You can bring your own semi-automatic handgun or revolver if it is in good working order. The instructor will inspect all firearms before they are used on the range.

If you are bringing your own firearm you will need to also bring 50-100 rounds of ammo or it may be purchased at the range.

The students will also need some type of eye and ear protection. We recommend the muff style ear protection.
