First and foremost you will learn how to safely handle a gun.  Gun, pistol, firearm; these words are all interchangeable to some degree. We explain- in plain English - the nomenclature and functionality of pistol parts as well as ammunition types, parts and functions. We'll also review for comparison the difference of pistols versus rifles and shotguns.

 

You will learn by doing.  In a safe and friendly atmosphere with NO LIVE ammunition, you'll learn how to:

  • Safely handle multiple types of pistols
  • Load, and unload multiple types of pistols (with dummy ammo)
  • Identify what gun takes which type of ammunition
  • Safely store firearms in your home
  • Safely move firearms 
     

We cover both semiautomatic pistols and revolvers.  We explain the meaning of and purpose behind specific firearm attributes. We'll explain and demistify terms or words you may have heard like:

  • Magazines, cylinders and clips
  • Single-action and double-action 
  • Safeties
  • Hammer-fire and striker-fire
  • Cockers and decockers
  • and much more

 

This class on its own will NOT certify you for your concealed carry license. You will need a separate , companion class with a live-fire exercise to receive certification to submit for a concealed carry license.  See our Concealed Carry Class offerings.
