Introduction to Women's Basic Pistol

Are you new to shooting?  Have you ever wanted to learn how to properly shoot a handgun but was afraid or felt too embarrassed? You have no experience but would like to learn before you take a basic class?  Then this is the course for you.

The Intro to a Basic Handgun course is designed for the new shooter.  This class will cover safe gun handling and shooting fundamentals.  The classroom portion will cover the safety rules, gun handling, the mechanics of semi-automatic pistols and teach the fundamentals of shooting (stance, grip sight alignment, sight picture and trigger control) all in a comfortable, no pressure environment.  The range portion will give students the opportunity to practice those skills with live ammunition.  Class size is limited to six students.
 At the completion of this course, you will understand how to safely handle, operate and shoot a pistol and provide you with the necessary skills to advance to a basic instruction course.​

Below are a few things you will want to bring for this course:

Firearms Class– your personal gun (revolvers are not allowed in this class), a sturdy belt, hip holster (no shoulder holsters), eye protection/safety glasses, ear protection/plugs, closed toe shoes (no sandals or flip flops allowed for this class) and we suggest comfortable clothing. 
 You must bring your ammo (150 rounds, you may bring more if you want to shoot after class), and 2 magazines.  
Other convenience  items you may want to bring:  camp chair/stool, sunscreen, bug spray, hand sanitizer, a ball cap, sunglasses, and snacks.
