Gun Safety Courses at Our Shooting Range

Liberty Firearms Institute is a shooting range in Johnstown dedicated to bringing gun safety knowledge to gun enthusiasts and novices alike. We take gun safety and ownership very seriously, and we are passionate about sharing this knowledge with everyone. We strongly believe that gun ownership is a right and we are equally passionate about treating that right with respect. We do this by offering shooting classes that teach gun owners the skills and safety precautions that surround all firearms. Our shooting range offers a variety of shooting classes, from scoped rifle training where you’ll gain knowledge in the fundamentals and skills of using a scoped rifle, to first aid courses that teach you the basics in acting as a first responder to a gunshot wound. We believe that offering a full spectrum of gun safety courses gives our students the opportunity to have the most knowledge in any firearm situation. Take a look at the shooting classes we have available for all levels of shooters.
