New Shooter – Check with Range for Availability
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We will start in the education room and talk about gun safety. We will work on proper grip with blue guns (both a revolver and semi auto). We will work with snap caps with a revolver and semi auto learning how to load, unload and make it safe. We will show you how to quickly clear a jammed semi automatic pistol. We will work with unloaded guns on proper sight picture. We will look at ballistics and what are appropriate bullet weights and power charges for different length barrels. We will look and talk about all the different choices you have in pistols; single stack, double stack, polymer, all steel, double action, double action/single action, striker fire, single action…many choices and all have pluses and minuses.
We will then go to the range. We will shoot many handguns from sub sub compact 380’s to full size all metal 45 acps. More information regarding the guns we will shoot can be found in the course description on this website; events and training page.
We will learn and have fun.
The course includes ammunition, range time, guns, targets, eye and ear protection.
Class cost is $75
