WHAT TO BRING

An open mind is recommended. If you already own a firearm you may bring it into the classroom. Also bring at least 20 rounds of ammunition, which must be left in the car until needed for the range Also bring hearing and eye protection (or instructor can provide it as well as a firearm). If you don't currently own a firearm it is suggested to postpone the purchase as the class will help you determine which gun may be best for you.
