Defensive Handgun Skills Review

The indoor range is reserved on the first Tuesday night of each month from 5:15 PM to 6:45 PM
for a Defensive Handgun Skills Review.

This is not an "open range" or a class per se, rather it is an instructor-lead skills review and practice
for those who have had intermediate or advanced pistol training and bring the required equipment.
