Beginner Firearms Training
Never touch a firearm before? Do you own a firearm that you have not fired in years? Are you thinking about purchasing a firearm and aren't sure what to look for? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this course is the best place to begin. Whether you are interested in recreational shooting, competition, hunting, gun collecting, historical reenactment, home safety, or personal protection - the basics are where to start!
