Our basic handgun course is designed to teach new shooters the knowledge and practical skills necessary for safety and success. Experienced shooters will also enjoy this class as a great refresher course. This two-hour session is broken into three parts:

  • Classroom instruction: You’ll start in the classroom, where you’ll first learn handgun safety. You’ll also learn more about the basics of shooting a handgun, such as how to operate your weapon, how to load and unload, how to stand and grip correctly and other fundamentals of operation and shooting.
  • Instructor demonstration: After learning the theoretical knowledge behind your handgun, your instructor will show you how to apply this knowledge at the range. During this part of the course, the instructor will demonstrate proper stance, grip and other basics while shooting at a target.
  • Student participation: Once you watch your instructor demonstrate the skills you’ll need for safe and accurate shooting, you can put your learning to the test. Each student will practice firing at shooting range targets. You’ll stay safe under the watchful eye of your instructor, who can then provide practical tips to help you further improve.
    Expert, friendly, instructors teach each course with easy-to-follow directions and a service-oriented attitude, helping you feel comfortable throughout your time at the range. You’ll leave with increased confidence in your abilities and skills you can use for a lifetime.
