Each student will be required to fire 2 courses of fire resulting in a total of 50 rounds throughout the duration of the course.  Furthermore, in this course you will learn about several aspects related to firearms including but not limited to:

  • Firearm safety
  • Fundamentals of handgun shooting

  • The safe and proper way to present a weapon to another person
  • Correct Loading and Unloading procedures
  • How to properly clear malfunctions

  • A baseball type cap or hat with a brim or bill
  • 100 rounds of factory ammunition for each type of weapon you want to qualify with whether it be a semi-automatic or are revolver.  We're sorry, but the use of reloaded ammunition is not permitted in this course.  We sell ammunition if you'd like us to pick you up some please let us know on your registration form.  We must know in advance in order to be able to accommodate you.   

It is not necessary to have a holster, magazine pouches or any other related equipment.  You will not be required to draw from concealment or draw from a holster.  Due to restrictions set forth by C.L.E.E.T. regulations and the State of Oklahoma, this course is not designed to teach you how to shoot.   We do, however, offer several additional classes specifically designed to do just that.........teach you how to shoot quickly and accurately.
