Most people do not like or are afraid of firearms simply because they are uneducated about them - they have no information or experience with guns to allay that fear or dislike. When you couple that with the negative propaganda spread by the media and other groups, you end up with a breeding ground for fear and loathing. Guns need to be respected, but they are no more inherently dangerous than a car if handled safely and properly.
Sign your significant other up for our Basic “Handgun 101” Safety Course. It is the perfect course to dispel the myths and fears about guns (i.e. guns do not “just go off”). We can answer any questions they have and provide answers in a non-threatening, educational environment. We can show them how a gun works and teach them about safety, including how to safely handle and store a handgun. Many people have found that “familiarity breeds contempt” and learning from a certified, objective third-party is the way to go. This is a non-shooting course (but we can arrange for live fire training if desired).
This course will not qualify them for a Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit, but it is the perfect accompaniment to the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course or the NRA First Steps Pistol course (which will qualify you for the Virginia CHP).
Contact us for a deep discount on combining the two courses!
