You will need to bring your pistol, ear and eye protection, and ammunition for your gun. We recommend at least 50 rounds but 100 is better. Instructors always bring a variety of guns so you can also put various guns in your hand and see what fits you and you shoot well.

You will need to shoot each target 2 times.

Equipment you will need is:

Center fire gun with proper ammo.  Belt mounted holster. No shoulder or pocket holsters allowed.  Magazine pouches to carry extra mags.  Ability to carry a minimum of 25 rounds of ammunition at the start of the course of fire. With 12 targets and a start plate, you will need at least 25 rounds. Having more than 25 at the start would be better.
