Women's Pistol 101

Our Pistol 101 class is designed to give shooters a solid understanding of firearms safety and function, proper range etiquette, loading and unloading procedures, and the 7 elements of marksmanship. These are the fundamental building blocks for all firearm applications. If you are a new firearm owner, or you have been to the range a number of times but would like to improve your accuracy and control, this is a great class to join. If precision is not a problem but you would like to shoot faster, we will discuss the tools for that as well.

Private Training Sessions - Tailored to your needs

Magen Am runs private sessions at any skill level, with a curriculum tailored for your group. We will accommodate between 1 – 10 people in each two hour session. Minors are allowed to attend as long as a parent is present and they are old enough to follow all safety instructions.

Pricing depends on the number of people who attend. The cost is $250/hour for instructor time plus $100/participant (this fee starts at the second participant. It is made up of a $40 range fee and $60 of ammo costs. If you are bringing your own ammo, $60 will be waived). The cost is totaled and divided by the number of participants for a per person cost.

For example,

If only 1 person wants a private session, the cost would be as follows:

$250/hour for 2 hours = $500

No additional participant fee

Ammo is included

Total cost = $500

If 4 people wanted a private session and Magen Am provides ammo for everyone, the cost would be as follows:

$250/hour for 2 hours = $500

$100/participant for 3 additional participants = $300

Total cost = $800

Cost per participant = $800 divided by 4 people = $200/person

If 4 people wanted a private session and were bringing their own ammo, the cost would be as follows:

$250/hour for 2 hours = $500

$40/participant for 3 additional participants = $120 (i.e. no participant is paying the $60 ammo fee)

Total cost = $620

Cost per participant = $620 divided by 4 people = $155/person

“Firearms 101” Lecture and Q&A - The training will be focused on responsible firearms ownership – from purchasing your first firearm to discussing training, licensing, and other key considerations, including safe storage.

Magen Am’s goal of the evening is to ensure that every individual and family who is considering the responsibility of utilizing firearms in your personal safety plan is equipped with the knowledge and information they need to be as effective as possible.

This class will also feature a hands-on demonstration to maximize what will be taught. You can expect the following to be covered during the training:

  • Learning and implementing the critical four rules of gun safety 

  • Understanding the options of firearms and why you might choose one over the other

  • Insight into the need for consistent learning and training

  • Legal considerations in realizing there is a third fight to be prepared for

  • How to be a responsible firearm owner

For our Pistol 101 class, you must provide your own ammo. There is ammo for sale at the range office, which opens at 8 am. You must be at least 21 years old and have a valid ID to purchase it. If you are borrowing one of our firearms, we use 9 mm ammo. We suggest purchasing 100 rounds, though it is possible that you won't use them all.
