We assist you with the application process. Targets are provided at no charge. Eye/ear protection are also provided at no additional charge, or you may bring your own. You pay no separate range fee.

Note: We do not sell ammunition. If you bring your own handgun, you will need to supply your own ammo.

If you do not have a handgun, you can rent one (including ammo) from us when you take the class.

Rreference study materials are provided at all of our classes.

For the handgun proficiency demonstration, you will shoot a timed course of fire consisting of 50 rounds fired at a 24"x 45" silhouette target. The majority of the shots are fired at close proximity to the target. Twenty rounds are fired from the 3-yard line, 20 rounds are fired from the 7-yard line and the remaining ten rounds are fired from the 15-yard line. The majority of applicants fulfill the handgun proficiency demonstration during the first 40 rounds of fire. All firing is highly supervised with a range safety officer directing every activity and using standard range procedures and commands to insure safety.


Class fee is $80.00
