Florida Firearms Academy - Tampa
This class is held at the same time as our regular Basic Pistol class but is discounted for persons wanting to sign up as a couple.
Florida Firearms Academy’s Basic Pistol Class is the Foundation of handgun training. This class is intended for those who have limited to no experience with firearms, or those who want to invest in their time and focus on building fundamentals. We will spend time in the classroom, covering Firearms Safety, Range Safety, Gun Anatomy and Operation, Handgun Fundamentals, Loading and Unloading, and then spend an hour on the range. We encourage our students to fire about 10-20 rounds at this level. We will provide safety equipment, targets, rental firearms, and waive your range fee. We will also cover 10 rounds of 22LR ammunition for the shooting portion of the class. If you wish to use your own firearm or rent a larger firearm, ammunition costs is from $16-$30 per box of 50 rounds and depends on caliber. This class is taught by a NRA Certified Instructors with Florida Firearms Academy’s Curriculum. You may use a certificate of this class as proof of completion of a firearms safety class to apply for your Florida Concealed Weapons and Firearms License; although, we highly recommend that you attend our Concealed Weapon Permit (CWP) Course before you carry a gun.
