Community Firearms Training and Other Education Programs

Our Programs

As part of our community advocacy and education, Magen Am provides public firearms training classes, and is working on sponsorship to be able to offer free self-defense classes.

Sunday classes (Pistols 101, 102, and 1) cost $200/participant if you bring your own ammo. If you need Magen Am to provide ammo, there is an additional, flat $75 ammo fee. Please note that we can only provide 9 mm ammo. If you do not have a handgun to use, please let us know when registering, and we will have one available for you to borrow, free of charge.

Private sessions are offered in 2 hour time slots. The cost is $250/hour for instructor time plus $100/participant (this includes ammo for all participants). The cost is totaled and divided by the number of participants for a per person cost. For instance, if 4 people wanted a private session, the cost would be as follows:

$250/hour for 2 hours = $500

$100/participant for 4 participants = $400

Total cost = $900

Cost per participant = $900 divided by 4 people = $225/person

Magen Am is currently working on obtaining funds for training scholarships
