This is our most basic class. We begin in the classroom, but by mid morning we will be on the pistol range learning the FUNdamentals of marksmanship skills. Once we have an understanding of what to do to make a bullet hit our intended target, we will begin layering on more skills such as learning to safely draw from the holster and (very importantly) safely reholster. The day will culminate with an exercise designed to simulate an actual street robbery attempt. Expect a mix of classroom and range time throughout the day, to avoid both learner’s and shooter’s fatigue.
This class will be held at the Oklahoma City Gun Club Main Clubhouse and Training Range (a very comfortable and well appointed training venue). The cost of the class is $150.00 (on sale now from $200.00) which includes a $25.00 range fee for those who are not members of the Oklahoma City Gun Club.
Please bring your reliable handgun (we have some 9mm handguns with matching holsters/magazine carriers available to rent for $25.00/day), at least 1 extra magazine (more is better), a rigid (stays open when the pistol has been removed) outside the waistband holster (Serpa holsters or other holsters that require pressing any sort of latch with the trigger finger cannot be used, please do not bring one of these; for holster guidance, please just inquire, we are here to help), a belt at least 1.5 inch wide that fits you when the holster is attached. Wear comfortable closed toe shoes, a high necked shirt (polo type shirt that will button up or a close fitting t-shirt are fine), and a baseball cap. If you have shooting glasses and hearing protection, please bring those. Please bring 100 rounds of ammunition for your handgun (we may shoot less, but we won’t shoot more, or if we do, we can provide you some in the common calibers).
Please check the weather the day before class and dress appropriately. Range time is all outdoors and can be up to 3 hours at a time. Please pack a lunch (we will have a working lunch in the classroom) and plenty of hydration. Please do not indulge in alcohol or other drugs the night before class (certainly not the morning of either :^) ).
