Our number one concern is safety. Novices will learn how to shoot and handle a gun the safe way.
You will learn:
1. Pistol Safety, Parts, and Operation
2. Possible malfunctions and how to respond.
3. Ammunition and the Fundamentals of Pistol Shooting
4. Pistol Shooting from the Benchrest and Standing Positions
5. Pistol Cleaning, Storage, and Training Opportunities
6. Range overview and expectations.
You will gain the skill to be able to more confidently own, handle, maintain and shoot
All of our students have told us their confidence level goes up dramatically.
Whether it's improving marksmanship, safe handling or maybe even feel more confident in buying that first gun.
You will also receive a certificate which will allow you to apply for a Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit.
A few of our many testimonials:
"I would recommend this class to anyone. Alec was a great instructor. Very patient too!"
"I appreciate that I was made to feel comfortable asking questions and seeking further clarifications at any time during the presentation and/or while at the range."
"Alec is an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable and friendly and I look forward to learning from him in the future "
"This was a good introduction which is what I needed.
Alec made me feel comfortable and calmed my nerves when we were at the firing range with his confident, calm demeanor."
"Perfect. What I wanted to gain from the experience. Never rushed. Patient. Great knowledge. Made me feel safe and comfortable."
"I feel far more confident in handling and shooting my pistol than I did before I took the course."
"Thank you so much, you did a great job with us."
No need to already own a gun.
We will supply the firearms if you do not have one of your own.
You will be able to try several different guns. Among them will be a .22, several 9mm,
a .38 special and .357 magnum. There will be both semi auto pistols and revolvers.
IIn addition to being the lead instructor at 2AS, I am also an affiliate instructor with Guns-n-Gear and Capitol Defense Instruction. Both located in the Northern Virginia area.
Upon completion of the course, you will receive a certificate which you can use to apply for a Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit.
