fast2The goal of the Second Amendment Foundation Training Division's  “F.A.S.T HandgunIMG 1581 course is to provide the student with a solid foundation in basic knowledge of handgun "Fundamentals and Safety Training", a basic understanding of ammunition and how it functions as well as the shooting fundamentals.                                                                                                                            

A person new to the use of a firearm for personal defense typically has a broad range of questions and is faced with learning a number of skills that are critical in the safe use of a firearm – in this case, a handgun. F.A.S.T Handgun is specifically designed to provide a person new to handguns the opportunity to gain that knowledge and learn the basics of operation, cleaning and maintenance, safety and much more in a convenient 1 day course. “F.A.S.T Handgun” is also meant as an introductory course for students new to handguns prior to taking SAFTEA Defensive Handgun 1.      (We are NOT a Public Range)
