Basic Pistol Classes around NJ

I've seen a fair number of basic pistol classes being offered around the country the more time I spend on the web. However, does anyone know of a person/company that is based in NJ/NY/PA/CT/MA that offers 1 or 2 day pistol basics classes. I'd like to avoid having to get on a plane to go to my first few courses.

I'm looking to learn shooting fundamentals in an outdoor setting. So far I only shoot indoors and quick shooting and multiple target shooting is a no-go. I'm not looking for some tactical, room clearing, shooting from cars, CQB thing. Something like what Sig offers in NH or what Tactical Performance Center does in UT (the late Ron Avery's school really appeals to me).

Thanks for any leads.

If you want a shooting fundamentals, have you looked at the NRA Basic classes, such as NRA Basic Pistol Shooting, NRA Basic Rifle Shooting, etc.? You can find instructors offering such classes in you are on the website:

It allows a zipcode search to find classes in your area. If looking for more advanced shooting fundamentals instruction, many local shooting ranges work with instructors and can recommend a few. For tactical/practical type classes, some of them are often mentioned here on this sub-forum when their class schedules are known.

The bar to be called an NRA instructor is woefully low.
