Students should view my blog at to read about caliber and gun type requirements to qualify.  
Gun Rentals are available.  Normal gun rental is $75 and includes one type gun in .45 caliber for semi-automatic or .357 for non-semi-automatic (revolver) category.  Gun rental also includes enough rounds to practice and shoot one qualification.  If you want to rent 2 guns to get both categories, the cost is $100 and includes practice with semi-automatic and qualification on both categories of firearms.  email me separately for that, or let me know on day 1 and we can take care of that.
