With all of our firearms classes, it must be legal for you to possess a firearm.  This class is not for the person who has never handled a firearm before.  We expect you be familiar with the handgun you bring and be able to operate it safely.  If you have never used a handgun before we strongly reccomend that you take the NRA Basic Pistol class, which we also offer.  If it is obvious to the instructor that you have never handled the handgun you are using or using any handgun in an unsafe manner, you will be asked to leave the class.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions about this.

What is needed for class

All that is needed for the class is a good attitude and a willingness to learn.  If you have your own eye and ear protection, you may bring it.  If you don't have your own it is provided by the North Metro Range at no extra cost.  If you have the firearm youd like to use, please bring it. If you don't have one of your own, you can rent one from us for $20.
