Connecticut Pistol Permit Classes

Pistol Permit Classes


You’ll learn all the “basics” of pistol shooting, safety being first and foremost. Classes are small and the atmosphere relaxed—no need to feel intimidated or afraid. By the end of the course, you’ll be amazed by your progress and shooting better than you thought you could.

You won’t find another certified and insured handgun instructor that will provide you with the level of attention, depth of knowledge, and proven techniques that I do.

The classroom portion of the course is held in Southington, Connecticut. Range time will be at Wolf’s Indoor Range in Bristol.


Classes are given on Saturdays. The course starts at 8:00am and runs until 6:00pm, depending on the number of students in the class. Weekday dates will be coming soon.

Class Size

I like to keep classes small—no more than four students—so each student gets the necessary experience and personal attention he or she deserves.

If you have a group of friends that want to take the course together, I’ll accommodate you.

I also offer private one-on-one classes.

Ladies Classes

I offer single-sex classes for women who would be more comfortable in such an environment.

I just wanted to say “thank you” again for all your help last week at the range getting my gun straightened out. I would have been lost if it wasn’t for you! You didn’t need to spend that amount of time out of your own range time to help me. It was truly appreciated.

I never got the chance to thank you for my lesson either. The pointers you gave me from how to grip the gun to technique in firing was such a tremendous help. Taking the NRA class then expecting to just be able to walk in a range and shoot is not something I was too comfortable with. Your lesson gave me a solid foundation to my shooting technique and the confidence, especially as a woman to be able to handle her own. I look forward to another lesson soon.

See you at the range!
