What you will need to take the course:
- A quality pistol recommend minimum of 9mm or .38 Special. We recommend full or compact sized guns for this class. Sub-compact guns are much harder to shoot all day. A second gun like the first one is a good idea in case the first one breaks.
- A quality strong side hip or appendix holster – either form fitted leather or kydex, the holster must completely cover the trigger guard, allow a full firing grip with the gun in the holster and remain open while the gun is drawn. PLEASE NO flimsy nylon or cloth holsters.
- A quality belt, purposely designed to securely attach the holster to the belt and support the weight of a fully loaded pistol.
- About 550-600 rounds of quality training ammunition. If you can bring more do so
- AT LEAST 3 magazines or speed loaders with appropriate belt pouches for the spare magazines. The more magazines you bring, the better.
- Clothing appropriate for concealing a firearm (vest, jacket, windbreaker, over-shirt, polo shirt, etc.). Holsters must be worn concealed.
- Eye protection and hearing protection (we recommend electronic) and we recommend a ball cap or brimmed hat to keep brass from going behind your eye protection.
- Comfortable shoes and clothing appropriate for the weather.
- Rain gear (we train rain or shine), bug repellant, and sun screen if necessary.
- A cooler with soft drinks, water, snacks and lunch will be needed, for lunch on site. We will not be leaving the range for lunch.
You can bring a revolver to this course, but we strongly recommend against it as they tend not to last a full day of intensive shooting.
