Instruction

We offer instruction in a wide range of outdoor activities by certified and highly knowledgeable instructors.  All instructors are supportive, patient, encouraging, and are in tune to their students’ needs. We strive to take the anxiety and stress out of both the subject and learning process. One of our greatest strengths is working with those that are new to firearms in a safe and pressure free environment.
 
MGO is known for our female only classes as well as our classes for couples.  We also offer some co-ed classes; however, we have found that classes with only females tends to be less intimidating and most women prefer to learn with other women with the same experience level which provides a more social atmosphere. Our couples’ classes help to set up a support system at home even when they leave class and eliminate the challenge of one partner instructing the other. 
 
Check our CALENDAR to see if we are offering something that interests you.
If you have a special request or see something that you would like to take but can’t fit into your schedule, please let us know through our CONTACT page.  We offer flexible scheduling and will work with you to fit what you want into your busy schedule by offering classes during the day, nights, and weekends and will break classes into multiple sessions. We will also travel to you.  Let us know how we can accommodate you.  For online payment, you can pay through our SHOP page.

  • Orientation Courses are predominately classroom courses for those with little or no experience in that skill and want to start out slow or "get their feet wet".  Some in class hands-on participation should be expected, however, it will be minimal.  These will run 2-4 hours depending on the subject.

  • Basic Courses are more informative and slightly more advanced than Orientation Courses. These too are for those with little or no experience in that skill and want to start out slow or "get their feet wet".  All will include in class hands-on participation.  These will run 4-6 hours depending on the subject.

  • Intermediate and Advanced Course are predominately hands-on courses for those with experience in that skill and want to further their experience while fellowshipping and having fun with like-minded women.  Advanced Courses will be more of a "guided" course.  Some in class participation should be expected, however, it will be minimal.  There also may be requirements such as pre-requisite classes or skill verification.  These will run 2 hours to full weekends (or multiple days) depending on the subject.

  • NRA Courses will differ in in-class time, hands-on time, previous experience or prerequisites, total time and materials required by subject.
