Class Description

Foundational
Firearms Training

This 20-hour class is for beginners and accomplished students with the desire to learn the complete operation of their handgun, carbine, or shotgun for self-defense. It’s designed to achieve a higher level of confidence than the introductory class, as well as the safety measures you need to handle a defensive weapon. You’ll learn through a lecture, demonstrations, and range procedures.

This class includes safe weapon handling, fundamentals of marksmanship, multiple target engagement, accuracy at multiple distances, and manipulation of the weapon system. Participants are required to have either a valid Alaska concealed carry permit, current law enforcement or military identification, or a State of Alaska background check prior to participating in this class.

Please note that each platform (handgun, carbine, shotgun) has its own, separate training course.
