What to bring with you!

The single most important thing for you to bring is ……attitude!

Knowledge, skill, and attitude are the keys to safe and responsible firearms handling and range operations.

While we are very proficient in teaching knowledge and skills, attitude, which is the most important element, is something only you can posses or develop. By attending this class you do show an interest in developing or honing this attitude! That is to be commended!

……paper and pencil, highlighters are encouraged as well! Training materials are supplied.
