ADTA Fast-Track training Program

Are YOu Trained or Untrained, that is the question...  

We're here to help you get trained.

Learn to shoot with ADTA's New Shooter 101 Fast-Track Training Program.

Our Fast-Track Training Program is designed for beginners with no previous firearms knowledge.  You are welcome even if you have never fired a gun. 

Here's how it works:

  1. Attend one of our Public Workshop events. They all begin with an introduction to our Fast-Track training program.  In this presentation you'll get to handle one of the laser training pistols we use for training beginners.  Click here for our event schedule. 

  2. Join ADTA, which qualifies you to begin the Fast-Track program.  Click here to learn about joining.

  3. Get paired up with an ADTA Mentor.  Mentors are ADTA members who help beginners learn to shoot. They are specially trained to help new shooters select their first firearms and become comfortable shooting them.  Click here to meet some of our Mentors.

  4. Watch our Core Concept Videos – they'll help you learn the basics of handgun safety and operation.  Click here to watch our videos.

  5. Attend our Live-Fire Training events at the shooting range.  You'll start shooting right away using a laser training pistol.  Then when you're ready, you'll graduate to an actual handgun.  Click here for our event schedule. 

  6. Earn your Safe Shooter Certification by completing a checklist of basic skills.  Then you get your first star on your membership badge.  Click here to learn more about certifications.
We encourage you to join ADTA and attend our Live-Fire Training Events.  This is where you put your training to practical use – shooting in an open bay – the kind of training  you cannot get on your own shooting in target lanes.
