Yes! Our goal is to educate every person on firearm safety. Firearm Education is a crucial aspect of making sure all gun owners are responsible and handling their firearms properly. 

Many people are also fearful of firearms because they have never received any instruction on how to handle a gun properly. This course will hopefully allow more people to feel comfortable handling and purchasing firearms.
