This method allows us to offer very efficient and effective training packages. Our students are seen as safe and competent shooters… We also provide consultation to assist you in choosing the proper guns and gear.

GST is now accepting all levels of students. Please send all inquiries to: or call (732)245-7844 and ask for Joe


There is an old saying, “When the student is ready, the master will appear.”  In my case, the Master is Joseph Savio from GST Firearms Training.

Joe is an all-around expert on firearms, from hardware and guns, range etiquette to proper handling of the weapon and most importantly, safety.  He also ingrains in you the proper respect for the power and lethality of firearms in general.

I started out as a complete newbie and am now very confident in my abilities to properly handle and discharge my weapons.  Joe’s curriculum goes above and beyond the other training programs I was considering and training with him is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

If you are looking to purchase a weapon or already have one, the proper training can be the difference between life and death.   I know that if ever comes down to it, Joe’s guidance will give me the best chance to successfully defend my family when trouble comes knocking.

I want to take this opportunity to let you know how much I appreciate your instruction in my level 1 handgun training course.  When I purchased my first firearm several weeks ago, I knew nothing at all about guns,

From the very first lesson, your approach of breaking down each basic element of the handling and operation of the firearm made it educational and easy to absorb.

Your extreme and continuous focus on safety, in particular, allowed me to become quite comfortable with the handgun use very quickly.  I am looking forward to and excited about the next level of training.   Thank you.
