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.

NRA CCW (Concealed Handgun) Course
Saturday, February 5th & Sunday morning, February 6th
Four Corners Gun Club is hosting an NRA CCW, concealed handgun class in February. This workshop goes beyond the basics of most CHL or concealed handgun license classes, so even if you are a current CHL permit holder you still may want to consider the course. Topics include firearm safety, defensive handgun skills, clearing malfunctions and reloading, carry modes / drawing from concealment and mindset for the concealed carry lifestyle. In addition, there is a shooting portion for this class that follows the NRA curriculum. Students passing the workshop will be able to show they completed coursework in these areas and passed a standardized firearms qualification.
This is an extensive class so if you are seeking the easy road to a CHL permit, this might not be your best option. However, if you desire a deeper understanding of the above topics while learning in a small group (eight students maximum) this may be the class for you. Saturday will consist of classroom and skill building with Sunday morning on the range. Please feel free to contact us for additional details by emailing HERE. To sign up for the class on the NRA website click HERE. The cost of the class is $100, $80 for members (and associate members) of Four Corners Rod & Gun Club.
NRA First Steps Semiautomatic Handgun Course
Dates will be posted soon (March 2022)
The Educational Foundation of the Four Corners Gun Club is planning workshops intended help introduce newer shooters on how to safely operate a semiautomatic handgun. This training combines classroom and range time, along with plenty of opportunities for questions, to help lead shooters into becoming more comfortable operating pistols. The cost of the class is $50. Shooters who do not yet own a handgun can use one for $10, including ammunition. This class is open to members and non-members so if you have any family, friends or co-workers who would benefit from the course please feel free to pass along the information.
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!
