Handguns Level 1 is 4-5 hours of classroom and range instruction. Starting with a heavy emphasis on safety and practicality, we cover a lot more than “just the basics” in this course including slow fire for accuracy, trigger follow through, speed v accuracy, presentation from compression, and defensive shooting drills. Students will leave with the confidence and knowledge needed to practice on their own and come back for our level 2 courses!
