March Firearms Training Class
Early in March we ran our Hawaii Firearms Training Class for new shooters. The course consisted of 4 and one-half hours of classroom instruction and two + hours of range time. We really had a great time shooting various types of firearms. The Hawaii Defense Foundation instructors really like keeping the class size down to a minimum; it allowed us to provide the proper 1 on 1 instruction students need — and deserve.
During the class students learned about the the various parts and components that construct a firearm. We also introduced the cycles of operation and how all those parts function together. One of the foundation’s instructors, Christopher Baker, can be seen here displaying the cycle of operation to the class.
When covering the different shooting positions, it’s important to recognize that sometimes you may not be able to utilize both the firing and non-firing hands. Our instructors ensured the class was able to fire from various shooting positions.
Even the guys get to try!
If you have any questions, or would like to go through a course yourself, please contact the Hawaii Defense Foundation. We can also help you to get your Hawaii Firearms permit. Here are a few more pictures from our event for your enjoyment.
