Generally, in this situation, we offer these people individual courses, making it easier for the student to concentrate.

  • How to Handle a Malfunction
  • Various Parts Identified
  • How to Load & Unload
  • Basic Marksmanship
  • Cleaning & Storage

We supply all eye and ear protection. Student must bring 100 rounds of ammunition and the pistol they wish to be trained on. Pistols are loaned to students if they do not own one as of class time. NYS Pistol Permit must be shown at the time of class. Always remember: “On Target, On Trigger/Off Target, Off Trigger.”

The Three Rules for Safe Gun & Tactical Scope Handling

  1. Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
  2. Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
