For an affordable and laid-back yet comprehensive introduction to handguns, BGSL Pistol Instructor Natalie Bohon invites you to attend a women’s only basic pistol class which covers all of the skills needed to successfully begin shooting without using live ammunition. In addition to learning the fundamentals of pistol shooting, you will have the opportunity to practice these skills using a SIRT (Shot Indicating Resetting Trigger) Gun paired with laser simulating software.
You will earn two NRA certificates once you have completed this series of classes.
• NRA New Shooter Seminar (1 hour)
• Pistol Marksmanship Simulator Course (2hour)
The cost of the combined 3 hour class is $40 for BGSL members and $50 for non-members. Both the NRA New Shooter Seminar and the Pistol Marksmanship Simulator Course are included. There will be a break for tea and coffee with snacks approximately halfway through the three hours.Spaces are limited, so reserve your spot soon.
