These are the firearms students will shoot during the class



During the class students will be instructed on the operation, handling, and shooting of several handguns.


I participated in a class today. The instructor, Dan Donahue, was outstanding. He exemplified what a good instructor is all about. I’ve taken many classes over the years (not necessarily in firearms). However, in comparing this to others classes I’ve taken, this is by far one of the best. I look forward to attending many more classes.
