Share Button

Our first Handgun Skill Building class was a great success!… so we have decided to teach it again in November!

Handgun Skill Building – Level 1

Handgun Skill Building – Full Day Range Class – Level 1

This is a full day on a great OUTDOOR range, working on handgun skills beyond what was taught in your basic
CCW/Concealed-Carry class.

Class will take place on November 9th from 8:30 am to 5:30pm

This class covers the foundational skills needed to be a competent handgun shooter; and prepares students to seek further training; as well as enhance each person’s ability to defend themselves with their handgun, should the need occur.

At the conclusion of this course, you will understand the essential skills covered in this course (listed below), be able to articulate why each of these skills are important and be able to enact a purposeful practice plan to continually improve after they leave this course.


The instructors we are top notch!  Each and every one is a professional, certified instructor from the NRA, USCCA, FLETC or another professional organization.  All of us are dedicated to teaching a SAFE class.  You will receive individual attention from a wonderful staff!
