"INDOOR" BEGINNING HANDGUN 101 - (5 hours) - $150

LOW-ENERGY , LOW-RECOIL TRAINING COURSE - STAY WARM!
Handguns And Ammunition Provided!

$75 Deposit Required

For our "Half-Day" course, we'll generally start at 9:00 AM and we'll go until about 2:00 PM.  The course is fun, active, interactive, and informal.  You'll love it!

Stay WARM during winter months while practicing!  Exactly the same as our Signature Beginning Handgun class except indoors, and without the heavy recoil that occurs with lethal, ballistic ammunition!  Special firearms provide with the ammunition for students who want an All-Inclusive course, are law enforcement certified, low-recoil, "less than lethal" firearms and ammo suitable for indoor use.  Stoneridge Tactical has received authorization from local law enforcement to offer this course indoors inside city limits.  This is definitely a class you want to be part of. 

Except for the non-lethal, live-fire handguns  and special ammunition provided to all students as part of the course, this course is identical to the Beginning Handgun class listed above.  Because these firearms use a specialized, high-tech, low-energy, low-recoil ammunition and corresponding specialized firearms, the cost is somewhat higher than the other Beginning Handgun course.  This course is absolutely perfect for students that have a higher-anxiety level when dealing with handguns.  You'll feel right at home and comfortable with our stock of non-lethal firearms and ammunition.  No sore hands, overwhelming shock, muzzle flash, or tremendous noise like billistic firearms have.  In fact, no hearing protection is required!

Starting from the ground floor - Specifically for students with limited to no handgun experience.  We take you from box to backstop with semi-automatic handguns.  Starting with terminology, semantics, field-stripping your handgun, cleaning, operation, ammunition, malfunction types, basic discussion and implementation of operating your handgun, plus learning to field strip your firearm then putting it back together.  Students will make their way to the indoor range using basic stances for shooting.  The goal is safety, confidence, and competency.  Satisfies ORS 166.291 for Oregon Concealed Handgun licensing.  Students with their own handgun are encouraged to bring their ballistic handgun with them to class!

Once students learn how to field-strip real, lethal firearms, they will then transition into the safe use of non-lethal firearms provided by Stoneridge Tactical for the remainder of the course.  These firearms fire non-lethal ammunition at very high muzzle velocities thereby providing the ultimate in high-accuracy, target-punching results that will clearly display your targeting ability, ust like at an outdoor range with your billistic, lethal firearm!  This is a fantastic opportunity for students to experience everything they would at an outdoor range but without the risk of injury inherent with lethal firearms!

Each student will be awarded a certificate of course completion that satisfies ORS 166.291(1)(f)(c) for Oregon Concealed Handgun certification.  A $45.00 nonrefundable deposit is required for this class.

COMPREHENSIVE ALL-INCLUSIVE CHL CERTIFICATION COURSE
CLASSROOM 4 HOURS + LIVE FIRE 4 HOURS - TOTAL 8 HOURS
(For Oregon CHL, CO-ED) - $150 
Limited to 12 students!

Our flagship concealed carry course teaches all the basic and intermediate knowledge, skills, and attitude for carrying a concealed handgun, from nomenclature, ammunition, basic teardown of your firearm, firearm function, basic targeting and handling, to malfunction and feedway stoppage clearance drills, use of dummy rounds as a training tool, emergency reloadin drills, timed drills, speed drills, drawing from concealement and much, much more.  This class is meant for those that want the entire spectrum of training out of their CHL class!  This class is perfect for brand new beginners to advanced shooters.

8-Hour Class (Classroom Time Plus Live Fire Range)

Oregon Revised Statutes require the very minimum training of classroom-only time in order to obtain a concealed handgun license. It's one thing to obtain a license to carry concealed. It's a whole different situation to prepare yourself physically and mentally for the unthinkable. The difference between the two is a lot like wanting to become a race car driver and then obtaining your ODL thinking you can jump right out on the track and win big.

 

This course is 8 hours long and includes classroom and range time learning to shoot your handgun.  Handgun rentals are available. Students learn the rules for safe gun handling; pistol parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; range rules; drawing from concealment, reloading and malfunction remediation.  This class focuses on the need for quality live-fire instruction from Oregon's most qualified firearms instructor.  You'll learn the proper draw techniques from a number of concealed positions, increasing the speed and handling of the firearm, and the need for muscle memory and competency by repetition.  You'll perform speed drills, target recognition drills, reloading drills, timed drills, malfunction and clearance drills under pressure. You'll be introduced and indoctrinated into the "Drag-The-Bag" concept of learning and shooting making you the best shooter you can be.  Students will receive classroom training addressing basic safety rules, handling skills, shooting fundamentals, storage and draw methods and more, Oregon Use-of-Force laws, concealed carry laws, and so much more. 

This course satisfies ORS 166.291 for Oregon Concealed Handgun License.  Further, it provides candidates with the much-needed hands-on, live-fire training by professional instructors.  There is no substitute for hands-on training and this course offers you the best training in both areas.  Candidates that pass this course will receive the gold leaf Handgun Safety Course Completion certificate.  This is the certificate that is needed when you apply for your Oregon CHL at the sheriff's office.

NOTE:  The course is open to anyone over the age of 16 (minors MUST be accompanied by a PAYING guardian enrolled in the class)
