Our basic handgun course consist of an introduction to the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to safely handle and use a firearm. 4 to 4.5 hours of hands-on classroom training at the Gateswood Volunteer Fire Department consisting of discussion and demonstrations of safety, gun handling, a look at various types of handguns and ammunition, the fundamentals of pistol marksmanship, various firing positions, cleaning a handgun and more. We will also feature an officer from the Baldwin County Sherrif’s office to have a presentation and a Q&A on the laws regarding concealed carry. There is no one better to discuss the regulations on this than a law enforcement agent in the field who deals with it often! After we break for lunch, will regroup for 2 to 2.5 hours at Styx River Shooting Center, where a participant will perform exercises to improve your marksmanship and get on target.
You need to provide a firearm of your choice and 1-2 boxes of ammunition. If you do not have a firearm, we have a few to loan out for a small fee, as long as we know in advance and you can purchase ammunition at the range.
