What to Bring to Class

You will need a minimum of 400 rounds for your carbine and 100 rounds for your pistol. You will need to bring safety glasses and hearing protection (electronic prefered 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. We do have carbines and gear for rent if you need. This is a great way to try some different guns and gear before making any major purchases, or just to come out and try something new.
