Training Classes for the Week of August 19 – 25, 2013
This week we are introducing our inaugural Concealed Carry Pistol II class. If you have taken our Concealed Carry Pistol I class and are ready for more live fire practice drawing from concealment, this is the class for you! We also have a Home Defense Planning class, Pistol Care & Maintenance, our free Intro to Rifle Ownership class, and our ever-popular BluCore Pistol I class. Scroll down to read more about these classes.
Home Defense Planning and Basics – August 19 (Monday), 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
This class teaches the fundamentals and tools necessary for first-rate home defense. Topics covered in the class include alarm systems, home defense firearms and ammunition, safe rooms, barricading, and door/window security features. This essential home defense class lays the ground work for developing and implementing a good home defense plan, and is encouraged before taking our Home Defense Using a Pistol class, but not required. The class is approximately 3 hours in length. Students will learn basic as well as advanced ways to better protect your home against unwanted intruders.
BluCore Pistol Care & Maintenance Class – August 20 (Tuesday), 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Our Pistol Care and Maintenance Class teaches you how to properly care for and maintain your specific handgun. We begin, as always, discussing firearms safety. After this brief discussion, we will show you how to ‘take-down’, clean and lubricate your firearm. Upon completion of this class, all students will have a firm understanding of how to safely & properly disassemble, reassemble, clean and maintain handguns. This class is 90 minutes in length and includes no range time. Bring your unloaded pistol (in a case) and cleaning supplies to this ‘hands on’ class.
BluCore Concealed Carry Pistol II– August 21 (Wednesday), 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
The BluCore Concealed Carry II class was designed for people looking to continue their concealed handgun training in a live-fire environment. During this class, a quick review of holster drawing is done in the classroom and then students go to the range for a series of live-fire drills. Drills will focus on some challenging and atypical shooting positions that are hard to practice on a typical firing line. Examples include shooting from a seated position and shooting from your back. This class is valuable to anyone carrying a concealed handgun for self-defense in or outside the home. Responsible carriers of firearms should be confident in their abilities to draw and engage targets effectively and safely. This class will help establish those skills! Participants must have taken the BluCore CCW I class and be comfortable drawing from concealment with their own pistol and holster.
BluCore Pistol I – August 22 (Thursday), 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
The BluCore Pistol I class is the fundamental level class for those seeking to learn the proper way to handle and shoot a semi-automatic pistol. If you’ve been shooting for years or are new to shooting, this class is necessary to develop the proper techniques and fundamentals of shooting. Many people have never learned the proper way to align sights or grip a pistol. These fundamentals, and many more, are covered in Pistol I. Class size is limited to 15 students and time is split between the classroom and the range. Bring a gun if you have one, or feel free to rent one of the 50 pistols we have as part of our rental fleet! This class is great for all ages and experience levels. Also offered periodically is a women’s only Pistol I class for those that desire a female only environment – instructors are both male and female. Check out our training calendar for dates and times!
Complimentary Intro to Rifle Ownership – August 24 (Saturday), 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
This class is great for anyone that is new to owning a rifle or thinking about owning a rifle in the future. During this class, one of our expert staff members goes through the core safety rules for safe handling of a rifle (AR-15/semi-auto/bolt action). As always, the emphasis is on safe practices but also covered is the basics of proper loading, unloading, and clearing a rifle. Disassembly of the AR-15 will be covered as well. BluCore offers this free class once a month. Space is limited so make sure to sign up online in advance.
