This course is designed to give you the basics of handgun shooting. In a relaxed and personal experience you will quickly pick up the essentials of handgun shooting with hands-on activities designed help you feel comfortable shooting a handgun. We will cover handgun design and functions, the basics of holding, aiming and shooting handguns, and then let you 'learn by doing' by shooting rimfire and center fire pistols in our training range.
Once you feel comfortable shooting a handgun, you'll have the opportunity to play what we call a "live-fire video game" using one of our video-style targets to test both your new skills and your enjoyment level.
