Training Classes for the Week of August 12-19, 2013 

We are pleased to announce that we have two new free classes: Complimentary Intro to Pistol Ownership and Complimentary Intro to Rifle Ownership.  The Complimentary Intro to Pistol Ownership class is coming up this Saturday (please scroll down for more information on the class).  Even though there is no charge for the class, we still need you to sign up online in advance so we know how many people to expect.

We also have lowered the price on our NRA Basic Pistol class.  The price has been reduced to $125, and our next class is coming up this Sunday.

BluCore Pistol II – August 14 & 15 (Wed/Thurs), 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
If you’ve taken the BluCore Pistol I class (or similar outside course) and are ready for the next level, then Pistol II is the next step.  The BluCore Pistol II Class introduces students to tactical pistol shooting.  In this class, students will quickly review the basics from our Pistol I class and then expand upon them.  The skills and drills we teach are in use by Special Operations, Law Enforcement, and competitive shooters. The lead instructor for this class is a former member of the US Special Operations Community.  Students will begin drills from the high ready position and then progress to drawing from the holster.  Also covered in the course: engaging multiple targets, combat & tactical reloads, strong/support hand shooting, and shooting while moving!  This week’s class is full, but we will be offering it again on October 16 & 17.

GUNLOCKER TRUST™ – August 16 (Friday), 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Gun rights and owning guns are important to you.  You store them safely.  You use them safely.  Let us help you purchase, own, share, and transfer them safely.  A GUNLOCKER TRUST™ is a trust system designed to help you avoid legal hassles now, hassles if you become disabled or die, and the likelihood of an “accidental felony” due to unlawful sharing, gifting, or selling a firearm.  We will discuss all aspects of our GUNLOCKER TRUST™ including: What is a gun trust?  How does it work?  What is an “accidental felony?  Why choose a GUNLOCKER TRUST™?

Complimentary Introduction to Pistol Ownership – August 17 (Saturday), 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Are you new to pistol ownership or thinking of purchasing a pistol in the near future?  If so, this is a great chance for you to get exposed to the proper safety rules and handling procedures of a pistol.  During this class, one of our expert staff members goes through the core safety rules for safe handling of a pistol (semi-automatic or revolver).  As always, the emphasis is on safe practices but also covered is the basics of proper loading, unloading, and clearing a pistol.  Disassembly will be covered for those that bring a firearm to the class.  BluCore offers this free class once a month (space is limited, so sign up online or in the store).
