This course is divided into two sections: 
1. The Classroom Training
2. Range Qualification.

The classroom portion of this course is approximately 6 hours long and involves safe gun handling, components of a firearm, basic firearm discussion, and general legal issues.  During this time, students will have an opportunity to review the NRA Guide to the Basics of Pistol Shooting handbook and Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification booklet. We will also cover other principles of firearm safety including: how to properly and safely store ammunition and firearms.  We cover the basics of proper cleaning techniques and maintaining your firearm. Students will have the opportunity to safely handle unloaded firearms and practice all of the proper shooting fundamental steps prior to attending the range for the live fire portion of the class. 

**Since students will be handling unloaded firearms during this course, students will be constantly observed and assessed on safety procedures**

The Shooting Range portion of this course may vary in length of time, depending on the students ability to apply all of the information taught during the classroom instruction. During this time, students will qualify by shooting live ammunition through a combination of different semi-auto pistols and revolvers.

Due to the inherent danger of handling loaded firearms, strict observation of the students capabilities to follow proper safety procedures will be performed. Should a student violate any safety rule repeatedly, the student may be dismissed from the range, without a refund.
