    I love working with the Shoot Smart team! The employees there are friendly and very knowledgeable. They are always willing to help :-). Joe, the instructor is outstanding! He has taught me to think outside of the box when it comes to self-defense shooting as well as home defense. Joe takes his time to instruct you to make you feel comfortable and yet ready to defend you or your family at the same time.

    Joe is not only a great teacher and a wealth of knowledge about firearms and self defense, he is very patient and a great listener. I am very fortunate to be his client.

  • Michael Schwarz

    Joe is a knowledgeable instructor, who knows how to explain and teach. He’s not only helped me improve my skills, but, as importantly, he’s able to discuss various scenarios and talk about the whys, and what-ifs. Shoot Smart is family friendly and welcomes beginners, novices and experienced shooters. We all have things to learn! Professional staff, and a welcoming environment. Not the least bit intimidating.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

New students are introduced to firearm safety, function and operation of a semi-automatic firearm, and marksmanship fundamentals. Then students are taken into the gun range and assisted in proper shooting techniques.
