This USCCA class covers the general knowledge of how to use a semi-automatic or revolver. We will cover the universal safety rules of gun handling. As well, this class will cover the working parts of a hand-gun and common self defense ammunition. You will learn the fundamentals of shooting and then apply those learned concepts on the range as you practice with live ammunition.

This is a great class for beginners who are interested in buying their first firearm to the long-time shooter who is ready for a refresher course. We will discuss the designated topics but every class is different depending on the interests and skill level of the students. We briefly cover and discuss use-of-force laws. This is NOT a CCW course. If you are interested in a CCW course, I am more than happy to direct you to a well-qualified instructor.
