You can develop confidence in the use of firearms such as semi-automatic pistols or pistol caliber carbines by individual instruction on the safe and responsible handling of guns. Classroom instruction on safety, legal issues, situational awareness, and the mechanics of firearms is the starting point for this training. Depending on your individual needs we customize a live-fire experience on one of several local ranges where you can work on stance, grip, sight alignment, and other fundamentals.
