Q & A

Top Frequently Asked Questions

Which Class is Right for Me? 

Generally speaking, start our book from Chapter 1 and learn from scratch; start with our Pistol-I module.  If you are all so new to firearms in general, our Safe Start program may suit you well.  

Most importantly, you should be completely submerged in learning the basic fundamental which we pride ourselves in teaching.

If you insist on attending our Intermediate and Advanced courses without taking our basic level courses, we will send you a shooting standard and you must meet those standards before being selected to participate. 


Is there a way for students to rent a firearm? 

Yes rentals are available for fee. Please inquire before the class. Often rental options are incorporated into the checkout process. Simply select "Need Rental" option. Such option is not available in higher echelon of courses. Most shooters at higher level own and train with their own firearms. 


Private Training

What is the differences between private training and pistol courses?

 Private training is just that – private and 100% customizable depending on your need. Any classes have set curriculum and you’ll learn among others which is important to learn the range command and safety within a group.Prices are also different. Obviously private lessons are more ($60 per hour) with 2 hour minimum, 4 hour max.  Classes usually run 8 hrs and have set prices as well.

Is it possible to sign up for a class without the prerequisite?

Yes. As long as the student understands what they are missing. Our modules are well designed and we take each shooters step by step to allow them to become a proficient shooter. We have set curriculum and we break down each technique and concept for the students to understand.  There are no classes too easy or too basic for any beginning shooters.  Having said that, yes a student may skip a class and jump into higher modules as long as the student is confident that they are up to the level of the class wanting to attend.  The student must be fully confident with his/her level of safety.

Gear Selection

I don't have much items listed on the required gear section. Can you help?

You must have everything listed on the Required Gear section listed in each of the courses. Gear selection is very important and you must have the right stuff. Proper holster is essential for safe and effective drawing. Magazine pouch should be practical as well. We suggest a few companies that manufacture holsters for various handgun types. Email us for detail.
