First Steps Handgun

Are you curious about firearms?    Maybe afraid of them? Whether you intend to buy a gun or not, this class is a gentle introduction, one-on-one, to how a particular gun works, how to handle it, how to load and unload it, and how to shoot it, all with a very strong emphasis on safety.  You may choose a revolver or a semi-automatic pistol; AWARE will supply the gun, ammunition and all other equipment.

This course covers an introduction to pistol safety, parts, and operation, an introduction to ammunition, fundamentals of pistol shooting, cleaning, and storage.  At least an hour will be devoted to shooting that pistol on the range. 


This class does NOT satisfy the training requirements for a firearms license in Massachusetts.
