After acquiring my first hand gun, I went to Blackstone to try it out. They were very pleased to show me everything I needed to safely operate the gun. A special shout-out to James for his time and patience. Became a member and scheduled a concealed Cary class this weekend. Looking forward to more practice at Blackstone!

I’ve been a member for a few years now and recently was able to join their steel target shooting event. Stephen and Eric were great tutors, their empathy, enthusiasm, clear communication and knowledge made a huge difference. Furthermore, the engaging personality and best practices shared by the Team turned this event basically into a private class on how to become a better shooter, plus all the fun of these types of courses.
