I supply the firearms used for this class. You will need to bring a minimum 60 rounds of rimfire 22LR ammo. We will use 22 LR only for live fire which will have little or no recoil so students can focus on technique thus helping eliminate bad habits from the start. You may bring your own firearm but you will be required to shoot both a revolver and semi-automatic pistol. We will dry-fire several firearms of different actions, sizes and calibers. Larger caliber firearms may be fired after the formal training.
