Hi! We’re American Firearms Instruction LLC.
American Firearms Instruction was formulated in 2015 and Incorporated in 2016 in response to Thomas J. Wilson taking a Range Safety Officer Course followed by Home Firearms Safety Instructor Classes offered by the Phillipsburg Pistol Club.
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 also strongly advocate for the Conservation of wildlife and wildlife habitat in the United States.
With the rise in firearms purchases within the last few years in the United States, there needs to be credible and professional firearm safety course offered to those new firearms owners. All instructors are taught and certified by the National Rifle Association.
Our first Home Firearms Safety Course was taught on September 17, 2017 with great success. We plan to offer many classes in the future such as Defensive Pistol, Basic Rifle, Basic Shotgun, Refuse to be a Victim, Personal Protection in the home, Personal Protection outside the home, once our instructors receive instructor certifications in those disciplines. We also hope to offer Hunter Education Courses held in conjunction with the State of New Jersey.
Our goal is to instruct, promote and educate anyone in the public and/or new shooters about proper and safe handling of firearms, use and storage firearms for sport, personal defense, competition, hunting and to exercise and protection of their Second Amendment Rights. We also strive to promote and educate anyone interested in firearms with honesty, pride, honor, courage, loyalty, respect, professionalism, a positive attitude and integrity regarding firearms and use of firearms. We advocate and promote the 2nd Amendment and the right of the people to keep and bear arms. We also strive to educate those who want to learn the joy of firearms for sport without the negativity that most people associate with firearms. We believe in all inclusiveness for firearms and firearms safety first and foremost. Advocate for the 2nd Amendment and the right of the people to keep and bear arms. We advocate for the Conservation of wildlife and wildlife habitat in the United States. We are an all inclusive business that believes that all are entitled to firearms and firearms training.
