This is your Nebraska connection for concealed handgun permit training, hunter safety education, NRA instructor courses, and a broad spectrum of firearm classes. The Nebraska Shooters Training Academy is unique in its versatile design which allows a wide range of training opportunities that cannot be accommodated at most public ranges. We strive to create a comfortable and safe environment which is conducive to develop the knowledge, skills and attitude to safely perform the skills required for anything from basic firearm to more advanced tactical training.
We are excited to announce that we have John Farnam coming to teach a Defensive Handgun class in May of 2018 so be sure to reserve your spot ASAP.
We also have Massad Ayoob coming back On May 31st to teach a MAG-40 course. We are hoping to see a lot of return students and many new ones as well. Please check out the calendar for more information.
We offer a robust assortment of firearm courses including:
Nebraska Concealed Handgun Training
All of our certified instructors teach from the Nebraska Shooters approved lesson plan which has been refined through hundreds of classes to make it easy to understand and very informative. We are certain that a new shooter can keep up and the veteran shooters will still learn some valuable information as well. Our classes are guaranteed to fulfill the requirements set forth by the Nebraska State Patrol.

Practical Pistol (5 levels) We are proud to present our new Practical Pistol series this year. These are classes designed to suit the needs of busy people who don't want to dedicate a whole day at a time to training. They range from getting started with your handgun to advanced practical and tactical applications that you won't likely be able to practice on any public range. Each module is only 4-6 hours and priced accordingly. They are focused on getting as much trigger time as possible.
Concealed Carry Workshops This is a full day of practical application of the important techniques and some educational demonstrations to help you better understand the abilities of the handgun and modern ammunition.
Handgun Skill Builder Class works with some of the basic fundamentals of drawing and firing your handgun in a timely manner and reinforces the proper techniques to safely and effectively use your firearm.
The fundamentals of Pistol Shooting class concentrates on the proper techniques to build accuracy and techniques to prepare for a defensive encounter.
Our force on force course allows you to utilize simulated firearms to experience the success and consequences of making good decisions while carrying a firearm.
Fund Raiser Events & Fun Days at the Range
We host many fund raisers for worthy causes as well as private range days and private lessons.
NRA/Winchester Challenge Hosting
We provide the guidance and materials to complete the NRA/Winchester Marksmanship Program. This is a great opportunity to work your way through the official ranks to become a Distinguished Expert in the Pistol, Defensive Pistol 1, Defensive Pistol 2 and Bullseye categories. It is a lot of fun and pushes you to become more consistent and master the art of good marksmanship.
What's New In 2017?
We have trimmed our prices a bit this year and in some areas we have trimmed them significantly for those who prefer to pack their own lunch and receive a digital copy ofthe book. This year we are including the perks and offering discounts for pairs and groups as well as the usual military discounts. For more info please go to the Discount page.
We also plan to host a weekly supervised Winchester Challenge throughout the summer which will be a great opportunity for our Basic Pistol Graduates to earn their marksmanship certificates at their own pace.
If there is enough interest we plan to organize another trip to Front Sight for the Diamond Members and then another trip in January during the Shot Show event in Vegas. We all thoroughly enjoyed our trip last January and we highly recommend the 4 day defensive pistol course for anyone wanting to bring your proficiency to the next level. For a detailed account of the excursion go to our Front Sight page. If any of our students would like to become lifetime members of Front Sight ask us about our special rate that will allow you to take any of their classes any time for the rest of your life.
We recently became a distributor for the L.A.S.R training system and we are working on integrating it into our training. This will help shooters gain some valuable trigger time in an environment where we can coach and troubleshoot more effectively. If you'd like to purchase one of these systems for yourself you can save 10% by entering NS10 as the coupon code. (L.A.S.R. is a Nebraska based company so it's always good to support your neighbors.)
Not only are we offering the Nebraska Concealed Carry classes on a regular basis, but we also have a broad spectrum of additional opportunities to learn new skills.
In March we are offering an NRA Pistol Instructor Course scheduled for the 18th and 19th. We also have the annual VFW shootout on April 2nd.
We are fortunate enough to get Massad Ayoob to come teach a MAG-40 class in June of 2017 so make sure to save your spot.
We also have Andrew Branca coming in August to teach his Law of Self Defense course in August.
You can sign up for any of these courses on our event manager system. Please let us know if you have any trouble using it.
We are hoping to get a blog started on this site where our students will have the opportunity to submit articles and have them published on our website. We have many students who are passionate about the second amendment and firearms so please feel free to submit an article. We'd like the articles to be informative with an original perspective so give it some thought.
We would also love to have some pictures of some of the trophies our hunter education students have taken. If we can get a few gathered we can start a gallery to motivate the others to get out there and hunt harder.
We also offer a free refresher concealed carry course for anyone holding a valid Nebraska concealed carry permit. Even if you took your class from one of the other instructors in the industry like 88 Tactical, Safe firearm training, Chris Zeeb, Bruce Schwartz, Mike Mettscher, Midwest Firearm Training, DE Guns, Cody Blocker, or any of the hundreds of other choices, you are welcome to refresh your memory and get caught up on any changes in the law.
