Basic Handgun Classes at Red Bull Firearms Training - MN & ND

Basic Handgun Class

Red Bull Firearms Training

The Basic Handgun course gives the student the opportunity to develop their marksmanship skills by exposing them to specific drills designed to drastically reduce the time it takes to draw and fire multiple controlled shots or single, precision shots.  First time shooters to current permit to carry holders will benefit greatly from this course.  Students will shoot approximately 200 rounds at varying distances from a standing firing position.

This class is a prerequisite to our Defensive Handgun course.
