We offer a  safety and handling course called a Private Introduction to Defensive Pistol , a one-hour one-on-one private course designed to introduce new shooters to the fundamentals of handgun operation. If you have shooting experience and would like to learn skills beyond basic introduction we have the Fundamentals of Defensive Pistol, a four-hour course that is appropriate for beginners and experienced shooters. Topics covered include: Safety, the body’s natural reaction to a fight, the balance of speed and accuracy, drawing from the holster, emergency reloads, and much more.
