Beginning Pistol Course and Introduction to Reactive Shooting


ALL of our training is done in a small class setting, no more than 2 students, in a private area away from the distractions of public ranges. Our Beginning class is much more extensive than you will find elsewhere as we feel our students deserve the best.

For beginners we offer a five to six hour course starting at 9:00 am called Beginning Pistol, the focus of the day are the Rules of Safety and the Fundamentals of Marksmanship. Additionally the student will learn the beginning steps of reactive shooting used in defensive shooting.

The class runs approximately five hours. At the beginning of the class we will discuss the Rules of Safety, Range Safety, revolvers (how they work, history and nomenclature), ammunition and semi-automatics (same as revolvers). Following this we get up and start working on stances, grip, trigger press and control, sight alignment, sight picture and eye dominance. At this point we start shooting a few rounds through a variety of handguns starting with a .22 semi-automatic working upward by caliber to the .44 magnum using ten to twelve different guns. Each student will fire approximately 70 rounds through this session with an instructor by their side working to insure good rules of safety and fundamentals of marksmanship.

After this each student will select one of our guns or use their own, purchase 50 rounds from the range and we continue shooting while working on the Rules of Safety and the Fundamentals with an Introduction to Reactive Shooting or shooting with movement.

The instructor fee is $220 per person. There is an additional $14 range fee, plus the cost of the 50 rounds just mentioned, approximately $20.


The are no prerequisites for taking this course, and the material is accessible to appropriately supervised mature children.
