(c) for Concealed Handgun Certification.  In the "NO-SHOOT" classes, for an additional $25, even accompanying parents of each child may elect to obtain their own certification of completion to be used to satisfy the Oregon State requirement for Oregon CHL licensure.  This means that children may save their certificate until they are of the age of consent and apply for their concealed handgun license with this certificate.


Children must be accompanied by an adult.

(NOTE: This is a "Beginner NO SHOOT" class designed especially for kids 8-15 years of age.  Perfect for parents that want their kids to learn from an NRA-Certified Firearms Instructor

LOCATION: Central Point Campus

COST: $25

A certificate that satisfies Oregon Revised Statute 166.291(1)(f)(c) for Oregon CHL will be given to each child and each paid adult chaperone
