DO NOT bring a firearm! Your instructor will provide you with a firearm and ammunition.
The only time guns are to be loaded is at the firing line of the gun range, after your instructor has directed you to load. All other times they are to be completely unloaded.
Items to bring to the range include:
- Ear and eye protection.
- An auto-loader or speed-loader if preferred, but note: you must show your instructor you can successfully manually load and unload your firearm as part of the range requirement.
- Comfortable (range of motion) clothes. No V-necks or low-cut shirts.
- Flat-soled shoes with good traction and support that completely enclose your feet. No flip-flops, sandals or open footwear.
- Snacks and drinks are permitted but will not be allowed at the firing line.
While on the range, hands-on firearm usage/manipulation instruction is provided as necessary or to the student’s level. Basic marksmanship is taught: stance, grip, sight alignment, breath control, trigger control, and follow-through are highlighted as fundamentals to your accuracy.
