This is a two to three hour course designed for those who never fired a weapon before, and those who haven't fired a weapon for quite some time and need a refresher before wiping the dust off that old six shooter and putting it to use. Course will cover types of small arms {revolvers, auto pistols, and shotguns), how to load and unload these weapons, how they function, and the different types of ammo available for them. We will also provide you with the skills to fire these weapons. We will talk about general weapons safety, and how to make these weapons safe. I encourage you to bring your handgun if you have one, and at least 100 rounds of ammo. For those who don't have a weapon, there are several on site for you to choose from ($10.00 rental & $20.00 per 50 rds ammo replacement fee). The cost is $75.00. Those with a group of 4 or more, please call and schedule a date.
