July 8th – Gun Safety Course
The Foundation will be conducting a Hawaii gun safety course on the 8th of July. This is a great opportunity to get you or someone you know the hands on experience and training required by State law to purchase a handgun in the State of Hawaii.
This course is a basic introduction to firearms, and will cover a variety of topics to help you understand the inner workings and the proper use of your hand gun. Although this class teaches some marksmanship principals, it is mostly designed to ensure that you understand the basics of handgun safety in general; this understanding will help provide you a solid foundation to expand your marksmanship skills and also ensure that are fully capable of safely operating and using your firearm.
Additionally for your benefit, our classes are kept small, with a maximum number of eight people. Very few classes on the island have this personal touch.
What Do I Need To Bring With Me?
What to bring to the class is a great question! When participating in our course, we don’t want to burden you with a whole list of things that you need to do or bring. Our list is short and simple – please bring: sunglasses (or other eye protection). We will provide you with Howard Leight Electronic hearing protection (Seen here); a variety of firearms to shoot from the following manufacturers: Sig Sauer, Glock, Springfield, Smith and Wesson, Walther, and Colt; targets; and ammunition in the following calibers: 9 mm, .38 special, .40 caliber, .22LR.

The information on the registration is necessary to process your legal paperwork. Please use the name on your driver’s license or state identification. We use your information to type up the certificates which we be shown to HPD (If the names do not match, they will not accept it).
Our training starts at the HDF home office in the Red Hill / Salt Lake area, where we conduct the pre-range education section of our course. This inside of a local residence so you will be inside in a quiet, air-conditioned class room setting where bathrooms are available for your use. Also, ample guest parking is available for you at no cost.
After doing the classroom work, where you learn about shooting positions, parts of a firearm, gun safety, and various other topics, we will finish up at Kokohead Shooting Complex. Kokohead is where we perform our live fire training. All of your firearm education training should be complete around 3:00 p.m. After training, we will give you paperwork – no waiting for it to ‘come in the mail’!
