After our short presentation at our Alaska Tactical training room, we will spend the balance of the day on the range. We'll begin with a dryfire (no ammunition in gun) sequence that will familiarize you with your handgun. You'll practice and know what each button and lever does, how to run the slide and press check. We will show you the best stances and grips, then show you how to align your sights and press the trigger. Then, when you know how it all works, we'll start shooting for real and assure your marksmanship is good. No worries if it's not perfect at first, we know how to fix it for you. You'll have plenty of quality trigger time to practice your newly aquired skill.
The 8 hour class will start at Alaska Tactical at 0800 for a presentation, then proceed to the range for the balance of the day.
