Learn to Shoot

This class is suitable for absolute beginners, but also for people who have shot just a little, but are still not comfortable with it, or who plan to take the LTC (CHL) class and need to learn to shoot first.

Class sizes are usually limited to 5, but may be smaller. We meet at a private range, spend some time indoors learning the safety rules, how guns work, ammo types, action types, and the fundamentals of shooting, then go on the range and shoot. Your experience is closely supervised with safety and success in mind.

If you don't have your own handgun, we can provide guns and a selection of ammo for $35.00. You will get to try several guns in different calibers and sizes, usually including .380, 9mm, .45, and snub-nosed revolver.

If you are bringing your own gun, please bring 50 rounds of ammo as well.

Length: 3 hrs
Cost: $85.00 (No range fee)
Private sessions are available

Cost: $ (Each person) (Range fee is included; you must supply your own handgun and ammo)

Defensive Shooting

Primarily for somewhat intermediate shooters, this is an introduction to Tactical Training, and is offered usually in groups of 1-4. Most people who own a handgun practice at commercial ranges (which usually disallow holsters), standing in one spot, shooting at one target from a ready position, and using slow, deliberate fire to maximize marksmanship. While this is a necessary step in your development, it does little good when you are faced with an armed carjacker in a parking garage.

This course is taught entirely at a private outdoor range NE of McKinney. Students draw and fire at FBI targets, do rapid-fire and timed drills for marksmanship, shoot at multiple targets, and reload during timed drills. Students will also learn flash-picture acquisition. The goal is to maximize speed, accuracy, and efficiency.

Most civilians respond poorly in a crisis situation, because they have not trained enough to have muscle-memory instincts. Changes in adrenalin levels and blood pressure will cause fine motor skills to dissipate, leaving only muscle-memory between you and disaster. This course is intended to give you the tools and confidance to develop those instincts.

Participants should have the following equipment:

* Handgun (semi or revolver) (any caliber) (longer barrel is better)
* Holster (OWB or IWB) (not required)
* 2 magazines (semi) or speedloader (revolver)
* 100 rounds of ammo

Cost: $80.00 (One person) (Range fee is included; you must supply your own handgun and ammo)
