Private Pistol Shooting Lessons

Take a short survey and send us some feedback — your help is appreciated.

Insight Defense Concepts offers personalized private lessons for those wanting to improve the skills they have gained from the NRA basic pistol course or similar firearms safety course. The private lessons are taught by a qualified NRA firearms instructor and range safety officer. Firearms safety and muzzle awareness is always paramount during your lesson. These lessons will strengthen skills you have already learned and also address more advanced skills not covered in a basic pistol class.

These lessons may cover:

  • Hold control
  • Sight picture
  • Sight alignment
  • Natural aiming area
  • Trigger control
  • Point shooting
  • Shooting positions
  • Shooting stance
  • Pistol manipulation ergonomics

Private pistol lessons are taught in one hour increments, but will occasionally last longer if necessary to complete the lesson. The student should allow for one and one half hours of time. Lessons can be booked according to availability, and we would ideally aim to meet weekly. Lessons must be taken within six months from the time of purchase.

We must be notified of cancellations within 24 hours of the scheduled lesson.

The cost of lessons are as follows:

Number of lessons Total cost
One Lesson $75.00
Five Lessons $325.00
Ten Lessons $500.00

Note that group discounts are available so if you want to attend with one or more friends, contact us and we’ll discuss matters further.

A discount is also available for students who have taken a class with us, so please inquire with us for more details.

If you take a single lesson, you may roll the cost of this lesson into a larger package as long as this is done within 30 days of the day that you attend your session — for example, a student pays $75 for a single lesson and later decides he/she would like to take ten lessons — at this point only $425 would be due and they would receive nine extra lessons.

This also applies to customers who would like to extend their five-session package into a ten session package; in this example the student has already paid $325, so only $175 would be due and they would receive five extra lessons. In this case the student has 30 days from the last lesson in which they can decide to extend their package.

What you need to provide

  • The student’s range fee is not included in the lesson fee.
  • You will need to bring your own firearm or rent one at the range.
  • One hundred fifty rounds of factory ammunition
  • Eye protection
  • Ear protection


Typically the lessons will be taught at:
14363 Archer Ave.
Lockport, Illinois.
