Handgun Safety & Marksmanship
This class is designed for new shooters and is the first step in the Sharp Shooting Training Program. The course will introduce students to the fundamentals of marksmanship, operation of semi-automatics and revolvers and firearm safety. The class includes a live-fire portion using .22 LR and 9mm/.38 Special firearms. All equipment and supplies provided by Sharp Shooting. This class requires a student to be at least 14 years of age and if under age 18, accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Women & Guns
This class closely follows the curriculum of Handgun Safety and Marksmanship, but is conducted in an all-female, new shooter-friendly setting. This course will teach not only the fundamentals of marksmanship, operation of semi-automatics and revolvers and live-fire manipulations, but will expand upon female-specific topics such as carry options, firearms selection, use of force considerations and other topics. This class includes an extended live-fire session to allow for more one on one instruction.
Firearms Ownership And You
Most, if not all, new firearms owners, are disappointed in the lack of clear, concise information regarding the laws governing firearms. Safe storage, concealed/open carry, having firearms in vehicles, contact with law enforcement, use of force, justification for using force and a variety of other topics.

This class will bridge the gap between the Basic Handgun Safety and Women and Guns courses to the defensive, hands-on applications involving firearms. Topics covered will include marksmanship fundamentals as they apply to defensive use of handguns, malfunction clearance, reloading techniques, strong and support hand shooting techniques and an introduction to low-light shooting. Students should be prepared for moderate physical activity and two eight-hour training days. The class will be conducted in a two-day, 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM format with a one hour lunch each day. Students will be required to provide/bring a suitable handgun (9mm/.38 Special or larger unless prior approval is obtained from the Training Director), 500 rounds of FMJ/TMJ/JHP/JSP ammunition, a strong-side inside-the-waistband or belt holster (no appendix, shoulder, fanny pack/purse or ankle carry for safety reasons), at least three magazines or speedloaders, a baseball cap or hat, eye and ear protection. Students must have completed Basic Handgun Safety or Women and Guns to participate.
This NRA-sponsored introductory course teaches the fundamentals of firearms safety, marksmanship and firearms handling. Students will be introduced to these topics and then put the skills into practice using .22 LR firearms in a live-fire environment. At the conclusion of this course, students will receive the NRA Pistol Rocker, allowing them to continue into more advanced NRA courses.
