Handgun 1


There are three levels of handgun training that we 0ffer; Handgun 1 , Handgun 2 and Handgun 3.  The main difference between the levels is tempo.  In Handgun 1 class we go the slow to ensure everyone is SAFE, and everyone is learning the subject matter.  In Handgun 2 course we speed up the tempo somewhat, and in Handgun 3 class is high tempo. Rimfire (.22 lr) firearms are OK to bring if you want instead of shooting a more expensive caliber.

HANDGUN 1 COURSE – class is approximately 5 hours long – tuition = $85.00

Class Size – 6 students (class is kept small to allow me the time to spend with each student)
