$69 for the Deluxe Learn to Shoot Course ($150 Value)
NRA-licensed instructors lead the Deluxe Learn to Shoot class that includes four hours of classroom instruction as well as hands-on training exercises. After covering safety and gun laws, students use laser-embedded SIRT training pistols to maneuver through live exercises that teach the proper way to present the a firearm from a holster as well as fundamentals such as grip, stance, and trigger control. Lighter than comparable firearms, the SIRT maintains much of the same feel and function as comparable live-fire pistols, with the benefit of allowing trainees to practice a high volume of shots. Each class hosts 10–40 students, each of whom also gets a complimentary T-shirt. Check Learn 2 Shoot Iowa's website for the course dates.
