Basic Handgun is taught at our indoor handgun range in Inwood WV, and is an 8 hour fundamentals course designed for new shooters or experienced shooters who want a review. The course follows an NRA style format, beginning with a detailed lecture on handgun types, design, theory & function. The student is then introduced to the dynamic world of ammunition and its details as these are important for various types of shooting applications. Eye dominance is determined, and there is a detailed lecture on the six fundamentals of shooting. Then students learn about proper handgun maintenance/cleaning, safe use, storage and transportation guidelines. The lecture segment is followed by an exam. After the exam, a 1 hour WV Concealed Carry Law presentation is performed by a local LE officer or attorney. This allows the students seeking a WV Concealed Carry Permit to ask questions pertaining to their rights. Finally, a shooting qualification concludes the course in which each student must score a 70% or greater score. Each student is allowed a maximum of 100 rounds of ammunition to score 7/10 in a 12-inch circle at 21-feet target distance. A 70% or greater score on both the open book exam and the shooting qualification must be obtained to receive a signed certificate of completion for 8 hours of training.
