There’s a new, modern, and remote way to sharpen your skills with a firearm. And with the massive uptick in new gun owners from the previous year, it could not come at a better time.
During 2020, Covid-19 and civil unrest throughout our country sent a wave of people to become first-time gun owners. According to the NSSF, at least 5 million people bought a firearm for the very first time. Many of those people didn’t feel comfortable going out to the shooting range to get the safety training and gun skills they needed, if they were in a high-risk category for developing complications from the virus. That’s why Roger Brooking came up with the perfect solution with the Self Defense Shooting Academy.
Let’s look at what this innovative new business does and how you can get more shooting training virtually if you need it.
Firearms Training Done Remotely
Want to learn how to shoot remotely from the comfort of your own home? You can do that with the Self Defense Shooting Academy. In these classes, they utilize the method of “dry firing.” This can be a very safe practice that is done without any ammunition in your firearm. Of course, Roger does recommend that when you are ready to come to the academy to take classes in person, but having basic lessons online with an instructor in real time will definitely make you more comfortable with your firearm. The feedback and instruction from a live instructor is what makes these classes more valuable than just watching any old video or class online.
A Roster of Helpful Classes
Classes cover everything from learning which type of firearm to buy, and how to properly use them when the need arises. Then they go deeper into home defense, practical shooting techniques, and general gear and ammunition knowledge that goes with gun ownership. These are comprehensive and hands-on courses that you can take in your living room. So no matter where you live, you are going to get top-notch training and gun education from instructors who have some pretty impressive credentials. Every instructor has over ten years working in the industry and some kind of military experience.
In Person Classes
If you live in the New Jersey area, you can always visit the Self Defense Shooting Academy in person. They have courses for new gun owners and more high-level experience ones like their tactical rifle or advanced handgun courses.
The entire mission of the academy is their motto, “we turn gun owners into protectors.” Of course the academy itself isn’t new. They have been around since 2006, but their virtual classes are newly recent as of 2020 thanks to the coronavirus.
Contact the Self Defense Shooting Academy to get trained virtually at-home. This is especially vital if you are a first-time gun owner and don’t have any practical experience shooting a firearm.The virtual training isn’t meant to completely take the place of in-person training, but at least it will get you started on the road to understanding how and when you need to use your weapon for self-defense.
