I want to encourage you to dress for the occasion, comfortable pants and shoes. We will be shooting a .22 caliber firearm and your personal firearm during the live fire exercise. I’ll furnish the .22 caliber firearm and ammo - you'll need to furnish your personal firearm and ammunition for this training. Shooting will be done at a local outdoor gun range. 

Make sure you bring an unloaded firearm into the Training Center. I’ll perform a firearm safety check to make sure it is safe to handle.

Here is a list of items you need to bring to training;

    A notebook or paper to take notes on

    A pen and highlighter

    Eye and ear protection

    Your pistol and 50 rounds of ammunition (minimum)
