LESSON OPTIONS

Small Group Training
$150.00

This is a 3+ hour block of instruction for individuals who do not mind attending training with like-minded strangers. The course is limited to 3 students to ensure that each shooter receives the attention and training that he or she deserves. The course will proceed even if only one student is enrolled in the class.

This course is designed to provide the students with a solid grasp of firearm safety and usage. Topics discussed include:

  • Confirmation of student goals and expectations
  • Georgia law on weapons carry and self-defense
  • Parts and maintenance of pistols
  • Fundamentals of shooting
  • Communicating with law enforcement
  • Live fire exercises on the range

Students will shoot revolvers, semi-automatic pistols, and pistols equipped with miniaturized pistol optics. This will provide an overview of most popular pistol types on the market.

Students seeking to purchase their first firearm may use any of the 50+ range guns to determine what firearm is appropriate for his/her needs. Students with personally-owned firearms are encouraged to use that gun during training.

The lesson cost includes the use of all firearms and ammunition in .22 long rifle. Students are responsible for any range fees (if not members) and the cost of ammunition used in the range guns (if any).
