At a Glance
Jason Whitaker has a singular focus when it comes to firearms training: handguns. The NRA-certified instructor starts beginners with the NRA Pistol Class, which teaches novices to safely operate semi-automatic handguns and revolvers. Beyond shooting fundamentals, Whitaker can prepare pupils for the written and live-fire portions of the concealed-handgun-license test. Classes are available in Fort Worth and Tyler.
