There are no upcoming classes scheduled for this course.
If you've never held or shot a gun before (or if it's been a long time), THIS is the class for you. The FTHAG class is geared toward both male and female new shooters.
The class builds a comfort level by teaching you about the mechanics of a firearm, how it works, how to handle it safely, how to load it, how to unload it, how to manipulate the cylinder on a revolver or the slide on a semi-automatic. The class discusses ammunition and the basics of defending yourself. Students MAY shoot at the end of the class, but do not have to. Shooting time is limited to a few rounds -- just enough to get a feel for how a gun works, and decide whether you want to continue your firearms education.
Students routinely leave more confident...and smiling!

Expectations and Outcomes
At the end of this class, students will have a better understanding of what firearms CAN and CAN'T do and how to safely handle and fire them.
IF you have a fire arm at home that you'd like to shoot, please bring it (unloaded and boxed) along with ammunition. Dress comfortably (masks are welcome) with flat, close-toed shoes. Bring extra money if you want to buy ammo or if you want a copy of The Handgun Guide for Women.
Bring a good attitude and no preconcieved notions! As there is currently an ammo shortage, we ask you bring your own ammunition -- only 5-10 rounds of either .22 LR, .380 ACP or 9 mm. We will provide a gun for you to shoot and eye/ear protection at no additional cost. If you cannot find ammunition, we do have some available for sale, but it is expensive and in 50-round boxes, so you may want to split a box with other students.
