Second Shots Pistol

October 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Instructor and student in firearm range

Second Shots Pistol is designed to build on the handgun skills introduced in our FIRST SHOTS course. It’s also a good refresher for those who are years out of practice.

Students learn more about ammunition, loading a magazine, clearing a pistol and locking the slide back, and handling malfunctions. Plus, students get the practical experience of loading and shooting a variety of handgun styles and calibers in the range.

In the range, the basics of stance, sight picture, and trigger control are emphasized to maximize success. After completing this class, participants will be prepared to safely use the range on their own.

Overall, Second Shots Pistol teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for owning and using a handgun safely. The small class size allows students to ask questions and receive individual advice.

Course covers:

  • Handgun knowledge & review safe handling
  • Review fundamentals of handgun shooting
  • Ammunition knowledge
  • Actual range practice
  • A variety of pistols, ammo, and targets provided

Please bring your own eye and ear protection.

If you have your own pistol, you may bring it to use on the range (be sure to bring 50 rounds of ammunition).

Closed-neck shirts and closed-toe shoes are recommended.

For students age 16 and over. Students under age 18 MUST be accompanied by legal parent/guardian.
