This course is for all individuals regardless of previous experience. 
In this course, students will learn firearms safety rules, proper operation of revolvers/semi-automatics pistols, ammunition knowledge and selection, selecting the right pistol for you and how to store it,  shooting fundamentals, pistol inspection and maintenance, marksmanship, and shooting range safety.
Additionally, students will complete a live fire portion and qualification while on the range with the certified instructor. For the range portion, you may bring & use your own handgun, or use ours. If you are using ours, you will be using a .22LR calibered handgun. If you use yours, you can use which ever caliber you'd like. If you use your own handgun, you must be sure to bring your own ammunition to use- 50-100 rounds of ammunition. 
Students will recieve a Basics of Pistol Shooting handbook, take a Basics of Pistol Shooting exam, and upon successful completion receive a certificate which can be used to apply for your VA Permit to carry a concealed handgun.
