Idaho Basic Pistol Training


Our Idaho Basic Pistol Shooting Classes consist of one-on-one, in-person training that teaches the new and beginning student how to safely use, store, and maintain their firearm. These classes are focused entirely on the student AND the gun they own - how to use it for recreational purposes, how to store it when not in use, the correct ammunition to purchase, and how to care for the pistol and hot to optimize its performance.

We strongly recommend

those who are new or inexperienced with firearm ownership to attend this class. These classes form the basic, fundamental, essential training understanding necessary to be responsible gun owners. This is a

co-ed

training environment where all students attending these classes are treated equally, fairly, and with respect; questions are encoraged during these classes!
