DEZ Classes

Classes are held weekly at DEZ including Wisconsin concealed carry and more. Our classes are kept at a smaller size to enhance learning and enable students to ask questions during instruction. Private lessons are also available by appointment. Our classes are taught by a certified NRA instructor. With our indoor range on site, students have access to hands-on learning on how to safely and properly use a firearm any time of the year.

Private Lessons:

Private lessons at DEZ are perfect for those who want to learn in a more comfortable setting. Those taking a private lesson are encouraged to work with our instructor to cover the topics and/or techniques they wish to learn. Our standard private lessons cover a maximum of two individuals, and the length of the lesson is customizable (2 hours minimum is recommended). To schedule a private lesson, please contact the range at (608) 448-4040. You may also register on our website and we will reach out and schedule a date and time that works for you.
