About Eastern Shore Firearms Training
Eastern Shore Firearms Training is USMC Vet-owned and operated in Jacksonville, NC. We treat every student like they are a part of our family. Other companies may offer similar services, but our smaller class size enables us to maintain that personal touch with our students.

As a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, Eastern Shore Firearms Training provides NRA certifications as well as required training to apply for the NC Concealed Carry Handgun permit.

Brandon Benson, Range Safety Observer
Jeff began shooting at an early age, growing up in the mountains of Northwestern Pennsylvania. He served in the United States Marine Corps and retired from the Federal Government with over 35 years of service. As a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, Eastern Shore Firearms Training provides a way to continue his passion for shooting and to instruct others in the safe use of firearms for personal defense and sport shooting. He is a Certified Navy Instructor, NRA Instructor, Range Safety Officer (RSO) at the Holly Shelter Shooting Range and certified by the NC Justice Department to teach NC Concealed Carry classes.
He is also certified by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission to provide Hunter Education courses. This course is required for all first-time hunting license buyers in North Carolina. Certification is accepted in every state and province in North America. Sign up at NC Wildlife site here.
Brandon is born and raised in Eastern NC completing Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) and receiving his Criminal Justice degree in Wilmington, NC. Brandon works closely with all students providing encouragement and feedback as needed. His love for family and country is the basis of his passion for 2nd Amendment rights. An avid shooter, he loves teaching the fundamentals to those new to the sport.

The Second Amendment was adopted on December 15, 1791. It reads:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Growing up in Jacksonville, Jeffrey has always been exposed to the military and the freedoms the United States offers. Even though professionally, Jeffrey entered the Information Technology sector, his interest in firearms, hunting and personal protection led him back to the education of others. Jeffrey is a certified NRA Instructor and is one of our NC Concealed Carry instructors. In addition to instruction, Jeffrey is also available to assist with FFL & NFA transfers.
