Handgun 101, The Basics is the first step in building your training foundation. This class is designed for the new shooter, for the shooter that may have owned a handgun for a while but never received proper training, or for the shooter that wants a refresher.

We will develop perfect basic pistol marksmanship fundamentals, perform magazine changes, live-fire rounds from multiple distances, and more.

This class is divided into two sessions. The classroom session, lasting 60 to 75 minutes, allows students to practice the fundamentals of grip, stance, sight picture, and trigger control in a “dry handling” session. During the live-fire session, students will have the opportunity to handle, load, and fire several different types of handguns in .22 caliber and will fire up to 50 rounds of ammunition in order to build skill and competence. The course concludes with a wrap-up session in the classroom to review lessons learned and answer any questions that students may have.
