Are you a beginner? A private lesson is where you need to start so we can customize the time based on your ability.

The Self Defense and Home Defense Pistol series at HW Range is our most popular training series. These classes lasts two hours and run in a three-course series (some take all three classes, some only one or two). We cover everything from the basics all the way through moving and shooting, reloads, using cover/concealment, and much more. Our goal in the later phases is to create a stress factor for our students in order to best simulate real-life self defense scenarios. These classes are even more effective if you’re able to bring a close friend or someone you spend lots of time with.
Phase I is not a introductory class, we suggest scheduling private instruction with one of our trainers prior to signing up for this informative defensive series. Students need to have a license to carry or private lesson prior to attending.
Phase I: Without a firm foundation you will never become a solid shooter. Phase I is all about the basics. At the conclusion of this phase, we will put a business card on a target edge toward you and you will split it in half!
Phase II: Phase II starts with safely getting your gun in and out of your holster. Phase II was built around the number one rule of gun fighting: “No one stands still.” Whether you are creating separation from your target, moving to find cover, or headed down a hall to secure your children, there is always somewhere to go. In Phase II we learn how to accomplish this task while engaging multiple targets and properly using cover lines. *Required* a hard sided holster designed specifically to secure your pistol in your holster. No Serpa holsters are allowed at the range.
Phase III: Our goal for the student in Phase III is to begin to operate his/her pistol on a subconscious level, and the only effective way to do this is through high intensity training. Drills in phase three include: making a variety of reloads, shooting from the driver’s seat of a vehicle, distinguishing the target, and learning how to individually breakdown self-defense scenarios with a tactical mindset.
Price: $85 per phase
(After completing all 3 phases you can return to any class for only $25)
Prerequisite: You must have had either a Private Lesson or a Concealed Handgun License prior to sign-up. Students must take Phase I before II, Phase II before III .
Gear: Participants in Phase I will need: ear/eye protection, 2 or more pistol magazines, and ammunition. Round count suggestions are listed in each class description at the time of sign up and are approximate.
*** HW Gun Range requires a 48 hour advance notice in the event the registrant needs to cancel his/her attendance from class. If we are not notified of your intent to cancel or transfer/postpone from your registered class you will NOT receive a refund.
