If you're new to the world of firearms, you might be feeling a little overwhelmed. Don't worry, we've got you covered. Our basic firearms fundamentals course is designed to give you all the information you need to get started with self-defense firearms, specifically handguns.


We know that some of the jargon and terminology can be confusing - that's why we've made sure to explain everything in a way that's easy to understand. We want to demystify the world of firearms and make it accessible to everyone, regardless of your level of expertise.


If you're considering getting your concealed handgun permit, we'll also cover everything you need to know before taking that step. And if you're just starting out with handguns, this course is the perfect introduction to get you started on your journey of self-protection.


This course has been structured to ensure a comfortable classroom and range environment. Classroom and range are located in the same building. This course is fast paced and is an optional prerequisite to  the three Personal and Home Protection courses we offer to help you understand the basics of firearms ownership, safety, and how it applies to home- or self-defense. The facilities are handicapped-accessible. 

So why wait? Sign up today and take the first step towards becoming an informed and responsible gun owner.
