The classroom training will go on. However, if we cannot conduct live-fire on an actual outdoor range,
then I am forced to postpone that portion of the exercise until weather permitting. I simply do not
control how ranges are set up or their conditions. We will shoot in the morning dependent on weather
and temperature.

• Instructions on handling handguns provided during classroom training for safety purposes.
• Students must abide by all range safety rules. Failure to comply with safety rules will result in immediate removal from the range, and result in course failure. No family members, guests, pets, photographs, or videotape will be allowed in the classroom or at the range.
