About this course:
The ARPC is offering a basic BEGINNING handgun course intended for people over age 18 who have had little, if any, previous firearm training. This course is also open to the public. Instructors are ARPC Range Safety Officers and the curriculum is patterned after the NRA Beginning Handgun Course. This is not a concealed carry license class. The class is three hours in duration: one hour classroom, one hour dry fire, and one hour live fire. The goal is safety and handgun familiarity rather than marksmanship. Class fee is $30 and is open to members or non-members alike. Ammo is an additional cost - 9MM is $13/box of 50, 380 is $18 per box of 50 and 22 is $4 per box of 50. Students must use our range guns (mostly Glocks) and must use our factory ammunition. The class instructor will accept credit card payments over the phone. Payment is required in advance and is non-refundable. We anticipate each participant to fire around 50 to 100 rounds. We will review:

Safety rules
Storage and transportation of firearms
Discuss handgun types
Magazines and loaders
Ammunition choices
The use of handgun sights
What to expect at the range
Range commands
The five items you need at the range besides the firearm
The seven fundamentals of shooting
Shooting positions
Common shooting errors
Cleaning your gun

Future training opportunities will also be explored. Classes are generally scheduled the second Sunday of each month is reserved from 10am-1pm. Please keep an eye on the calendar in case we need to change a date. This class has limited attendance but will be repeated monthly. For questions and to sign up please contact Jim at 541-740-7635 or jim6br@gmail.com.
