This class assumes you know very little about firearms… hence the reference to the “Dummies” Series. It’s a good idea to take this class prior to our Pistol series.  However, some of our seasoned clients still learn a lot from this class!  This course is also a prerequisite for the NRA Basic Pistol Qualification.

This class is an online course via Zoom.
