Club member Garry Marr and his outfit at Tremis Dynamics have taken over teaching the Firearms Familiarization and Personal Protection class at the Club.

This class is designed for the first-time gun owner or someone who just got a carry permit and wants to learn the best, safest way to use their pistol. The class is about 6 hours long and will be a mix of classroom and range time. If you have a holster, bring it; if you don’t, that’s fine, we’ll discuss different carry options and get you pointed in the right direction for your first purchase. If you need any direction for what gear to get that’s on the gear list below, or where to get it, please contact us at and we’ll get you sorted out.

The first class will be held on Sunday, September 22nd, 2024 from 9:00 a.m. to approx. 4:00 p.m. 
You must pre-register for the class by going to  and clicking on “add to cart” and going through the check out procedure.  Pre-registration starts now and goes through September 15, 2024.
