This Introduction to Handguns firearms training class will teach the basic knowledge, skills and attitude necessary for owning and using a handgun safely.

This class is designed for the people with very little to no knowledge of handguns, or those who are years out of practice and want a good refresher course. The first hour of the class is spent in the classroom discussing the different types of handguns and how to handle them safely, ammunition and malfunctions, and the fundamentals of handgun shooting.

The second hour is spent on the range, doing actual shooting with a variety of guns, chosen by the instructor to fit the shooter. The basics of stance, sight picture, and trigger control are emphasized to maximize success the first time out. After completing this class, the shooter will be able to safely use the range without supervision.
