Intro to Defense

Basic Skills is a Low Stress Hands-On Class with a firearm.

Introduction to Defense

Cost is: $75 plus Range Fee.
Class training starts promptly at 9am and ends when the student is satisfied with their learning experience.

While this class is not required to advance to higher levels, many students find this added training helps them develop more confidence. Plus the added hands-on experience provides more knowledge and comfort in handling a handgun.

Think of this as an extension of your basic CWL class… far more detailed class information with fully supervised shooting time and an introduction to Defensive Shooting Skills.

You set your own pace on the range and adjust your own difficulty as you progress.

Your confidence level will soar with this class!

This class is perfect for the student that need a refresher with added knowledge and added skills to get back into training.

We recommend at least 100 rounds of quality ammunition. More is better as you will have additional time to work on your skills on your own with a Range Safety Officer / Instructor helping at all times. Most students easily shoot 150 to 200 rounds during the afternoon range time. It’s your choice…

We finish the day using Defensive Style shooting to get you ready for the next level of training.
