What You'll See in Class
I will have many different handguns, holsters, safety devices, loaders, cleaning supplies, instructional and expert informational posters, books and magazines. I will also have a 'safe direction' target and give you an idea of how to create one for yourself.

My class is very interactive and there are a number of videos you'll see. You will learn how to handle any firearm safely and how to shoot them safely and proficiently. Above all, we will have fun!
