Not sure what sort of info you're looking for Rutgers. The NRA First Steps classes are very basic (more so than even a Basic Rifle) - usually on the order of a few hours long. There will be range time for basic familiarization with firing. First Steps classes are usually very small (four or fewer students, though I'm wondering if this instuctor may have more). The NRA does not have an "AR" class - the First Steps classes usually focus around one action type (i.e. semi-auto rifle). In this case, the instructor has chosen to narrow it down even more, and focus specifically on the AR platform. Hopefully someone here has some experience with this instructor/school. If in doubt, give them a call for more info.

A friend told me about this thread so I registered to answer any questions you may have... I should have registered on here long ago actually. Im one of the instructors giving the AR first steps class. As many of you are aware, there are many new AR owners since the election last november... we decided to run this class because many new owners (and some not so new owners) have no idea how to zero, clean, or even fire them... we've actually seen people with ARs that werent even NJ compliant (bought out of state or altered after purchase). So we decided to run this class for AR owners not too familiar with them. So to give you a rundown... you're going to see about 3 or 4 hours worth of classroom instruction where we talk about the nomenclature, disassembly, cleaning, and legal possible accessories of the AR platform. We will have 4 or 5 of our ARs in the classroom as well and whatever the students bring so you'll have a good number for comparison. After the classroom portion we will have a quick lunch and head to the range for an hour or two where you will shoot your AR with your ammo. Our goal is to have all students loading, unloading, and firing their rifles safely.... and have a proper zero with their ammo before they leave. There will be 2 instructors for the class and a max of 6 students. If you have any more questions, let me know or give Chet in the office a call.

Took this class today with Cameron two other staff and four students. Spent the morning in class going over the basics of the AR-15. Had lunch then a drive to Ft. Dix for shooting and zeroing our ARs.

Had a great time. Learned a lot. Cameron did a great job. I need lots of practice shooting this thing.

Class highly recommended.

Great info. 3 of my friends all bought new AR's so I will definitely let them know about this training course. I got all my training when I was in ROTC and it was great training. Hated the white glove inspections.
