This 3-4 hour workshop teaches students the fundamentals of pistol operation and use. Students can expect to learn: *The rules of gun safety and how those rules are applied *Gun range etiquette *Parts of a semi-automatic handgun and revolver ( including action types) *Identifying a loaded/unloaded firearm *Loading and making ready to use ** Slide racking techniques *Unloading *Proper pistol grip *Recoil management *Sight alignment *Trigger operation *Marksmanship The workshop provides the opportunity to handle various pistols and apply their education throughout the class. I provide each student with guided one-on-one instruction during the shooting portion, with great emphasis on building good safety habits. At the end of the workshop, I disassemble one of my own firearms and demonstrate cleaning of that firearm. The workshop is held outside, under cover at Volusia County Gun and Hunt Club in New Smyrna Beach, FL. Please be sure to have some type of eye protection on when entering the gun range and all while on property. Wear something appropriate for the weather, and bring drinks and snacks if you would like to. If you do not have a firearm, you will be provided firearms with ammunition to complete the workshop. If you have a firearm (pistol), it is recommended that you bring it. Please bring any firearms to the class unloaded, and secured in either a gun bag, case, or box. No student is allowed to handle a firearm unless it is on the firing line and ONLY with instructor assistance. One box of 50 round count of ammunition is plenty sufficient for your firearm. To secure your seat, you may make prepayment through the "Payment Portal" on my main page or through Paypal or VenMo under Shooting With Sherry.
