Sunday, May 14

9:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M. Demystifying the AR-15 - $50

Whether you’re new to modern sporting rifles (MSR) or have years of experience, this class will get you up-to-speed fast on America’s most popular home defense rifle. We’ll break down the AR-15 to base components; examine AR-15 parts & functions; compare AR-15 to other rifles (similarities & differences); demonstrate & discuss safe gun handling & operation of the AR-15; and, engage in live-fire shooting with the AR-15. Ammo must be provided or purchased separately.  Appropriate for adults and kids ages 12 and older. Those under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent / guardian.

2:00 P.M. - 3:00 P.M. Unarmed Self-Defense: Intro to Krav Maga - $10

Not all unarmed self-defense strategies are created equally. Krav Maga was developed for the Israeli Defense Forces and is a method that combines the most-effective techniques from various martial art forms. We like to say that Krav Maga is heavier on the “martial” and less so on the “arts”. We’ll teach you the best target areas of the body to inflict the most damage in short order, how to strike (using hands, fists, elbows, knees & feet) and how to address many common forms of attack. Appropriate for adults and kids ages 12 and older. Those under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent / guardian.

I enjoyed the Basic Pistol class and learned so much! I also liked how the instructors spent time after class to answer all my questions. I can't wait to get home and buy my first gun!

Wow, wow, wow!! I haven't taken any training since I got my CCW six years ago. I had no idea how much I didn't know until attending this class. I feel safer already!

Just bought a new AR-15 a couple of months before attending your class. I learned so much in the short time I was there and liked that my son could learn right along with me.
