Intro to Handgun ($150)

This class is for anyone who has never shot a handgun before (or maybe just not in quite awhile) and wants to begin their education right. We begin with class time where we go over safety, range etiquette, grip, stance, sight picture & trigger pull. Then we finish the class on the range where we put these skills into motion. Safety gear, ammo & gun rentals are included, however if you already own a handgun you are welcome to bring it cased and unloaded.

License to Carry ($100 - $118)

this class certifies you to carry a handgun on your person in the State of Texas. This is NOT a beginner shooter course and Intro to Handgun or a one on one lesson with one of our trainers is a recommended prerequisite for this class if you have never shot before. In this lesson, we go over the laws surrounding your ability to carry on your person as well as a 50 round shooting proficiency.

If you would like a private lesson or have any questions please reach out to us at and we’ll be happy to help you.
