Regardless of your age, gender or experience, completing the 250 pistol class will change your life!! You will be well grounded in the Modern Technique of the Pistol, including marksmanship, gun handling and mindset.

Students emerge stronger, more alert, and conditioned to respond appropriately to any threat.
