Children's Firearm Classes

Stoneridge Tactical Academy has classes for all ages of children from 8 years old through 17 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.

Kid's Gun Safety Classes - $25 (Please scroll to the bottom for the "live-fire" course)

 

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.

INDOOR "LIVE-FIRE" CLASS - A GREAT OPTION!

CLASS TITLE: KID'S INDOOR LIVE-FIRE HANDGUN SHOOTING & SAFETY

CLASS COST: $75

Our indoor kid's shooting classes are taught by NRA-Certified Advanced Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors.  Shooting exercises will be overseen and monitored by a Certified Chief Range Safety Officer.  This gives children the perfect opportunity to learn to shoot in a safe indoor venue with professional instructors where safety is paramount.  This class is perfect for the beginning shooter or the child that already has a firm foundation of basic handgun safety principles in theory and action taught at home.

Stay WARM during winter months and cool during summer!  The indoor facility is the only one like it in the Pacific Northwest.  Our law enforcement training firearms don't have the heavy recoil that occurs with lethal, ballistic ammunition!  Special firearms provide with the ammunition for students who want an All-Inclusive course, are law enforcement certified, low-recoil, "non-lethal" firearms and ammo suitable for indoor use.  We are the ONLY school in the Pacific Northwest licensed to teach Simunition courses.  Stoneridge Tactical has received authorization from local law enforcement to offer this course indoors inside city limits.  This exceptional kid's course is definitely one you want to be part of. 

Except for the non-lethal, live-fire handguns  and special ammunition provided to all students as part of the course, this course is identical to any outdoor range course.  All curriculum is taught by Advanced Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors.  The Instructor is a former law enforcement Field Training Officer and is certified by the Nathional Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors Association.  Because these firearms use a specialized, high-tech, low-energy, low-recoil ammunition and corresponding specialized firearms, the cost is somewhat higher than the other kid's handgun courses.  This course is great for students that have a higher-anxiety level when dealing with handguns.  Your child will feel right at home and comfortable with our stock of non-lethal firearms and ammunition.  No sore hands, overwhelming shock, muzzle flash, or tremendous noise like ballistic, lethal firearms have.

In this class, located at the Stoneridge Tactical training facility in Central Point, kids will learn to safely handle and shoot handguns.  This kid's shooting class is 3 hours in length and will include classroom safety instruction and review as well as live-fire range time.  By the end of the class, children will shoot safer and more accurately, while maintaining handgun safety as they learn to handle, manipulate, load, unload, and fire their handgun. 

Parents of students are encouraged to bring a handgun for their children to use during the classroom instruction portion but will not use that firearm during the live-fire activities.  All ammunition is included in the cost of the class (parents are NOT to provide ammo for their child.  All firearms and magazines brought into the classroom are to be completely unloaded and clear of all ammunition.  Keep all live ammunition out of the classroom please).

"Shooting Certificates of Course Completion" will be awarded to all attendees.  "Parent-Certificates" not available in this course.
