**Due to the Mecklenburg County Shelter-in-Place order, we will be postponing group and private instruction until April 16. Our range and retail facility will be OPEN for business as we are an essential service to the people of Mecklenburg and the surrounding counties. Any lessons scheduled prior to April 16 will be cancelled and a credit will be issued to be redeemed for a class at date after April 16.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding at this time.

Topics of Interest in Our Firearms & Shooting Instruction Classes
Whether you want to learn the basics of how your firearm operates, how to improve your aim or how to defend yourself with your firearm, you'll find classes suited to your specific needs and learning style with us. Our Blackstone Private Training program is designed to provide custom, individualized instruction to both individuals and small groups that's second to none. Some of the most common topics we teach include:
- Introduction to firearms: New to the world of shooting sports? We're here to help you become more comfortable with your firearm through classroom-type instruction and hands-on time at the range.
- Specific firearm focus: Maybe you're interested in learning more about one particular firearm, like the latest pistol or rifle. We can craft our training to be as specific as you'd like to a precise firearm type, configuration or action.
- Specific technique focus: Proper stance, aim and positioning all work together intricately, and even one wrong move can significantly affect your accuracy. We can help you hone your current technique to hit your target every time.
- Self-defense: Dangerous situations are all around us. But with proper preparation, you can stop these events in their tracks. We'll show you how to keep yourself and your loved ones safe with various armed and unarmed self-defense techniques.
- Carrying a concealed weapon: Since concealed carrying a firearm for self-defense is an incredible responsibility, proper training is crucial. Our experts can help you better understand your role as a CCW carrier in keeping the people around you safe. They can also provide the information and range time necessary for you to receive your CCW permit.
- Competition shooting: Whether you're training for your first big competition or your hundredth, you'll always find ways to continually improve as a shooter. Our experts are thoroughly familiar with the world of competition shooting and can provide insider tips to help you excel in the shooting sports.
- Advanced tactical training: Tactical training encompasses several self-defense strategies using both armed and unarmed combat, which makes it ideal for those in the military, law enforcement, security or a related career. That said, the skills used in tactical training can benefit men and women of any age or occupation. We'll show you how to use and apply these skills to a variety of situations.
- Create your own: Firearms, shooting techniques and areas of interests aren't one-size-fits-all — so why should your training be? We'll customize a training program specific to your needs and the learning outcomes you hope to reach from our instruction.
