We participated in Sandy's Intro to Handguns class in February 2015. The class included basic understandings of the difference between revolvers and semi-automatic handguns as well as single and double action. The instructor was very passionate about safety above all else when handling a firearm. I felt he made everyone comfortable in regards to how safe a gun can be when handled properly even with little to no knowledge of firearms.
We had the opportunity to load both types of guns as well as fire each caliber multiple times with the instructor by our side coaching us in proper grip and aiming techniques. Sandy pointed out brands, costs and good and bad points of each to help us reach our own conclusion as to which firearm we may want to look further into if we decide we want to purchase a gun. We highly recommend Sandy's class to all handgun newbies.

|We offer Texas CHL classes,
private pistol training, and pistol classes,
for individuals from the localities of Dallas, Plano, Carrollton, Richardson, Allen, Frisco, Anna, McKinney, and nearby communities.
Concealed Handgun License classes follow the Texas state-mandated requirements, and are taught as directed
by The Texas Dept of Public Safety. Classroom instruction requires approximately 4 hours, plus a
short test, plus the shooting proficiency test. This is a no-fail course.
We offer the
Concealed Handgun License Class for just $75.00 (including range fees) (over $100.00 at Cabela's). These are small classes, usually 10 or less, so
you have plenty of opportunity to interact with the instructor and the class, and ask questions. The Texas CHL class takes about 4 hours to complete,
and consists of several modules, covering
- Laws that relate to carrying a handgun
- Laws that relate to use of force and deadly force
- Handgun use and safety
- Non-violent dispute resolution
- Proper storage practices for handguns
Everything will be completed in the same day. Private classes are available.
Many people who are interested in the CHL class have not yet learned to shoot, so for them, we also offer two options:
Learn to Shoot. Done entirely at the range, we spend about 1 hour learning safety and mechanics, and an hour in supervised shooting. Limit 5. (Recommended)
Introduction to Pistols. These are classes of generally 6 or less. We spend about 2 1/2 hours in the classroom, then shoot at a private range
NE of McKinney, under direct supervision. The Intro class covers
- Firearm safety
- Handgun features and nomenclature
- Revolver vs. semi-automatic
- Action types
- Ammunition types
- Safe pistol loading and clearing
- Eye dominance
- Establishing the shooting platform
- Dry-fire and live-fire practice
- Cleaning and maintenance
For intermediate shooters only, this course is an introduction to Tactical Training, and is strictly limited to 4 persons.
This course is taught entirely at a private outdoor range NE of McKinney. Students draw and fire at FBI targets, do rapid-fire and timed drills for marksmanship,
shoot at multiple targets, shoot from concealment, reload during timed drills, and other skills. The goal is to prepare someone for a crisis situation.

Murder rate drops.
We follow NRA and DPS protocols, and we take handgun safety seriously. Please see the CHL and Pistol Class Schedule
Please note that the Texas CHL class is not about learning to shoot. You should already have at least minimal proficiency with a handgun before signing up.
If in doubt, go to a range and see if you can hit a paper plate at 3 yards 3 out of 4 times. If you can, you should be fine.
