Topics covered include: safety rules, types of pistols and selection, ammunition basics, fundamentals of pistol shooting, shooting positions, common shooting errors, gun cleaning and maintenance, and maintaining skills.

The course will be taught by NRA-Certified Instructors on Saturday, September 24, 2022. This will be a single day session starting at 8 AM in the clubhouse on Rt 150, Willimantic, ME. Expected duration is 8 hours. We will break for lunch. Enrollees must be law-abiding citizens, and at least 18 years of age. Certificates will be awarded after completion.

Pre-registration is required. The fee is $80. Students may use their personal handguns, but we provide a variety of handguns for students to use. We will provide .22 rimfire ammunition.
