If you do not yet have your own firearm or cannot find one to borrow, I may be able to rent one of my firearms to you, by prior arrangement (email or phone), for proficiency testing (See Firearms For Rent) for your Proficiency Tests. Also, anyone who wants to shoot their firearms after all the proficiency tests are done, may do so. You are welcome to use a firearm borrowed from someone else or provided by you for the Proficiency Test, but it must pass inspection from one of the RSO’s.  All students need to provide at least 50 rounds of quality new ammunition (100 recommended, NO RELOADS) for the firearm they intend to qualify with. You will have the opportunity shoot targets from a variety of positions and scenarios. So, wear your grubbies and you might want to bring some knee pads and elbow pads. Should be fun!!

This presents you with the opportunity to shoot a variety of calibers before you buy your own handgun.

This course will more than likely be completed in two days. First day will be a classroom environment with the second day consisting of a range day.

Successful completion of these courses include a short test on the information covered in the course (day one), and proficiency testing (day two).
