What You Will Need To Bring To Class

YOU CANNOT QUALIFY ON THE RANGE WITHOUT THESE ITEMS

Your handgun [semi-automatic (recommended) or revolver] of at least .32 caliber (9mm and .380 are acceptable). DO NOT BRING YOUR WEAPON INTO CLASS. Leave it secured in your vehicle out of sight until we arrive at the range. All weapons and magazines should be UNLOADED before approaching the range area. An accidental discharge while loading, unloading or handling your weapon may be grounds for not receiving proficiency certification.

    • All handguns should be in good repair and have no modifications that would make the weapon less safe. (please make sure your weapon is working properly and will operate without malfunction PRIOR to the class)
    • Make sure you are familiar with your handgun.
    • Make sure you zero your handgun as there is no time allotted in class for this.

    NO RELOADED AMMUNITION WILL BE ALLOWED.
