If you are unsure whether this course is appropriate for your skill level, then it likely is. If you have never had formal firearms training, then this course is geared for you. Finally, if you have never had a basic pistol course and would like to attend a “Pistol 2” type courses with other firearms instructors, they will need proof of formal Basic Pistol training. This IS NOT a CCW course; however, it is a perfect precursor OR follow-up to the CCW course because many CCW courses do not teach how to shoot.
