The classroom portion of this course will be taught the afternoon prior to the live-fire portion which will be done at the range. Classroom and range locations change since we train at different locations. Currently live fire will be done at either Joe Foss Shooting Complex in Buckeye and Ben Avery Shooting Complex in Phoenix.
