Students should arrive at range office about 8:15am to sign range waiver and watch a brief safety video.

Students should be at the instruction site and ready to learn at 9:00am. The Class is usually over around 3:00pm (plus or minus 30 minutes).

This course cover the basics and fundamentals of good pistol shooting as well as solid weapons handling and defensive deployment of a handgun. Our focus is on safety and marksmanship, utilizing a variety of drills designed to develop speed, accuracy, and precision.

Pistol 1 & 2 (Basic-Intermediate)

On part 1 of the course, the students will begin with safety instruction, stance, draw, grip, pistol hold and sight alignment. Even for more experienced shooters, the idea is to reinforce fundamentals that may be lacking before moving into actual shooting. Shooting drills then follow in a slowly increasing round-count cadence.
Part 2 of the course is designed around presenting students with new knowledge, ideas, and principles to employ their weapon in a defensive situation, and keep the weapon functioning throughout a potential engagement. Malfunction clearing, rapid magazine changes, and rapid fire at multiple targets is the end goal of the class.
