Basic Firearms

The Briarhawk Pistol Basics/Beginner Firearms course is the best way for you to learn the basics of pistol shooting from our skilled instructors as part of our training organization! The course is the first steps for you to obtain the proper certification for your concealed carry permit.

If you have never shot a gun or have limited knowledge, this is a great place for you to start. Our standard class has a smaller classroom size that will give you more intimate instruction with your instructor. The total class time is just over two hours and includes time at the range behind a gun or time in our simulator if you are not ready to go to the range just yet.

Our pricing is $50 for the class which does not include the cost of range time, gun rental or ammunition which we could be able to accommodate you if you haven’t made a purchase yet.
