New One-Day Classes for the New Year

InSights has added some targeted one-day classes to the schedule for 2015. Whether you are looking to fill a particular niche, or just can’t fit a two-day class into your busy life, check out what we have here.

New 1-day Semi-auto Handgun Class
If you have taken Basic Handgun or Handgun Safety and Marksmanship and want to get more familiar with your gun before General Defensive Handgun, take a look at Handgun Fundamentals. This class helps you get more comfortable with your semi-auto. We will review handgun safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship, and we will work on loading and unloading, unholstering and holstering, ready positions, clearing malfunctions, and we will cover recommended gear. This class will ensure that your handling skills are ready for GDH, and it is also a great way to break in a new gun.

Required equipment: Semi-automatic pistol and two magazines (minimum), 200 rounds of FMJ brass-cased ammunition (no steel or aluminum cased or steel jacketed), hearing and eye protection, holster and mag pouch for your model of gun.  A Blade-tech or similar Kydex OWB holster is a good start. NO Blackhawk Serpa holsters allowed. We have some Glock holsters/pouches available for loan if you are shooting a Glock. A CPL or documentation of good character is also required.

New 1-day Handgun Competition Class
Competitive shooting is a great way to work on speed and accuracy under stress — but there is a learning curve. Handgun Competition Prep will help you get started in USPSA or IDPA pistol competition. We will review handgun safety and teach you the range procedures specific to competition ranges — such as loading and unloading, and hot and cold ranges. We will practice movement and barricade shooting. We will familiarize you with rules, scoring, reading the results, and we will shoot various classifiers. Gear will be discussed in regards to each division for competition shooting. We recommend that the student read current USPSA and IDPA rule books prior to class (but not required). This action-packed one-day class will get you ready to have a safe, successful, and fun day at the match.

Required equipment:  Full-size handgun with a minimum of three magazines, 300 rounds of factory brass-cased FMJ ammunition, rigid OWB Kydex-style holster that will work for training, minimum of two magazine pouches, hearing and eye protection.

New 1-day Revolver Class
Revolver Fundamentals helps you get familiar with your wheel gun. Semi-autos may hog the spotlight but revolvers can be tough, reliable guns for carry or home defense. We will review handgun safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship, and work on loading and unloading, unholstering and holstering, ready positions, and discuss recommended gear.

Required equipment: Modern revolver (no cowboy-style single action guns), 200 rounds of FMJ brass-cased ammunition (no steel or aluminum cased or steel jacketed), 2 speed loaders or speed strips (minimum), holster for your model of gun, speed loader
pouch/speed strip holder, hearing and eye protection. A CPL or documentation of good character is also required.

New 1-day Rifle Class
And we didn’t forget about rifles. Whether you are new to AR-15’s or just want to break in your new rifle, AR-15 Fundamentals is for you. We will cover firearms safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship, AR-15 function and nomenclature, sights and zeroing, loading and unloading, ready positions, clearing malfunctions, as well as cleaning and maintenance. This class is also a great way to get tuned up for General Defensive Rifle.

Required equipment: AR-15 rifle, two magazines (minimum), 200 rounds of FMJ brass-cased ammunition (no steel case or steel core), sling (basic military-style 2-point sling is fine), hearing and eye protection. A CPL or documentation of good character is also required.
