At Compass Defense in New Jersey, we train you how to be safe and shoot well from the start. Offering classes in both the NRA and United States Concealed Carry Association curriculums, we help you get comfortable with your first gun and continue your education after that. Women only classes are available as well as coed and we can accommodate private lessons and private group classes.
Our instructors are all certified by the NRA and USCCA and are multi-discipline, giving you a wide choice to help you meet your firearms education goals.
Are you a bit unsure about starting out with a gun? Don't know which gun would be best for you?? We can help guide you through these questions.

There is nothing like having someone come to us that has never shot before, go through one of our classes, and leave with a big smile on their face having shot safely, correctly and successfully . It's wonderful knowing our students leave with the confidence and knowledge to head to a range with their gun and shoot on their own.
Heidi worked one on one with me and was incredibly patient and also assessed quickly what I was doing wrong. She explained in an easy to understand way and helped so much that within the hour I had a really nice grouping that I could be proud of ! Thank you Heidi !
All of our students get significant classroom work before heading onto the range. Even in regular classes, ALL students get one-on-one instruction both in class and on the range. Everyone will know what is expected of them, the elements of gun safety and how to handle, load, unload and present their firearm before firing their first shots so they are very comfortable through the whole process.
All instructors have been certified and instructing for over 4 years. The lead instructor has a background in Law Enforcement and tactical operations and is a certified Instructor in: USCCA Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals, USCCA Women's Defensive Handgun, NRA Pistol Instructor, NRA Rifle Instructor, NRA Chief Range Safety Officer.
