Strong Defense Through Firearms Fundamentals

Take Private Shooting Lessons in Scottsdale, AZ

Private Sessions
Private or Semiprivate Instruction 
These lessons are for students who have little to no experience shooting, want to learn without purchasing a firearm, or need to hone their skills. Students can pick a range of their preference.  Class size is limited to 2 students.  Rates vary from $50/hr to $100/hr per person, based on whether students will be providing their own firearms, want to be provided one, or would like to experience a variety of multiple firearms.  
*This is not an NRA class*

At Center Mass Defense, (although we adhere to strict safety rules), we strive for a relaxed and positive atmosphere. We understand that nervousness leads us to make more mistakes and being uncomfortable can lower drive and desire to learn. A.J. is former military, but realizes the key to instructing is not to tear students down like in the service, but to build them up and transform them into confident and competent shooters.
