Upgrade Your Pistol / Handgun Skills with the Intermediate Class
This class is for the basic class graduate or anyone with significant experience with hand guns. A basic working knowledge of firearms, firearm safety and shooting fundamentals are a prerequisite.
We will be reinforcing all of the safety principles that we teach in our basic class, as many shooters take the basic class, and then allow a substantial amount of time to pass before they continue. Being a perishable skill, safe gun handling must be practiced and reinforced.
The Intermediate Pistol class – is designed for those who want increase their knowledge, experience, and skill level with hand guns, either their own, or if the student has not purchased one yet, they may rent one of ours.
Students who have taken our Basic Course have learned quite a bit about the many handguns available on today’s market, the differences between them, how to determine which ones fit them, and which ones make good choices. A natural next step is the all-important purchase. Once this is accomplished, the new handgun owner must become intimately familiar with their new firearm, and master it fully.
For those who have not settled on a particular handgun, we offer those in our sizable collection for them to try, at a minimal charge. The student will need to supply the ammunition.
There are many factors that can keep a shooter from achieving the level of accuracy that they desire, and, because of our experience, we know them all. In addition, we have a “Bag of Tricks” developed over decades for dealing with these habits and errors, to facilitate their elimination, thereby allowing our students to progress to the level that they are capable of.
The safe and effective use of holsters and magazine pouches along with expedient magazine changes will be discussed, demonstrated, and practiced on the range.
A supervised and coached live fire exercise ensures students properly grasp all learning objectives, including improved accuracy, timed shooting, and marksmanship at greater distances.
Speed and accuracy are the basics of the time spent on the range. Lecture will be about one and half hours and range time will be about three and half hours. Students should bring 300 rounds of ammunition, their own hand gun or (rent one of ours), an appropriate holster, magazine pouch, and at least three magazines or speed loaders. This class will help you become a more skillful shooter while increasing your confidence.
We can provide ear and eye protection, although students are encouraged to bring their own if they have them.
We conduct this class once a month (see the Calendar of Courses) at the Lytle Creek Firing Line Range. The range is at the very end of the paved road, which is about 12 pleasant minutes from the 15 Freeway. Classes begin at 8am (9am in the winter) when the range opens, and our staff will be waiting for you when you drive in the gate.
Upon Successful Completion of this class a Certification Card will be awarded from Inland Firearms Training. This course will allow you to pursue more advanced levels of training.
Also dependent upon the scheduled course start & stop time you may wish to bring snacks and water for yourself.
