Everything you need to know as a new firearm owner.

This three hour introductory course is designed for those who are considering the purchase of a firearm or new owners of firearms. It takes place entirely in the classroom and covers nomenclature, safe handling, fundamentals of shooting, cleaning, storage, and applicable laws.

Important Note:

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, in-person classroom instruction at the San Leandro range is currently suspended and will remain so until Alameda county enters Stage 2. We can not predict when we will be able to offer in-person classroom training. Signing up for a class guarantees your spot if we are able to hold the class, but does not guarantee the class can be held on that date. If we are unable to hold the class you have the option of rescheduling for a later class or receiving a full refund. We apologize for the uncertainty. We want to hold classes but have no control over when the classrooms will reopen. Instead of in-person classroom training, we are holding a video conferencing version of this class. See "Online Introduction to Firearms" on the calender for more information.

This is NOT an NRA-approved course

Note: Instructors who teach a mix of courses are required by the NRA to clearly distinguish which have been developed by the NRA and which have not. It is not a reflection on the course other than to say the NRA has not reviewed its content and thus can't give its approval.

Introduction to Firearms

The course fee is $60. You may bring your personal firearm if you wish but it is not required. We will handle various revolvers and semi-automatic pistols during the class.
