Steiner Academy of Firearms Training
is a firearms instruction company based in Omaha, Nebraska.
Absolutely top of the line. Shawn Steiner is an amazing instructor and very very very knowledgeable. He made the course fun and his attitude and personality made the course very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend his courses 100%.
Excellent place to learn firearm training and ccw basics. I came from no experience whatsoever, and Shawn showed me everything I need to know to be safe while handling a firearm and how to properly conceal carry. I would absolutely recommend his classes to anyone needing to learn.
My husband and I took a conceal carry class as one of the steps to obtaining our CHP/CCW. Shawn Steiner was our instructor and he was amazing. He is beyond knowledgeable about the laws and regulations, and even better he wasn't boring. Shawn isn't just some dude that was looking for something to do and figured he'd teach about a gun permit. He is a badass. His experience and knowledge in both guns, and self defense far exceed many and he is very good at teaching that to others. Not all who know can teach. While also being very knowledgeable and good at sharing his knowledge, he was patient, which we all know is a hard attribute to come by when many aren't the sharpest and you're teaching them about guns which is a very serious thing. I would recommend anyone who wants to get a ccw, or sharpen their gun skills to go to Shawn Steiner.
This range is also pretty great. All of the people working there were super warm and welcoming. Some other ranges that we've been to make you feel like you're and idiot and their gun is better than yours. I think if you don't make me, the paying customer, feel welcome, so I come back to spend more money, you're the idiot. Inner 10 never made myself or my husband feel bad. They were excited to see us and to show us guns and were helpful while in the range. I haven't been to a range many times, haven't shot a gun many times, so I am still a bit nervous in that area, and the people working at Inner 10 made me feel more calm which made me get more experience with my gun and shooting. We will definitely be frequenting this shooting range often and are excited for the next time.
Inner 10 is the place to go to shoot! Shawn Steiner is the dude to take your CHP/CCW class from. I will send anyone I know to Inner 10 for both. Side note, don't let your CHP lapse!!!! It's expensive in both money and time. Also, sorry for the long sentences. I write, like I talk.
I enjoyed the class, he had some funny jokes and a different way of looking at situations that I may not have seen from the angle he presented in, which opened my mind to other possibilities in said situations
Shawn made the class very enjoyable and informative.
Shawn was supportive of my desire to learn how to shoot a gun from the day I walked in the door. I experienced some very EXTREME, embarrassing, and unexpected anxiety trying to shoot for the first time. He agreed to meet with me on an individual basis in hopes that it would help alleviate some of my anxiety. It did, but just a little. I told him many times how I wanted to quit and that shooting was probably just not for me. Every time, Shawn had something encouraging to say and continually urged me to keep working at it. We did make progress and I eventually learned how to be more comfortable with the gun in my hand and actually shooting it. All of that progress was because of Shawn; he was VERY patient with me and had answers for every one of my fears, concerns, and complaints. When I say patient, I mean it, we've been working on it for approximately 6 months!
Shawn could have told me a gazillion times to pack it in and try something else, but he never did. He told me that I could do it and it turns out he was right. He knows what he's talking about. Shawn also gave me countless tips and tricks to deal with all of my fears; very helpful things that I can continue to use in the future.
If someone is curious about how to SAFELY handle and shoot guns, then Shawn is the instructor you want. I am happy that I stuck with it and I am eternally grateful for Shawn's expertise and compassion.
I also did an intro to firearms workshop with a group of 7 other women, all at various comfort and ability levels. He gave everyone the individual attention and guidance they needed, and by the end of the workshop, everyone had gained not only confidence, but skill too - it was great watching these women feel empowered at conquering something new.
I found this class by Googling "CCW instructors near me." This is fortunate, as I found Shawn Steiner to be a patient and informative instructor with a "drill sergeant" sense of humor. He kept it human with every student and answered any questions they had respectfully. He facilitated difficult conversations about the right to defend one's self with clarity and has made me feel confident in my ability to not only conceal and draw my firearm, but also to know when I should do so.
There was also a very informative discussion about defense insurance that I think anyone who believes in their right to defend themselves and their families should be aware of.
In my opinion, this class is for anyone and all people are welcomed. You will just need to leave your biases at the door and allow yourself to think critically. I plan to practice and expand on the skill sets this course has provided me.1
I’m a mid-60’s concealed handgun permit holder. I had been through a number of pistol handling/marksmanship training courses over the years, but wanted to improve my skills if I was ever would be caught up in an entangled, hands on assault. I had looked around at a number of instructors, but wasn’t having much luck finding someone that had pistol skills, martial arts skills, and would be willing to help me refine those skills over a number of lessons (as opposed to a “one and done” class).
I was pleased when I came across Shawn. He’s an experienced, hands on, martial artist. He’s a certified Rangemaster self-defense pistol instructor. He’s been through a number of nationally recognized entangled self-defense pistol courses. Right what I was looking for. Beyond his technical skills, as an “older guy” I needed someone that was willing to work with me at my level of physical ability. Someone that would pressure test the new skills I’d be learning, but do it in a way that respects the fact that I’m a bit more fragile and not in as good of condition as a typical teenager. Shawn’s been the man. Terrific instructor. Expert with a pistol and hands on skills. A+.
