Shady Oaks Gun Range Firearms Instructor – Cody King

  • NRA Certified Pistol Instructor
  • NRA Certified Rifle Instructor

Message from Cody:

Growing up in a small North Texas town, I learned from an early age how to shoot firearms and how to shoot them safely. Since I was issued my license to carry 15 years ago, it’s been a personal goal and mission of mine to educate and instruct shooters of all ages about the proper techniques required to shoot safely and effectively. As your instructor on the range, I can personally guarantee that you’ll be safe and comfortable as well as armed with the knowledge, skills, and attitude to shoot safely and efficiently. 

Cody’s Advice for Beginners:

Understand and follow the 3 safety rules for gun handling:

– ALWAYS keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction*

– ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire

– ALWAYS keep your firearm unloaded until ready to use it

It’s best to learn the basics of how to shoot before purchasing a firearm. Taking private one-on-one instruction can greatly benefit a new shooter in several ways: how to shoot safely and efficiently, recommendations for first firearm purchase, cleaning and maintaining your firearm as well as guidance on proper gun storage and transportation.
