About Us

The Academy at Georgia Gun Club was founded in 2011. Our headquarters and classrooms are located in Buford, Georgia. Our instructors are experienced, agency certified civilians trained to offer nationally recognized curriculums in personal protection and safety to civilians. Our goal is to provide self-protection training for law-abiding citizens of all ages. The scope of training ranges from general civilian awareness and security to non-lethal methods of self-protection to firearm competency and safety. We offer all the training tools utilized by law enforcement and military but applied with the specific needs, philosophy and legal constraints of civilian safety and self-defense.

The National Rifle Association’s firearm safety and competence courses are the backbone of our curriculum. This firearm training spans the various firearm action types and sizes with focused courses available for your specific firearm as well.

We also offer firearm safety training specific to the hunting industry. These courses, designed by the NRA and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, provide the hunting community with the training required to hunt in Georgia. This training is very broad based including not only firearm safety but also public relations, hunting ethics and game management.
