Handgun Skill Builder
Pistol Practice Sessions
Handgun Skill Builder classes are now divided into two different levels: Fundamental Skills and Intermediate Skills.
Handgun Skill Builder classes make use of dry-fire practice and live-fire practice in short sessions to target skills such as reloading, use of cover, fundamentals, movement, etc. These 1-hour practice sessions are led by an instructor who will teach at the pace and skill level of the individual students. The exact material will vary and will be highly flexible – some of the exact skills may be posted prior to the course. Handgun Skill Builder classes will end with a live-fire session on the range.
Students should be comfortable with their handgun and must have completed the Intro to Handgun class, CCW class, or have similar experience and confidence to shoot safely around others. Higher level students will also be challenged as they get back to the basics with increased demands.
