Having recently purchased a new handgun even though I grew up hunting and shooting long gun I wasn’t real comfortable with handguns. This introduction to handguns class was a great choice for me. It was a straight forward nuts and bolts class on gun safety and how to properly handle, shoot and care for your handgun. Lot of range time and hands on using and cleaning your own gun. The instructor made everyone feel comfortable no matter what their level of experience. Overall a great choice for anyone who wants to become more comfortable handling handguns.

Great class to learn about your firearm. I learned a lot and gained a lot more confidence in my ability to shoot and to take care of my gun safely. The instructors at fireline are extremely knowledgeable and always willing to answer questions.

My wife and I were new to guns but had a strong interest in learning how to shoot. This class was the first one we took and the first time firing a gun. The instructor was great, taking his time to explain everything to us and making us feel comfortable. I strongly recommend this class if you are a new gun owner and don't feel confident handling it.

Today we just finished our third class at the Fireline Training facility in Appleton. I must say the staff there is top quality. The bend over backwards to make sure everyone in the class gets the training they need to advance in their skill sets. We signed up for another class today before we left. They have so many classes to choose from. Keep up the good work Fireline!

I went to this class not knowing what to expect. I left with the confidence to purchase my own firearm and continue perfecting my skills. I was very impressed with the thorough curriculum and course content. From the moment I arrived the staff was helpful and friendly and assisted me with a firearm rental and purchase of ammo and eye/ear protection. The combination of the classroom environment and range activity was perfect. Our instructor was incredible, patient, confident, and was able to manage varying levels of experience and comfort in a professional manner. I left with the confidence and basic knowledge I need to move forward with honing my skills. I will be back and look forward to enrolling in a future series of classes. I would highly recommend Fireline!

I attended Introduction to handguns. I was happy with the course content as a beginner with little experience. Our instructor was patient, confident, and knowledgeable. I left with the confidence, knowledge and a personal comfort needed to be safe with my gun. I highly recommend Fireline for training courses. I look forward to returning to use the range.
