This 8-hour course is intended for people with little or no pistol shooting experience. It is an introduction to the basics of pistol shooting, including the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to shoot a handgun safely and accurately at a very basic level.
This course fulfills the requirements for the 8-hour 1st day of training for your CCW.
Students interested in trying a variety of guns can rent them when we go to the range (additional fee paid to the range, not us). Choosing a handgun just by holding it in the store is like choosing a car by sitting in it in a parking lot. The benefit to this provides students the opportunity to actually test fire many different guns and calibers, to make a better informed gun purchase decision.
