Coaching & Courses

Beginners’ Safety Training

What will I be doing?
 Depending on your level, coaching begins with basic gun handling and firing. You will get to try a few different types of handgun such as .22 semi automatic, .38 special revolver, and 9mm semi automatic. We will instruct you in the finer points of pistol shooting, such as stance, breathing, trigger control, etc. You will get a chance to try the different disciplines. 

What do I bring? You will need a set of ear muffs and safety glasses. You do not need to spend hundreds on a pair of electronic ear muffs, as a set from your local hardware is all you need. Just ensure they are rated high enough to protect your ears. Some may even consider ear plugs as well. You will also need to bring money to pay for ammunition that will be issued to you by a licensed shooter. 
Lessons 1 to 5 are held on the second, third and fourth Saturdays of the month at 8am. 

Lesson 6 is held on a weekend (by appointment).
Lesson 7 is held mid-morning on the first Saturday of the month.

Note – Coaching winds down over Christmas, January and Easter. Any changes, if necessary, will be organised during the coaching course.
