Course Information

Introduction to Handguns Level 1 is a 3 hour training course with classroom and range instruction. This course is ideal for anyone new to handguns, and/or anyone considering purchasing their first new gun. Starting with a heavy emphasis on safety and practicality, we cover a lot more than “just the basics” in this course. We begin with slow fire for accuracy and finish with an introduction to speed v accuracy. Students will leave with the confidence and knowledge needed to practice on their own and come back for our level 2 courses!

Students will need to purchase 100 rounds of target (FMJ) ammunition. When using our handguns, students may purchase any combination of 9mm or 380acp for semi-autos, or 38spl for revolvers.

$100.00
