Basic Safety Course
At 88 Tactical, we value the constitutional right to bear arms, but we also value safety and responsibility. To ensure that everyone has access to the training they need to safely handle a firearm, we’re offering multiple FREE 1-hour safety certification classes for handguns. Our free one-hour firearm essentials basic safety course is open to the public.
These courses are 100% focused on safety and will cover responsible and safe gun storage, the fundamentals of firearms safety, information about accessories, how to handle your firearm around others, and how to load, fire, handle a malfunction, and clean your firearm.
Our expert instructors will help each student become familiar with safe handling and storage of handguns. 88 Tactical recruits and retains the industry’s most experienced instructor cadre from the special operations military, law enforcement, and fire and rescue – many of whom continue to serve today.
These Firearm Essentials Basic Safety Course is offered weekly.
Students must be at least 18 years old, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. The student or parent/legal guardian signing the waiver must have a valid government issued I.D.
The Intro to Handgun and/or Intro to Carbine (AR-15) classes are more comprehensive, 3-hour introductory courses. They make great starting points, or great follow-up courses to a Firearm Essentials Basic Safety Course.
