Basics of Handgun is the first step in in training after purchasing your handgun or if you've never taken a formal training course. This course introduces students to pistol shooting fundamentals, body mechanics, proper reloading techniques and malfunction clearing. This class is 6 hours and is not a NRA course of instruction.
You will need a minimum of 100 rounds for your pistol.
You will need to bring safety glasses and hearing protection. Electronic hearing protection is preferred so you can hear range commands.
This course will be held entirely on an outdoor range, rain or shine, so please bring weather appropriate gear.
RANGE DRILLS INCLUDE:
- Shooting fundamentals / Accuracy Drills
- Body Mechanics of Shooting
- Speed / Tactical Reloads
- Malfunction Clearing
- Target Transitions
WHAT TO BRING:
- Pistol in a self-defense caliber (9mm or larger)
- NEW FOR 2021 - THE USE OF 22lr Semi-Auto Pistols will be allowed due to the ammo shortage! I recommend the Glock 44 and the Smith & Wesson M&P 22 Compact. These are the most reliable with the biggest variety of ammo.
