"We proudly teach our courses from a practical -not 'tactical'- approach"


2019 Holiday Special (November & December classes only) -- $100.00 per person.

Welcome to The Smoking Barrel!  We specialize in the CONCEALED CARRY COURSE!

Our course fees include lunch, range fees, and a Nebraska Game and Parks Commission Daily Park Permit.

We are a locally-owned family business in Scottsbluff/Gering, Nebraska. 

We have educated hundreds of students since 2013.  Our instructor is a Certified Professional Paralegal in addition to being certified by the Nebraska State Patrol and the National Rifle Association (NRA) in order to teach the courses we offer from an educated and practical perspective.  Our low student-to-instructor ratio provides for a more personalized instruction.

Our courses provide gun safety education, promote shooting proficiency, and inform students of their responsibilities with a firearm in a straightforward, interactive, and non-intimidating learning environment. 

Every course we offer is open to both men and women.  We feel that men and women are equal in all respects, firearms included.
