This is a basic pistol class designed to improve your fundamentals with a focus on defensive pistol use. Those who have little experience to those who have already taken a concealed carry course will benefit.

You must be a law-abiding citizen and legally able to purchase a firearm to attend this course.

If you did not shoot a perfect score in your concealed carry class, this class is for you. If you have little to no pistol experience and want to improve your skills and confidence, this class is for you.

What is the maximum number of people allowed in the class?
How many hours is classroom? Range?
Does each participant bring or leave for lunch?
Is there a deadline to enter by?


This class has a maximum of 6. Class and range is split evenly through out the day. We eat lunch in class. Pizza lunch is provided. There is no deadline to sign up but when the class is full, it’s full. Some fill weeks before, some fill the week of. There has been a lot of interest/ participation in this type of course. I didn’t anticipate putting this many on but am glad students are finding it enjoyable and beneficial.
