Part 2 - Range Day - Approximately 3 -4 Hours. This is where you'll put what you've learned in the classroom into practice.  We'll do a review to make sure we're all in sync with the what, and how's of firearms safety, manipulation and management.  After the review... you'll start slow and progressively build to your short qualification course of fire.
