Regardless of your shooting knowledge or expertise, you will find this class both informative and a good review of the basics. It is taught by state and NRA certified CCHFA members who have been teaching marksmanship for over 45 years. They know their subject and have the ability to make the classes fun. The class costs $50. Class hours and days can be adjusted to fit your work schedule.

This class qualifies you for the Tennessee Handgun Permit that allows you to carry openly or concealed and is recognized and accepted by 37 other states in the USA.
