What to Bring to Class

You will need writing pad and pen/pencil and your pistol you intend to use for the range. Your pistol should be in a case and unloaded for transportation in your vehicle and that is how we expect it to be brought into the classroom.  Absolutely no ammunition in class, please. You can use any caliber pistol for this class. Bring any snacks or drinks you may want throughout the day. Coffee, water, and doughnuts/bagels will be provided in the morning. ATHG Tactical does have various pistols available to rent. If you will be renting one of ATHG’s pistols you will need to make arrangements in advance. If you do not already own a pistol, renting is a great way to find out what you like or what fits your needs best.

  • Pistol (No Ammunition!)
  • Two Magazines
  • Lunch (1 hour break to drive to the range)
  • Drinks
  • Valid Michigan Drivers license or State ID

What you Need for the Range

You will need a minimum of 100 rounds for your pistol. This does not account for any extra shooting required to be able to complete the course of fire (if needed). You will need to bring safety glasses and hearing protection (electronic preferred so you can hear range commands). You will need to wear seasonally appropriate clothing. Shirts should have a round collar to prevent the unauthorized access of brass into your shirt. All shooting ranges used by ATHG are outdoor and will take place rain or shine so depending on weather you may need rain gear and certainly ned to dress appropriately for the weather. No open toed or open heal shoes!

7:30am to 5:00pm – Class will start at 7:30am at Tsutomuru Judo Dojo and participants are encouraged to show up about 10 minutes early so everyone is ready to get started on time. The class room portion is 5 hours and we will have several breaks during that time. We will break for lunch at 12:30pm and class will resume at 2:00 at the range. This will provide ample time for participants to get lunch and drive to the range where the rest of the class will be held. The range portion is 3 hours and class will be dismissed at 5:00. Participants will receive the course completion certificate that day.
