Firearms Safety and Shooting Fundamentals is a class geared towards those that are new to handguns and are interested in learning gun safety and how to shoot. It is also excellent for those that are considering getting their Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP), but have no knowledge or experience with handguns. The idea is to get the student to the point where they are proficient with a pistol and be able to pass the shooting qualification required to apply for a South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit.
The concepts covered are:
- What are the causes of gun accidents
- The four cardinal rules of gun safety
- The parts of a pistol
- Pistol maintenance
- Proper firearms storage
- Ammunition and malfunctions
- Shooting fundamentals
- Sight Alignment/Picture
- Trigger press and follow through
- Breath control
- Shooting stance
- Live fire on a shooting range
This class entails 3 hours of training to complete each of the above components.
The class is held at Mid-Carolina Rifle Club and is geared for no more than 4 students at a time although exceptions can be made.
