Intro to Handguns and Safety 4hrs/$125
This course is designed with the beginner shooter in mind. All safety equipment, ammunition and firearms will be provided. The goal of this course is to introduce the student to various types and calibers of firearms to help them decide which firearm is best for them. The class consists of 3 hours of classroom learning and about 1 hour of personal training range time. Each student will schedule 1 hour of personal range time after the class, at their convenience.
The class covers:
Safe gun handling and firing
Cleaning and storage of firearms
Selecting the right firearm (size, type, and caliber)
Selecting the right ammo for your firearm
An overview of holster types

This class is a great way to introduce new shooters (of any age) to the shooting sports in a safe and controlled environment. My way of teaching is "you have to learn to crawl, before you learn to walk" Many new shooters are taught poorly with big caliber firearms, without any safety equipment and no training as to the safe handling of firearms. My goal is to keep new shooters shooting, not scare them away thinking that all guns have "too much recoil". This class will allow each shooter to try many calibers and show how the proper grip and technique will allow them to manage the recoil of any caliber.
Intermediate Handgun 4hrs/$100
We recommend this course to anyone who is interested in getting a concealed carry permit for any state. I remind my clients that a CCW is an ADVANCED course. The goal of a CCW class is to teach laws, scenarios and test for proficiency with a firearm. If you aren't proficient with a firearm and ready to carry your firearm immediately after receiving your permit, then you need training to get you ready. This course will do that! Give yourself the tools and training necessary to gain the confidence to carry your firearm and USE it if, heaven forbid, you should need to. This course will teach you:
Drawing from a holster
Slide lock reloads
Engaging multiple targets
Shooting to STOP the threat
Engaging targets with both dominant and weak hand
Shooting from behind cover
This 4 hour course requires students to have their own firearms, holster, at least 2 magazines with carrier, a cover garment and at least 100 rounds of ammunition. It is also a pre-requisite for the Tactical I class.
Tactical Handgun I 4hrs/$150
This course is designed to take the student to a higher level of handgun shooting. It focuses on advanced drills, movements and fast, while accurate, combat shooting. Develop skills that may become necessary when carrying your firearm concealed for your protection. This course requires a per-requisite of the Intermediate Handgun course which teaches the foundations that we build off of in Tactical I.
In this course you will learn:
Shooting on the move
Reloading on the move
Proper use of cover and concealment
Slicing the pie
Shooting from multiple positions
Learning to scan and access
Use of flashlight while shooting
This is a four hour course all taught at the range. Each student will need their firearm, a holster, 3 magazines. a magazine carrier, cover garment, and at least 150-200 rounds of ammunition.
Shoot safe, shoot straight, and we'll see you on the range! -Gary Shank
