Selecting and Using a Handgun for Self-Defense and/or Target Shooting

In this class, we have a "hands-on" examination of many popular models and styles of handguns, both revolvers and semi-automatics, to help you make informed decisions on what might be best for YOU if you are thinking of making a handgun purchase. This is a great way to fine tune your choices before you venture out to the store to make a purchase. You will learn what might work for you, and as important, what might not work for you.  We will review basic safety issues, and the fundamentals for proper safe handling and shooting, including loading and unloading, grip, stance, aiming, trigger control etc., all done in a safe controlled environment. Next comes the fun part! Using some of the models you have examined, we will load them with laser cartridges. This is a non firing (i.e. no bullet) 100% safe round of ammunition that "shoots" a laser pulse at electronic targets. By doing this you will quickly learn how to safely use the controls of several handguns, and can shoot them in a virtual real-world setting. Since you are "shooting" real handguns, the experience is the same as would be at live-fire range, except there is no noise or recoil to distract you from learning. Again, being that there is no projectile...no bullet...this is a 100% SAFE activity. (1 session)
