This course is approximately 8-10 hours and involves a half day at the range. We start at the classroom at the advertised address and then visit a local range. Generally either the Banner shooting range in Indianola or Olofson shooting range in Polk City. This is, however, subject to change. IA state range fees are $10/hour.

$15 pistol rental – (ammo included) .22lr revolvers available for rent upon request. You are not required to pass the shooting test with any specific firearm or caliber. A minimum of a .22 is required.
