“Handgun” is a broad term that describes a variety of firearms. This course breaks those down into categories (like revolver, semi-automatic, 1911; calibers) and discusses their respective attributes. This course will review handgun functions, sizes, and what is right for you. We will also review the fundamentals of marksmanship and help you find the right handgun for you!


The 1911 is one of the most famous pistols and is revered by many firearms enthusiasts. We have merged our 1911 Seminar with Handgun 101 and will spend a portion of this class discussing the 1911 and its exciting history.
