Firearms require training to be used safely and responsibly, not only for sporting purposes but also  for personal protection and home defense. New Jersey Personal Defense Academy offers a variety of firearms training opportunities for owners of all skill levels. We teach the following disciplines, all in an immersive, non-competitive atmosphere; our goal is for all students to use their firearms properly and confidently.

Our skilled and experienced instructors guide students step-by-step through the “learning to proficiency” process. Whether you are taking one of the official National Rifle Association (NRA) courses, private lessons or our own NJPDA “Confidence” courses, we make sure you walk away not only with a much better understanding and appreciation for the firearm of your choice, but also having a great time in the process!
