Description

This comprehensive course provides hands-on training and the basic knowledge necessary to safely handle, load, fire, and maintain most types of revolvers and semi-automatic pistols. Classroom and practical application time offer ample opportunity to achieve the skills for success in a casual, stress-free environment. This course requires no live-fire, focusing more on how to shoot correctly before firing a single round. Therefore, reducing errors and mishaps on the range during our live-fire courses.
