Aegis Academy's firearms familiarization course is an introduction to shooting, responsible gun ownership and range safety. We cover the general characteristics and basic weapons handling skills for a variety of firearms. You will have the opportunity to fire three different carbines, three different shotguns and five different semi-automatic pistols. This is a great course for new or inexperienced shooters who want to demystify the world of firearms in a safe and fun learning environment. Additionally, if you are considering purchasing your first gun, this is a great place to get a good idea of what type of gun you should consider. In addition to the course, you are invited to join your classmates and the staff for a beer (or soda) and a taco at the resort & casino for happy hour after we finish. All the equipment, firearms and ammunition is included - All you have to do is show up!
I don't aspire to own a gun, but I think it's incredibly important to be able to handle one. Pat, Jimmy, Steve, Steve and Howard were absolutely wonderful instructors. They all have extensive experience, are incredibly friendly, and very patient. VERY PATIENT. They did an amazing job at making everyone feel comfortable. Any question you have at all, they had an answer or would find it for you. If you are looking for a course on any kind of gun, Aegis is the place to go. Professional, experienced and thorough education is what you will get here.
I have lots of experience with rifles, but essentially none with handguns. These guys were awesome. Down to earth, friendly and most importantly, experienced. Almost all of the instructors have over 20 years in the special forces community. There was some classroom instruction, followed by some time at the range, all of which was outstanding. I would highly recommend this class to any shooter. If you have never picked up a gun, or if you have been shooting all of your life, these guys will make you better... True Story!
