IS THIS THE RIGHT CLASS FOR ME?

the Pistol-I(a) is an introduction to “gun fighting.” It is a physically and mentally demanding 8 hour course. If you are not familiar with a basic working knowledge of handguns and if you are not too comfortable handling it, this class is NOT for you.  We have a separate class called BASIC HANDGUN  which is much more hands on with students and elementary in level. BASIC HANDGUN teaching style is moderate and low key which gives the student an opportunity to ease into learning about shooting and home defense.

Regardless, please read the course outline carefully before selecting this class.  Generally, this class it the right way to start learning how to shoot for defensive application.  Watch the intro video below.  Otherwise please consider taking our BASIC HANDGUN program.
