Dry Fire Pistol Fundamentals:  This 4-hour workshop would be ideal for people wanting to ease their way into shooting.  As well, any of us that spend time doing correct dry-fire drills KNOW how valuable it is, and how much it improves our shooting.  Shooting from 5 yards, do you get all your hits on an 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper, but not all in the 9 and 10 ring? You will benefit from correct dry fire exercise.  Proper dry fire practice will take you to a new level of marksmanship.
 
One of the key elements of marksmanship is trigger control.  You will learn dry fire drills to dramatically improve your trigger dicipline.  Next is understanding our sight picture and alignment, and their relationships to the trigger press, and we move on from there.
 
We will discuss personal safety, gun safety, range etiquite, gun handling, loading/un-loading, malfunctions, marksmanship fundamentals, trigger control drills, drawing from a holster and learning the perfect presentation.  We will also discuss the roll of a hand gun as a defensive tool, and other self defense topics.
 
This course tuition is $75, and includes a set of high quality Snap Caps to use in class and take home after.  Please make a note of your handgun caliber when registering, 9mm, .40 S&W, .45ACP, etc..
 
Class requirements:  Preferably your every day carry firearm, holster, and at least 2 magazines.  Loaner equipment is available.
