This isn't a course that many that are regulars here will want for themselves...but for loved ones maybe! This would work great for a spouse, child, parent, etc. to help them gain basic familiarity with the handling and function of pistols. I teach in a laid-back, fun style (no mall ninja stuff!) and try to help beginners have a great time. We will do a couple of hours of classroom instruction then head to the range to get some practice. I have 5 seats left as of 5/27.
This course is perfect for anyone who wants basic instruction in the safe handling and use of pistols. Appropriate for children 10 and up as well as adults. This class is limited to 10 students.

Cost for this course is $55, including all instructional material and range fees. The student is responsible for ammunition costs.
FIRST Steps Pistol
FIRST stands for "Firearm Instruction, Responsibility, and Safety Training", a program the NRA developed to meet the need for a firearms orientation program for new gun purchasers. This FIRST Steps program is a basic courses abbreviated to the most fundamental shooting skills, and the specifics of a particular model of pistol.
This course, because of its narrow focus, can be completed as quickly as three hours. Students will get the NRA's The Basics of Pistol Shooting handbook and quick practical lessons on the safe use, cleaning, and storage of their pistol. The practical exercise covers a single pistol shooting position. As the number of participants or pistol types present increases, the course will take proportionally longer.
"To provide beginning shooters with an introduction to the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to own and use a specific pistol model safely."
