Albany Rifle and Pistol Club
Basic Handgun   

Our Basic Handgun class at ARPC focuses on handgun familiarity and safety. There are no prerequisites for this class. The intent is to provide basic training for those with little or no shooting experience and for those who want a refresher on the basics. We have had experienced shooters with no formal training benefit from taking this class. Basic Handgun is 6 hours and participants will need a semi-auto handgun, and 50 rounds of new ammo (.380 to .45)

Please watch the ARPC calendar for this this class and to sign up.
