Basics of Pistol Handling will cover; Safety at home and the range, principal parts and types of actions, how to handle a pistol in a safe manner, fundamentals of pistol shooting, pistol shooting positions, common malfunctions and cleaning, selecting a pistol, and qualifying on a range. The course meets the state of Maine minimum for a Concealed Carry Permit if you pass the 50 question written exam and qualify by putting 5 rounds in 4 target circles (20 rounds total) at 10'. Students will receive the NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting textbook. You do not need to own a pistol for this class, but if you do, you are encouraged to bring it to class with no ammunition. Range time will be scheduled separately from the classroom sessions. If you wish to shoot at the range to qualify and do not own a pistol, one will be provided with 50 rounds of ammunition for $25. If bringing your own pistol to the range, bring 50 rounds of ammunition.  No Discounts. The fee for range time is $50, payable to the instructor.
