(In most cases, if you're going to make a purchase you'll want a couple of weeks between the two classes in this course.)

New Shooter I: Classroom only. Real first-timer stuff. This course is for people seeking a basic firearms orientation. Especially good for first-time purchasers but will work well to introduce you to the ins and outs of your new or rediscovered handgun. Firearms Safety Certificate testing available.

New Shooter II: Live-fire range.  Meet your native marksmanship skills and learn how to start improving them. We continue with safe loading and unloading techniques and start you on a good firearm maintenance regimen. We strongly suggest you complete this class before going out to shoot solo.
