No. Students do not need to own a firearm to take a specific course. Many students prefer to take a course first before deciding on a gun of their own. Others borrow a firearm from a friend or relative. This is perfectly acceptable. If you borrow a gun from a friend or neighbor for training and you are unfamiliar with it, please notify the instructors before loading the firearm. They will gladly assist you with double-checking the integrity of the firearm and showing you how to safely load and unload it before you have to use it.
If you don’t have a firearm, we will gladly provide you with a firearm and enough ammunition for the course for a fee of $30. Just bring cash with you on class day and you can shoot one of ours. The guns we loan to students are usually either .22 for Basic Pistol, or 9mm for Concealed Carry classes.
