This class is designed to educate you on the fundamentals of pistol training including safety techniques, basic shooting stances, loading magazines, clearing firearms, and more.

My goal is to ensure that when leaving the class, you feel comfortable with the knowledge gained about handguns.

I strive to make the environment family-friendly, as well as professional so everyone can learn in both an educational and enjoyable atmosphere.
