Intro to Handguns Class Description

If you are new to handguns, or you simply want a refresher in firearm fundamentals, this is the class for you! It’s designed to be a fun, low-stress learning environment with complete student interaction. Students participate in “dry” drills in the classroom and will demonstrate safe gun handling practices while covering a multitude of topics relevant to handguns.

What to bring

Bullseye Shooting Academy will supply guns, ammo, targets, as well as eye, and ear protection for your class. However, if you have a pistol or revolver that you would like to bring to your class, we encourage you to do so. It must be in a secure case (not a holster) and unloaded. If you do bring a gun, please also bring ammunition in a separate box / container. If you have your own eye and ear protection that you want to use, you are welcome to bring that as well. Lastly, we encourage you to bring a pen and paper as we cover a lot of information.
