We love answering your questions about guns, ammo, training, accessories, and pretty much anything else firearm related. At our core, we are an education provider. We just happened to be disguising ourselves as a shooting range and gun store. Our primary occupation is helping people like you learn more about firearms, safety, self-defense, shooting, and whatever else it is you want to learn more about guns. However, we do get some questions more frequently than others. Below is a rundown of our most frequently asked questions here at SharpShooters, on the retail floor, on the range, on the phones, and from our website.
Below is a breakdown of the 20 topics you’ll learn when you attend a USCCA Introduction to Handgun Safety class.

The class is aimed at brand new shooters, so … Read more
The typical “summer slow down” continued through August, right up until last weekend, when all hell broke loose in Afghanistan. That day, and everyday since, foot traffic in our doors has been up 70% from where it was the previous 8 weeks. Why? Because the world is a less safe place than it was just over a week ago. Here’s what’s just happened, and where it seems to be headed.
Josh will teach you everything there is to know about how an AR15 rifle should work, what might break first, and how best to service, operate, maintain, and upgrade your rifle. If you’re even thinking about building an AR15, then you probably have some idea of how many different options there are. Josh has experience with just about all of them.
The black cloud of the 2020 ammo shortage had one silver lining. The lack of ammo brought proper attention to dry fire practice. Today, the great ammo shortage of 2020 is over. There’s plenty of ammo. It’s just too expensive to use on the daily. So, dry fire it is. But the practice of dry firing still needs more attention, more accolades, and more instruction, so here goes.
Way back in May, we pre-announced a long distance precision rifle training course, against my wishes. Our GM, Andy Glawe, had browbeat me into putting it out there. I told him we’d run a test class if we got 20 people to “pre-sign up”. We got nearly 200. Happy to admit when I am clearly … Read more
It seems yet another “conservative” company has hacked off a large portion of its customer base. Not sure why this event keeps repeating itself, but there’s definitely a pattern. I’ve seen it with both left and right leaning companies, both intentional and accidental. So, I thought I’d take the opportunity to position SharpShooters in a … Read more
We get asked (that’s the nice way of saying it) every day, “why won’t you lower ammo prices?!?” The simple answer is that we’re a business, and to stay in business, we can’t buy something for a dollar and sell it for 50¢. The more complicated answer goes back to March of 2020. I was … Read more
We last published our take on the ATF’s proposed rule to regulate the use of pistol stabilizing braces back on June 8, when the ATF first made the rule available for comment. Since then, much has transpired. Here we’re offering an update of both the information surrounding the proposed rule as well as our renewed … Read more
People ask us the question quite a bit, almost every day: “Do you handle my firearm FFL transfer?” The answer is yes, for all firearms including “NFA Items” such as suppressors, short barreled rifles, and and automatic weapons. After that very short conversation, the next question we get is, “OK, well how does that process work?” That’s what we’re getting to in this article: how to do a firearms / FFL transfer.
Every other Wednesday, we host a meeting called “Lady SharpShooters.” Almost every day, I get the question, “What is Lady SharpShooters?” So, here, I’ve interviewed Maddy Scholar, who leads and has led Lady SharpShooters for the last year. When Maddy started here at SharpShooters, the Ladies meeting consisted of about 7 or 8 ladies. Today, … Read more
We offer a lot of training classes. A LOT of training classes. Sometimes, it’s difficult for even us to keep up with what’s what when and who. And we’re adding more classes every week as our instructors learn and get great experiences that they can pass on to our customers. That’s what’s really at the … Read more
