Defensive Handgun (200)

This four (4) hour class reviews firearm safety and shooting fundamentals in the classroom, and then it’s off to the range. We focus on shooting drills, re-loading, clearing malfunctions, verbal commands, and scanning.

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!

Required equipment: Students should bring a firearm, 2 magazines, approximately 150 rounds of ammunition, eye protection and ear protection. Your class payment includes free use of a .22 caliber firearm, eye protection and ear protection if you do not own them. Ammunition is not included and must be secured prior to class.

Required prerequisites:  This is not a beginner course and previous shooting experience is required. Students should have a clear understanding of loading/unloading their firearm, shooting fundamentals, and firearm safety. The recommended prerequisite course to this class is a recent NRA Basic Pistol course, Ladies Pistol (100) course, equivalent beginner shooting course, or previous shooting experience conducted recently.
