This class is designed for the new firearms owner as well as the experienced firearms owner who wants to brush up on basic marksmanship fundamentals.  This class will instill the Safety First Mindset that every gun owner should live by.

Prerequisites:  None

This is a one day class that is split into two sections:

The Lecture:  This portion of the class is designed to first teach general firearms safety.  The lecture portion also covers the basic marksmanship fundamentals that include the grip, the stance, sight picture, sight alignment, the draw or presentation and trigger manipulation.

The Range:  This portion of the class is a practical hands-on approach to marksmanship fundamentals, teaching the student how to safely and accurately draw and fire a handgun.  Techniques to reduce "anticipating the recoil", which is common in new shooters and even affects seasoned shooters as well.
