Our introductory handgun course is a 1 day, 8-hour class that will introduce students to the Handgun. New and experienced students alike will learn proper firearms handling and safety, maintenance, marksmanship fundamentals, presentation from a holster, and more. Students will leave the course with a working level knowledge of how to safely and effectively employ the handgun.
