Handgun Training

The handgun is the primary weapon for law enforcement professionals and the armed citizen alike. We believe that a solid foundation built on the fundamentals of marksmanship is a must for increasing the survivability of an armed confrontation. The handgun class we offer will introduce, develop and sharpen those fundamentals in shooters of all experience levels.
