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.

NRA Classes


NRA Basic Pistol - One day including live fire / Saturday, January 30, 2021 (Currently Full, please contact us for waitlist information)

NRA CCW (Concealed Handgun) - Classroom & Range / Saturday, March 6 & 7, 2021  SIGN UP HERE


Four Corners Gun Club is hosting an NRA CCW, concealed handgun class in March.  This is a relatively new program from the NRA with a modular format allowing for specific skills to be covered in the session. 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. 

 

The class will be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 6th & 7th, 2021.  Based on the subjects included the class will begin at 8:30am on Saturday, going until about 5:00pm with range time on Sunday from 8:00am – noon.  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 (six students maximum) this may be the class for you. 

 

We are seeking to fill this class with Four Corners Gun Club members first.  The discount cost is $80 (all money benefits the Education Foundation) with a $40 deposit required to hold you place.  The cost for non-members is $100.  Contact Will by clicking HERE for more details .
