Introduction to Handgun is a 4 hour course that is conducted on the range. It is specifically designed for people who have limited to no experience operating modern defensive handguns. During this course we will cover the following topics:
Properly loading and unloading magazines and speed loaders
Safely loading and unloading firearms
Proper handling and passing techniques
Discussion on the controls
Fundamentals of marksmanship
Firing controlled pairs
Introduction to Handgun is an excellent next step after completing your Concealed Handgun License course. We focus heavily on building each shooters confidence level by thoroughly explaining each skill we are teaching. This class is run at a slower pace and class sizes are much smaller to give each shooter more 1 on 1 time with instructors and coaches.
Introduction to Handgun course by itself will not work to obtain your Concealed Handgun License, however it is a great course to take in addition to your Concealed Handgun License course to build the skills you need to advance to the Tactical Handgun 1 course.
