Introduction To Our Beginner Handgun Training Class

Are you new to firearms and uncomfortable or apprehensive about learning the ins and outs of firearms? If you take my basic handgun shooting course, I will make you more knowledgeable and confident with firearms in a fun and stress-free environment. Every single student in my Basic Handgun Shooting Course has been “trained up” to the level required to pass my CCW Permitting Course.

Additionally, my basic course prepares brand new shooters for our Intermediate Defensive Handgun Shooting Class where they will learn law enforcement defensive tactics. Learning these tactical skills typically result in an effective shooting rate of 3 to 4 rounds a second on target.

About Our Beginner Handgun Shooting Classes

So, at this point, you might be asking yourself, “What exactly is this course about?  What am I going to learn?” While I am fully versed in the instruction manuals and NRA standard guidelines I choose to implement a training model that is exclusive to the individual student and class.

These classes at DefenseSHOT are very fun, effective, and relaxed. Students can be as young as ten years old.  Students under 18 require a student/parent training team to enroll. I use my prior experience in law enforcement, Nationally Certified Firearms Instructor training, and youth pastor duties to accommodate all levels of learning and make my course a value-added experience.

I do not simply repeat what is in the official course content and read out of a book. I will address individual needs and customize how I approach the learning experience on a case by case basis. I will take you to my private firing range secluded in beautiful El Dorado County. This is where a majority of my students, who were relatively new to general firearms (never having shot before), have experienced a stress-less day of exciting and enjoyable learning.

This course will educate you in all for the basics of firearms and firearm safety. It is my primary goal to dispel all of the “hype and horror” that so often encompasses the idea of firearm ownership in today’s society. When you leave my firearms class, you will have a detailed understanding of firearms, firearms operation and maintenance.

I will give you a detailed understanding of the current local, state, and federal firearms laws. The most important benefits of taking my class are that the environment and my approach are proven to be very relaxed, fun, and informative. I work diligently to ensure that your experience is value-added, fun, and stress-free. I will customize the training to fit each, individual student to get a detailed understanding of the different models of handguns and the pros and cons of each.

We will have a 2 hours classroom instruction, and a one hour live, firing range exercises to get “over the stigma” of handguns and handgun ownership. Once you have finished my course, you will have a better and more confident understanding of the use, ownership, and mechanics of firearms. You will also be more educated on firearms laws at all levels.

With My Basic Handgun Shooting Course, You Will Receive:

  1. Two-Hour Long Professional Lecture On: Introduction To Firearms, Introduction To Federal, State, and Local Firearms Laws, & Basic Firearms Use.
  2. Safe Handling Drills, Such As: Introductory Drills Using Model Handguns, Live Drills With Real Handguns.
