YOU HAVE PURCHASED A NEW HANDGUN AND PLAN TO CARRY IT OR KEEP IT IN THE HOME FOR SELF PROTECTION. We can help you learn how to use it safely and effectively and it doesn’t matter if you have never fired a handgun before or if you are an experienced shooter. Defensive use of a hand gun in a high stress situation requires a different type of training that is totally different from target shooting. 99% of our students say that they should have taken this class sooner and would recommend it.
