Our experience has shown us on multiple occasions that a new shooter buys a firearm without at least shooting a similar model and then finds that the firearm is not a “good fit” for the purpose it was intended.

Students will receive basic instruction on gun safety from revolvers and semi-automatic hand guns, the different types and how they work, the various types of malfunctions, storage, cleaning and proper shooting techniques.  A variety of handgun and calibers (ammo included) from 22LR to 44 magnums will be on hand (Approximately 30+ different handguns) to shoot after the initial range firing with the class revolvers and semi-automatics. Instructors will be with each student on the firing line. Students will receive a certificate of completion after demonstrating the proper use of a handgun.

An example of most of the Firearms  students are able to shoot in the class. Plus a few not shown!! 22LR to 44 magnum! Glocks, Colt, S&W, Sig Sauer, Ruger, Springfield, to name a few.
