A Note on Home Lessons: A unique benefit of the Mobile Marksman experience is the home lesson. Many students prefer to learn individually or with the spouse, partner, friends and family in the comfort and security of their own home.  No live ammunition will be used/allowed in this environment.

The Mobile Marksman can teach in your home and at a local range near your home.  Call Russ to discuss this if you are interested. 

"Sit-Ins" - Anyone who is present in our classroom or your home classroom area during the class will be considered a student in the course and charged the course fee.  Please discuss with Mobile Marksman ahead of time if you need to make special accommodations.
