Training classes to begin in Tucson and the dynamic little town of Ajo
We will teach at the Tucson parks and Rec ranges and the Virgil Ellis range in Ajo.
We will do four classes, each a step up in skill.
Safety Selection seminar. Thiscourse teaches new students the important fundamentals of safely operating a handgun. The student will begin learning with a non-lethal SIRT Laser gun, transition to a .22, and finally use a selection of larger caliber handguns. This training gives the student the opportunity to fire a number of handguns prior to purchase. For those who already own a firearm the instructors will teach you how to use it which includes a careful diagnosis of your grip, trigger pull, and sight picture. This course will give you the knowledge you need to use a handgun safely.
Legal Issues of CCW. This course goes well beyond the necessary requirements of the State of Arizona to carry a concealed weapon. Arizona Law relating to use of a handgun is covered. The instructors are senior instructors for Mas Ayoob and use his and material learned from the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network. The course includes both classroom study and range time. A written test and a handgun qualification must be passed. The test and the qualification target will be saved so they can be used as part of your defense should you ever have to use a handgun as a defensive tool to save your life or the life of other innocents.
