About The Class
This FREE class is for Teachers, School Administrators and School Staff as part of National Train A Teacher Day.
There will be live fire range time where we can help you learn to safely operate your firearm. If you do not currently own a firearm, class firearms are available (just pay for the ammo used). Please let us know if you would like to use a class firearm when you register.
The Basic Pistol class is for someone who wants to learn the proper way to safely and responsibly use handguns. Topics covered include: Firearm Basics (Revolver/ Pistol), What to look for when purchasing a firearm, Shooting Fundamentals, Gear and Gadgets, and Basic/Advanced Skills. At least 1.5 hours will be live fire on the range applying these shooting fundamentals.
You do not need to own a gun to take the class. Class firearms available.

How Do I Apply For My CCW License?
The State of Pennsylvania doesn’t require one to take a class prior to applying for a concealed carry permit. However, carrying a firearm without a clear understanding of State, County, and City laws relating to where/when/how one can carry and defend oneself as well as fundamental skills relating to the SAFE carrying and PROPER use of that firearm both in terms of shooting skills and defensive tactics, is irresponsible.
