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, December 4, 2022 / 8:00am - 1:00pm
This popular workshop is returning in December. If you would like to learn how to more effectively use a shotgun for home defense and have the opportunity to practice this is the class. The session will include loading (and unloading) including tactical reloads, shooting skills and drills at typical home defense distances, patterning your shotgun so you know the spread of the pattern in your gun with your ammunition, movement, ready positions and many other topics. The cost is $40 for club membes and $50 for non-members. Contact Will for additional information
NRA CCW (Concealed Handgun) Course
Watch for courses in 2023
Four Corners Gun Club is hosting an NRA CCW, concealed handgun class in 2023. 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. The cost of the class is $100, $80 for FCGC members. Please contact Will with any questions or for additional 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!
