Handgun Selection and Safety Basics
Location: near Paradise, CA
Recently we've seen a number of people (primarily women shooters) come down to the range with shiny new handguns that are inappropriate to their hand size, strength, and self-defense or recreational objectives. We offer this class to help reverse that trend.
This course is for people seeking a basic firearms orientation. It's especially good for first-time purchasers. (For that reason this is best taken before purchasing a handgun.) We provide safe, hands-on introduction to the different types and actions of handguns with an emphasis on safety and best fit with your own hand size, strength, and objectives.
Includes classroom and range time. In the classroom you'll learn the NRA’s rules for safe gun handling; the particular pistol model parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; cleaning the pistol; and continued opportunities for skill development. During the range section you'll learn to shoot a specific pistol action type. Books and other documentation provided, along with a course completion certificate.
