More About The Columbia, South Carolina Firearms Safety & Shooting Fundamentals Class:

Firearms Safety and Shooting Fundamentals is a class geared towards those that are new to handguns and are interested in learning gun safety and how to shoot. It is also excellent for those that are considering getting their Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP), but have no knowledge or experience with handguns. The idea is to get the student to the point where they are proficient with a pistol and are poised to pass the SLED CWP shooting qualification required to apply for a South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit if desired.

The student does not need to possess a pistol for the class.
A .22LR pistol is provided along with enough ammunition to get started. Additional .22LR ammunition is available for purchase for $10 a box.

Safe Family Defense rents Gear Packs for $10 that include a 9mm pistol, eyes and ear protection for those that would like learn on a larger caliber. This can be conveniently purchased the day of class.
