The Introduction to Handguns class is for people who are new to, or inexperienced at, shooting a handgun. The 3-5-hour class consists of approximately 2 1/2 hours of classroom instruction and 1 1/2 to 2 hours of lessons and shooting at a range. Students who complete the Intro class will be prepared to practice at a range on their own in preparation for a Texas License to Carry (formerly CHL) class.

  • Types and operation of semi-automatic handguns and revolvers
  • Safe handling and storage of handguns and ammunition
  • Fundamentals of shooting a handgun
  • Cleaning and lubricating a handgun
  • Range safety and procedures
