As anyone who has been serious about firearms for any length of time will tell you, the first “skill” you must learn is the skill of Safety. At Centennial Gun Club, we are adamant that there is nothing to fear in the world of shooting sports, so long as Safety is a priority. Our courses will work with shooters of all skill levels and help them increase their level of safety awareness, whether at home, on the range, or in the field.

We all love to shoot, but it is far more fun to be able to shoot accurately. Centennial Gun Club offers some fantastic courses that strive to help you become more accurate in a variety of shooting scenarios.

The growing interest in firearms and popularity of shooting sports has generated a need for more instructors. If you are interested in joining the ranks of teachers and instructors, including becoming a Range Safety Officer (RSO), Centennial Gun Club frequently offers courses from the NRA that will help you achieve your goal.

When Centennial Gun Club was founded, we set out with the purposeful intent of making a “female-friendly” club. We are proud to have made good on that promise, and to be a preferred facility for training and equipping women from all walks of life. There are certain courses that work quite well when provided with a women’s focus. We have found that the focus, goals and pacing of the class (and range) time are far more effective for all class attendees. We are proud to offer these classes, and will be adding more women-focused classes in the future.

Able Shepherd is an elite level, self-defense training program developed and directed by veteran Navy Seal, Jimmy Graham.

It is designed to make you and those around you safer.
