Title: ARPC Basic Handgun Course including OR only CHL
Meet in NRC & Bay 1
Pre-Registration Required
The Basic Handgun class at ARPC focuses on handgun familiarity and safety. There are no prerequisites for this class, as the intent is to provide basic training for those with little or no shooting experience, and for those who want a refresher on the basics. We have had experienced shooters of many years, who have had no formal training, benefit from taking this class. Students will bring their own firearm (no revolvers) and ammunition, which will be inspected by the instructor prior to class. Those without firearms or ammunition may rent an ARPC firearm (typically a Glock, though others are available for those with weaker hands or who are left-handed) for a fee of $5 for the rental and current market replacement cost for 50 rounds of ammunition.
The cost of this class is $75 for members and $100 for non-members. Non-members will receive a $25 gift certificate off New Member Initiation fees.
