First time shooter class near Columbus

Postby BadCrosshairDay » Thu Jan 19, 2017 3:07 pm

Any suggestions for a class to recommend to a first time shooter? He says he has never fired a handgun before, nor does he own any firearms. The class should be within an hour or so of Columbus.

He is looking to get started with shooting. Wants to take a class before starting to rent/pick his first handgun.

As for CHL, when I asked he told me his interest is home defense and range trips. In his words, "but I'm not going to walk around with it".

For $50 plus range fees, I'll spend a few hours with him and take him to Vance's or LEPD's range.

I think it's a good idea, but he is looking for more of a structured class.
