Do you want to get your Tennessee Handgun License? The State of Tennessee requires a 8 hour handgun safety and familiarization course. The class consists of 7 hours of classroom and 1 hour of range qualification.
The cost includes 50 rounds of qualification ammunition for your firearm, a firearm rental (if you do not own a pistol), and the range fee. Additional ammunition is available at the range for a reasonable fee, or you may bring additional ammo for your personal firearm. If you are new to shooting, this class is for you. Davis Shooting utilizes Total Participation Involvement (TPI) to engage all of the ways people learn new skills. We bring actual firearms for our students to manipulate, which facilitates memory retention. We use the State of Tennessee required Power Point Presentation to further facilitate the retention of the information. We provide individual attention to our students to further ensure they learn and retain the material. Finally, we take the time to work with you at the range prior to taking the qualification test, because we understand that everyone who comes to us for training expects to be shooting more accurately.
In short, we want to ensure you have a positive experience no matter what your skill level. We are not the typical handgun instructor’s that are just trying to run as many students as they can through the range as fast as they can just to turn maximum revenue with minimal effort. In short, our students matter.
