private firearms training

Are you someone who prefers one-on-one learning over a group class setting? Do you want to gain confidence and proficiency in firearms handling and marksmanship at your own pace? If so, our private firearms training sessions are crafted just for you. In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of private firearms training and how it can provide you with a personalized, safe, and effective learning experience.

Personalized Private Firearms Training Tailored to Your Goals

Private firearms training offers a unique advantage over group classes – personalized instruction. Each private session at Main Line Armory lasts approximately one-and-a-half hours, allowing you to delve deep into the world of firearms without the distractions and limitations of a larger class setting. With the undivided attention of a highly certified instructor, you’ll receive instruction that’s tailored to meet your specific goals and needs.

Whether you’re a complete novice or an experienced shooter looking to refine your skills, your private session can be customized to your level of expertise. If you’re new to firearms, the training will focus on the foundational elements of firearms safety and operation. You’ll be guided through each component of a firearm, from the basics of safe handling practices to the fundamentals of shooting. This step-by-step approach ensures that you build a strong foundation of knowledge and skills, setting you up for success in your firearms journey.

Highly Certified Instructors

These instructors are passionate about firearms education and are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. They will adapt to your learning style, provide constructive feedback, and guide you through every step of the process. Whether you’re looking to become a proficient self-defense shooter, a competitive marksman, or simply a responsible firearm owner, our instructors have the expertise to support your journey.

A Comfortable Learning Environment

One of the key advantages of private firearms training is the comfortable learning environment it offers. Learning to handle firearms can be intimidating, especially if you’re new to the world of firearms. In a private session, you won’t have to worry about feeling rushed or self-conscious in front of a group of peers. Instead, you’ll have the opportunity to learn at your own pace, ask questions, and seek clarification without hesitation.

Furthermore, the one-on-one setting allows you to build a rapport with your instructor, fostering open communication and trust. This relationship can significantly enhance your learning experience, as you’ll feel more comfortable sharing your concerns, fears, or uncertainties. Your instructor will be invested in your educational journey and can adapt the training to address your specific needs and preferences.

Balanced Curriculum of Classroom Instruction and Range Time

Our private firearms training sessions are designed to strike a balance between classroom instruction and hands-on range time. This approach ensures that you not only understand the theoretical aspects of firearms but also gain practical experience to reinforce your knowledge.

During the classroom portion of the session, you’ll receive comprehensive instruction on various topics, including:

Firearms safety

Understanding the fundamental rules of safe firearms handling is paramount. You’ll learn how to treat every firearm as if it’s loaded, keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction, keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to shoot, and be aware of your target and what lies beyond it.

Firearms components 

You’ll be introduced to the different parts of a firearm, helping you gain a clear understanding of how it functions.


Learn about various types of ammunition, caliber, and how to load and unload a firearm safely.

Marksmanship fundamentals

Dive into the art of accurate shooting. This includes stance, grip, sight alignment, trigger control, and follow-through.

On The Range

After the classroom instruction, it’s time for hands-on range time. This is where you put your newly acquired knowledge into practice. Under the watchful eye of your instructor, you’ll have the opportunity to fire live rounds, refine your shooting skills, and receive immediate feedback and guidance to improve your marksmanship.
