The Basics of Pistol Shooting is intended for all individuals regardless of previous shooting experience. This class will cover: firearms safety – including safe handling and storage of firearms, the different types of pistols and how they operate, pistol maintenance, and basic pistol shooting skills. *Note that this class does not incorporate a live-fire exercise so it does not require you to bring any any firearms or ammunition, and the shooting portion of the training will be conducted on our shooting simulator using real firearms that have been modified.
