Training Course Refund Policy

You must contact us 48 hours before the class if you can’t make it and we will apply your deposit to a class that suits your schedule. If you do not cancel 48 hours before class, you are subject to losing your deposit/pre-payment. No refunds are given.

What is the minimum age requirement?

A parent or guardian is required to take the class along with a child under the age of 18. We ask you, the parent, “Do you feel comfortable with the child next to you with a loaded gun?” If you have any doubts, wait a couple of years. Children are easier to teach than adults because when we tell a child to do something, they do it. Adults ask, “Why?”

Do you offer training courses for first-time shooters?

We have a wide variety of training courses for all levels of shooters! Please Click Here for our training course offerings and pricing and Click Here for our new shooter‘s training courses.

The OA Firearms and Survival Training LLC, is one of the best in New Jersey. Go see Theo, he’s very knowledgeable and professional. He knows what he’s doing. You won’t disappoint it, I highly recommend it 10/10 for sure no exaggeration.
Good instructor, fun experience. Good for beginners with little experience, does not make new shooters feel overwhelmed.
