About the Course
Part 1 is a 2-hour classroom session focused on handgun function, ownership, and care. We will look at
the parts of a handgun and how they work, along with review the different types of ammunition and
their uses. Cleaning and safe storage will be covered, as well as gear and what to expect when you go to
the range. To finish we’ll cover the 7-fundamentals of shooting in preparation for part 2.
Part 2 is a 2-hour session, with the first 30 minutes being a review of the 7-Fundanentals in the
classroom and the rest of the time on the range working on live fire skills. You will need a functioning
firearm, 50 – 100 round of ammunition, eye protection, and ear protection (available for purchase).
