Basic Handgun Course | Learn to Shoot


This course is designed to provide a hands-on introduction to the safe operation of a handgun for Texas residents aged 18 and older. It is perfect for those that have never held a handgun, new owners, and those looking to refresh old skills. This private training lasts about an hour and a half. It will include both discussion and range time. We will focus on safety, shooting fundamentals, and operation. Upon completion of this course, the student will be more comfortable using a handgun and easily capable of moving on to the License To Carry class.

The course fee includes the instruction, targets, eye and hearing protection, the use of a semi-auto .22 caliber handgun, and up to 100 rounds of practice ammo. You are welcome to bring your own handgun and ammo. Depending on how comfortable you are with your progress, we may complete your License To Carry range qualification that same day and save you some time when taking our License To Carry course.
