Things you need to bring to the class:

  • Valid Driver License or Identification Card
  • Pen or pencil
  • Note pad
  • Eye protection
  • Ear protection
  • Handgun(s) that you want to shoot (semi-automatic or double action revolver)

In order to maintain a safe and sterile training environment, we ask that you do NOT bring any ammunition onto the range until told to do so (leave in your vehicle). We will be using training and real firearms to practice (before live fire) and do not want to have live ammunition introduced into the training environment until it is time for live fire. You will be instructed on when to bring your ammunition onto the range.
