FST Basic Pistol Class incl. CCW                     4 hours  

One hour to cover laws and decision making pertaining to concealed carry.  This is plenty of time to cover the course material and you will leave with a good understanding. I don't want to waste your valuable time with anecdotes.   Hands on experience handling the gun safely and effectively is more important.

Basic function and safety.  This includes the names and purpose of the components of pistols and ammunition as well as basic rules of safety.  Pistols are pretty simple machines and firearm safety comes with hands on experience more than lecture. 

Basics of sight shooting.  This is also called "slow fire" and involves carefully aligning the sights with the target,  and slowly applying pressure to the trigger so you get the most accurate shot possible.  This is the most effective way of teaching the basics of grip, stance, sight alignment and trigger control.   We shoot steel and clay targets at 20 to 25  yards.

The remainder of the class will concentrate on point shooting using the front sight.  This is a much more useful type of training being much faster and almost as accurate as sight shooting.   This is also done with steel or clay targets against a dirt embankment which is much more effective than paper targets for getting instant feedback.    

Soon you will be shooting quickly and accurately while the constant manipulation of the gun will help develop the habits necessary for safe carrying and effective use of the pistol or revolver. 

At the end of the class I will present you with your training certificate which you will need to present to your local sheriff to obtain your CCW permit.

Advanced Pistol                                                 4 Hours

​The focus is on shooting and again, the entire class is from the holster.

Shooting on the move.As it says moving forward, backward and sideways while shooting.

Using cover and concealment and understanding the difference between the two.

Shooting from positions.  Kneeling, sitting or laying down.

Long range shooting.  Shoot 100, 200 yards or more with your pistol to see how you do.  Probably much better than you would expect.
