Who we are

We are the educational arm of the Four Corners Rod and Gun Club. We offer a wide variety of gun training opportunities for everyone. Regardless of your interests or your level of expertise, there is a class for you. Also immediate and direct access to the shooting center further aids in the learning experience and helps to complement and complete your training. Our instructors are all NRA Certified and our classes meet Oregon’s Requirement for a CHL. Check the calendar for upcoming events. All of our shooting events and educational programs are open to the public.

What we offer

Quality firearm training under the supervision of NRA Certified instructors.
Courses include the following:

  • NRA Basic Pistol Instructor Led
  • NRA Defensive Pistol
  • NRA Refuse to be a Victim
  • NRA CCW (concealed handgun)
  • NRA Basic Rifle
  • And many more….

Many of our courses offer hands on, live fire training.  This is an extra benefit over courses offered at other locations or classes taught at stores.  

Whether you’re taking the course for personal protection or a CHL, then make sure you’re protecting yourself not only physically, but by learning the legal ramifications, which we cover in some trainings as well. This knowledge is crucial if you ever find yourself faced with having to exercise your right to defend yourself.

Defensive Shotgun Workshop

Sunday, June 4, 2023, 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

This popular workshop is returning for the summer.  Many gun owners trust a shotgun as a home defense tool with good reason.  But few have the opportunity to practice or train with its use.  This workshop provides both, training under the guidance of instructors versed in defensive shotgun use and tactics and plenty of opportunities to practice with your shotgun and defensive encounters distances.  You will also be able to pattern buckshot at typical distances during a defensive in life in your home encounter to see what it looks like with your gun and your ammunition (hint, they are like snowflakes, and what you see on the internet will likely not be how your gun/ammunition combination performs).

Topics for the workshop include safety, setting up your shotgun for home defense use, different action types, use of different sighting systems, ammunition selection, multiple threats, and many other topics.  Your instructor crew includes graduates of a variety of related coursework including Tom Givens/Rangemaster Defensive Shotgun Instructor Course, Thunder Ranch, Gunsite Academy along with having a practical application of deploying shotguns in law enforcement.  We designed this course to increase the confidence of shooters who rely on this effective firearm; one that is safest and most effective in trained hands.  


The cost of the workshop is $40 for club members and $50 for guests.  To sign up contact will at or (909) 816-8821.

Junior Shooters Compete in Junior Olympic State Championships

Two shooters from the Colonel Allison Junior Rifle Club competed in the Junior Olympic State Championship at Tri-County gun club over the weekend of March 13th and 14th.  Both air rifle and .22 were shot over the two days.  In air rifle Kenzi shot a personal best 97 on the second target.  To provide some perspective, take a look at the target to the right.  The bullseye is not a circle, it is a dot!  This is shot a 10m (33 feet) and takes and amazing amount of concentration.  Fellow shooter Will posted solid scores as well (note the electronic scoring on the left).  Congrats to the CAJRC team!
