Do I need to own a gun to participate in the class? 


Absolutely not. To make our training classes more accessible to everyone wanting to learn, we offer both handgun and carbine rentals that you can use while at our facility. 


As professionals, we strongly feel that if you are new to the world of firearms, it is good to learn how to safely handle a firearm - and find out if you even like shooting - before investing in one of your own. 

What if I am a beginner with no firearm experience? 


If you are a beginner with no firearm experience at all, we are excited that you are considering Vienna Arsenal Training as your starting point.

Will your course teach me how to protect myself and my family? 


You can take a firearm training course that will give you an overview of what you need to safely and successfully shoot a gun. Or, you can take our courses that will give you practical knowledge that you can use to protect yourself and your family. 


We have a selection of courses that will help you meet your goals:
