Basic Pistol - Instructor Led

8 hours (1 day)

Basic Pistol courses teach the fundamentals of owning, safe handling, safety, and use of pistols. Be it a nice new Glock to an heirloom .38 Special revolver, whatever you will shoot is what you will use for the course. Our instruction is designed around teaching the individual rather than teaching en masse. You will find this course both informative and fun as we will be spending several hours inside for classroom instruction followed by several hours of shooting. All shooting occurs on a separate range exclusively for this class. You will only be interacting with the instructors and other students, no other shooters will be present. You will receive a course completion certificate which qualifies with the AZ regulations for applying for a CCW. Fingerprinting also available during the class.
