Firearms Orientation is a 3-4 hour introductory class which can include one hour of practical shooting exercises at the range. (Range Time is optional and costs $20 extra) BUT YOU DO NOT NEED TO SHOOT FOR THIS CLASS IF YOU DON’T WISH TO. Let us take the fear out of gun ownership. If you choose to shoot, Pistols are available for rent for $31 (includes ammo and range fee) at the range if you choose not to use one of ours. You do not need to own a gun to attend this class. You are not required to shoot to complete this orientation. At the end of course you may still not choose to own a firearm, but you will feel much more confident and safe with guns. We guarantee it.
Once you complete this course, you may wish to take the NRA Basic Pistol 8-hour Course or the NRA Personal Protection in the Home Course (which allows you to apply for a CCW in Michigan). Or you may wish to go further and get into one of our private advanced tactical classes or private lessons.
In Basic Pistol you will learn how to become confident handling, firing, and cleaning your pistol. This class focuses on helping you become SAFE with your pistol. Many people aren’t confident loading, unloading, and firing their pistol because they haven’t been trained properly. We will help you overcome these fears and become a responsible and safe firearm owner.
We offer classes as well as private lessons. Basic pistol is ideal for young shooters and novice shooters. We would be happy to offer classes to your church group, scout group (16 years and older), or ladies group. The Basic Pistol course runs $79 and takes just one day to complete. You will start in the classroom and end with some time at the range. In this class you will learn:
- Rules for Safe Gun Handling
- Identifying and Unloading Different Firearms
- Practical Exercises in Safe Gun Handling
- Types of Ammunition; Cleaning and Storage of Firearms
Private lessons only run $50 for 3 hours of hands-on training. For more info contact us.
