My class offers more than just the basics required from the State of Florida. I will train you basic pistol operations and safe handling practices, awareness, the laws pertaining to concealed firearms, and much more. You will leave class and the range comfortable and confident and certified to apply for your permit with the State of Florida. You not only will be trained beyond the minimum but I strive to make your class educational and make you more aware and knowledgeable.

The range time shooting requirement will be completed by each student at Reload located in Tarpons Springs,  FL, after the classroom portion is complete.

Topics Covered

This lesson will cover the basics, including a very visual overview of what we call the “building blocks” or the fundamentals for accurate and safe shooting. Within this lesson, I will help explain the differences between the skills required for being a good “marksman” at the range, and the skills that might be required to save your life if you are ever the subject of a violent attack.
