This Class includes firearms and ammunition rental! Everything you need to learn to use a handgun! We always recommend you use your own handgun to take this course but we have the ability to rent you at no charge nearly any caliber of handgun that you like!. If you want to use our .22 caliber pistols to learn with their will be no charge. If you would like another standard caliber (think .380, 9mm, .40, .45. or .38 Spc), the gun rental is still free, we just have to charge $40 for the 50 cartridges you will need to complete the course.

This two-day, 8-hour course will begin in the classroom where you will be taught the basics of handguns and ammunition. We will also begin to learn about the fundamentals of pistol shooting with REAL firearms in the classroom.


Meet us at the designated location to learn pistol nomenclature, ammunition fundamentals, how to load, unload, grip, aim and shoot your handgun safely!

The class will meet at The Hilton Garden Inn, 5050 Bechelli Lane Redding, CA 96002. 1 PM-5 PM.

The range training will focus on the safe and effective use of a handgun. We also have our very popular Basic Defensive Pistol Course being taught on this date and this is sometimes the next logical step in training for those who have a desire to learn how to use their firearm for personal protection eventually. Ask your instructor to take a look at this class while they are training.
