Where Should I Start My Training?

This is the question that starts the first conversation we have with many, many students. As you browse through the many classes listed under the various categories in the menu to the left, you may also wonder which class would be best suited to your skill and experience so you get the most out or your training at Firearms Academy.

For the beginning student who does not have much experience with shooting handguns for self-defense purposes, the best choices are first to take the Level 1 Handgun courses: Handgun Safety Seminar followed by the Fundamentals of Home Defense or Concealed Carry 101, depending on individual interests and needs. (Our safety seminar is a non-negotiable prerequisite to Concealed Carry 101 or Fundamentals of Home Defense.)

The more advanced student having already firmly mastered of the basics taught in the Level 1 Handgun classes may start at Level 2: Defensive Handgun.
