This course is for everyone. We will start with the basics of handgun shooting on a traditional static range. Then go to more advanced  skills on a non-traditional range with reactive targets. This will cover safety, parts of the firearm, shooting fundamentals, drawing from a concealed holster, reloads, malfunction clearing and 9 shooting drills that build skill. Then 2 shooting quals, situational drills, includes unorthodox shooting (kneeling,supine, sitting).

You will also receive a student book with all pertinent information.
