American Firearms Instruction was started to offer the public and new firearms owners, or those considering purchasing firearms, the ability to learn how to own, use and store firearms safely and to advocate for the 2nd Amendment and the right of the people to keep and bear arms. We strive for honesty, loyalty, integrity and professionalism from our students and instructors. We strongly advocate for the Conservation of wildlife and wildlife habitat in the United States. We empower individuals with the confidence to keep themselves and their families safe.

Upcoming Events


We have finally been able to qualify Retired Police Officers and Civilian Concealed Carry Permit. We have been qualifying students for a little over a month.  These classas/courses are taught on a one-on-one basis. Scheduling is done through our website. Once all related registration forms have been submitted, our instructor’s will then contact students to schedule the qualifications.  We do require that all of our students attend and pass at a minimum of the NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting-Instructor Led Only Course prior to taking our Concealed Carry Course, All students taking the Concealed Carry Course are required to take a 20 Minute Use of Force Informational Class and pass a Use of force test and score  hundred percent on the test.  Students are also required to qualify with a holster that is designed for the firearm that they are qualifying with. We hope to be able to offer more classes as long as there is demand for them.  If anyone has any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at your convenience. Please be well and safe.
