Do I need a handgun for class? If you own a handgun, it is best to train on your own. If not, we provide use of classroom guns for a rental fee INCLUDING  ammo ($10-25 depending on caliber, .22-.45).
 
What is included and what do I need to bring? Range fees and all materials are INCLUDED, BYO ammo (30 rounds and ANY ONE handgun) – we have ammo available for sale if you cannot find it (only for qualification, not selling ammo otherwise- price depends on caliber): SCHEELS and Sportsman’s are usually stocked with practice and defensive ammo. You can BYO eye and ear protection or we will provide it (no charge). Outside food and drink is okay to bring into class.

We offer limited weekday classes that begin early enough to apply.
We limit the number of reservations for those planning to apply the same day, which has been successful so far. There is NO guarantee that applications will be accepted if they are too busy (walk-ins only).
 
What if the class is FULL? 
If we fill, we start a wait list and offer a reservation for an available class as a backup plan.
