Jersey and NYC kind of suck as places to learn how to use a firearm properly. A good bet would be to take a course from an NRA-certified instructor. The courses you'd want to take are Basic or First Steps (a much briefer Basic course) for Pistol and/or Rifle, depending on what you want to learn. Also, you might have to pay extra if you don't have a gun to bring along, I'm not sure.
