Defensive Handgun (101)

This six (6) hour class reviews firearm safety and shooting fundamentals in the classroom, and then it’s off to the range. We cover grip, stance, verbal commands, ready positions, re-loading, Phase 1 malfunctions, effective shooting drills, and more!

This course focuses on using a firearm for the lawful self-defense of you or your family. Learn how to use your handgun to give yourself the best chances of stopping a threat and save a life, especially your own!

Students should bring a firearm, 2 magazines, and approximately 150 rounds of ammunition, eye and ear protection. A holster is recommended but not required.

We are very glad to resume Preserve Academy classes and are keeping your health and safety as our highest priority. For each class, please bring a face mask and hand sanitizer. We will ensure classrooms, the range and all other areas related to your class are regularly cleaned and sanitized.
