Introduction to Handgun Class – September 16 – Photos of the Day

The free Introduction to Handgun Class presented by the Fitchville Conservation League is funded in part by a grant of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Sport Fish & Wildlife Restoration Foundation.

The Lead Instructor Wayne Kiser opened the class with a welcome to the 19 persons in the class, and the volunteer FCL instructors.  He introduced Huron County Wildlife Officer, Nathan Kaufman.   The four safety rules for handling Firearms were presented.  A brief description of the various types of handguns were presented, demonstrated and discussed .  The concept of the MASTER EYE was presented and each person was shown how to determine it.  The reasons for Ear and eye protection were explained.  The legal responsibility of owning and firing a firearm was discussed at length.  The class went to the pistol range and learned to load and fire a handgun.

A fun time was had by all.  Be sure to like FCL on Facebook

A quote by Jeff Cooper, "Owning a handgun doesn't make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician."
