This class is designed primarily as education for individuals with absolutely no pistol experience. Maybe you are thinking of making your first purchase. Maybe you just made that purchase and have no idea what comes next. Now you should begin to seek training. We know that getting into firearms can be intimidating and even terrifying. The Intro to Pistol Course is where new pistol owners or shooters come to “cut their teeth”.  Safety is paramount when handling any firearm and as a new shooter it is just as important that you know how to handle the weapon safely as it is to understand its functionality. We believe that one of the biggest mistakes a new gun owner can make is to purchase a firearm and think that if the "time comes" you'll know what to do. This could not be further from the truth. If you do not currently own a pistol then the only thing you need to bring to class is courage and a positive attitude. We will provide the rest. However, if you own a semi-automatic pistol and have no or limited experience using it we recommend bringing it with you. There is no better pistol to train with than your own. Come to class and get those first few "bangs" out of the way in a safe and controlled enviroment.
