Introduction to Handguns

This is the perfect class for a beginner or someone wanting to learn to shoot a handgun. Spend an hour in the classroom learning safety and basic fundamentals, then move to the range for hands-on instruction where you learn to shoot a variety of firearms. Price includes ammunition, targets, firearms, eye/ear protection and range fees. The class covers:

  • The elements of firearms safety
  • Gun range protocol
  • Handgun and ammunition components
  • Loading and unloading a firearm
  • Proper stance and grip
  • Correct sight picture and trigger control
  • Firing from a standing position
  • Basic practice drills you can use later
  • Cleaning your firearm

The instructor demonstrates the correct technique and then works with each student one-on-one on the proper and efficient way to safely load and shoot a handgun. The course is a live-fire course with the students doing most of the firing. One-on-one coaching is a central element of this course.


* Course fee includes the use of our firearms, ammunition, targets, eye/ear protection, and range fees. If you already have a firearm, feel free to bring it – it’s a great way to focus and train on your own gun. Whether you are new to shooting or “have been shooting awhile”, this course will certainly increase your level of confidence and your handgun skills. During the class, you will have the opportunity to fire different firearm types and different calibers.

An excellent “pre-course” for those wanting to get their LTC license.
