During the Basic Pistol Shooting class, instructors emphasize safe handling while teaching fundamentals such as the parts of the handgun. They also demonstrate the principles of sound marksmanship, from breath control to sight alignment. After classroom work, students visit the range to practice shooting with both revolvers and semiautomatic pistols. Classes are scheduled Monday–Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Divided into basic and advanced sections spread across a total of seven skill segments, the Personal Protection Outside the Home class focuses on the practical operation of a concealed weapon through both classroom and range training. In addition to teaching practical skills such as drawing from a holster or purse and identifying protective cover, instructors also dedicate time to going over laws applicable to concealed weapons.
