2022 Course Schedule

18 Sept
16 Oct

Pistol courses are conducted on range #3 using a wide variety of .38 Special Revolvers and 9mm pistols. All shooting is done between 7 and 20 yards. We begin the morning with .38 special revolvers learning single action and then double action shooting techniques then moving on to 9mm pistols in several different trigger action types, including single, double action, exposed and enclosed hammer and striker fired.

After the course material is covered, we open up the “Historical Tickle Trunk” and bring out a number of Revolvers and pistols from as early as 1900 including the famous P-08 Luger and several other interesting pieces from history.
