Handgun Introduction (3 hours – no range time)
Many people take the Concealed Carry class and buy a handgun. Now what? How do you prepare to carry responsibly? Perhaps you are waiting to purchase a handgun and you feel overwhelmed by all of the pistols available at your local gun store. Maybe you’re a woman who feels unsafe in parking lots and parking garages but you’re not comfortable carrying your firearm yet. If any of these sound familiar, this is the starter class for you.
This class focuses on real questions, like “What’s the best handgun for me to use to protect myself, my home, and my family?” and “How do I keep my gun away from my grandkids but still be ready for a home invasion?”
This class is fully hands-on. With up to 30 firearms with which to work, you will learn how to comfortably handle a firearm safely. When we’re done you will be able to identify all the handgun types, pros and cons of each, and ready for a trip to the gun store!
Basic Firearms Training (4 hours – includes 1 hour range time)
Starting with the basics, we walk through every aspect of handling and firing your pistol safely, accurately and quickly. You will learn the difference between training and practice, the value of dry fire (besides saving loads of money) and how to build your shot cycle. Stance, breathing, muzzle management, trigger finger discipline, iron and optic site pictures, grip, tactical and emergency reloads, and more, will be reviewed in a logical, understandable way so that you can continue practicing at home and on the range.
NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course (8 hours – includes 1+ hour range time)
The goal of this course is to teach you the basic knowledge, skills and attitude to own and use a pistol.

One-on-One Pistol Marksmanship (1 hour – on or off range)
If you want to shoot your handgun better than you do today, this class is for you. We begin and end with a 5-round test.
