How To Get the Most From Firearms Training Classes

In America, the right to bear arms is written in the Constitution. It allows citizens to legal carry firearms without fear of reprisal. However, in many states this law is slightly amended. Called concealed carry laws, it allows a person to carry a firearm only with a permit. A person can usually get a concealed carry permit after taking a basic handgun training course. The short guide below describes what usually happens at a firearm class.

  • First, do your homework. Since you will be learning about gun safety and security, as well as how to properly shoot a weapon, make sure you are learning from a professional. Many schools are taught by people who train law enforcement in combat techniques and have a weapon certification.
  • Many classes will begin by going over the parts of a gun and explaining the different types and parts. Three main types are handguns, rifles and shotguns, but often a class will just focus on one of the above. They will explain different bullet types and instruct you on how to load a bullet.
  • If you are taking the class for self-defense or your own security, you will most likely be learning with a handgun. Rifles and shotguns are usually reserved for people who enjoy hunting while handguns are smaller and easily carried. A good instructor will also demonstrate ideal places on the body to carry a handgun in case of an event when you should ever need to use it.
  • Finally, classes will take place at a shooting range, allowing you to practice with your gun by shooting at a target. You will likely need to wear protective eye wear and earplugs. An instructor will advise you on your shooting style and give you advice to help you improve at hitting the target.
