Are you considering obtaining a CPL in the future or perhaps just purchased or are thinking about purchasing your first handgun? Have you been shooting before and think the NSSF First Shots Course may be a little too slow for your speed? If so, the Basic Handgun Course at Top Gun Shooting Sports is the right next step for you! This course is designed for the beginner shooter to learn about their firearm, how to use it safely and effectively, and considerations that all firearms owners should consider.
Through this course you will learn:
• Parts and Operation
• Ammunition Knowledge
• Safe Gun Handling
• Shooting Fundamentals
• Pistol Shooting Positions
• Considerations for Purchasing a Handgun (if you haven’t already purchased one)
• Cleaning and Storage
Getting your CPL requires a range test you must pass that will ensure you are proficient enough with your handgun before a certificate can be awarded to you. Therefore, we strongly recommend anyone who is new to the handgun world take the time to get training, no matter how in depth or basic. The shooting fundamentals and pistol shooting positions presented in this class will greatly help the new shooter become more comfortable shooting their handgun as well as helping improve your accuracy to prepare you to pass the range qualification for a CPL class or just make you a better shooter in general! If a CPL isn’t on your mind yet, this course is still a great way for any shooter to become comfortable with a new pistol. What really set this course apart from NSSF First Shots is the ability for you to get hands on instruction with a pistol you already own. The fundamentals and shooting positions are even more valuable when you’re using the exact pistol you will be using for home defense, range practice or just shooting for fun and sport. Rentals are available for this course so if you’re still thinking about making your first purchase you can still take this class and even test out the same gun you might be thinking of purchasing! The Basic Handgun Course at Top Gun Shooting Sports is a great start for any new owner or beginner on pistols.
