Introduction to Firearm Class - Methods Class This class will cover basic types of firearms, firearms safety and an introduction to selecting and purchasing firearms. Please do not bring any firearms to class.  If you are interested in learning more about your particular firearm, please contact the instructor.  There is no exam/test at the end of this course. I do hope to take everyone to the firing range for some live fire. If we go to the range they charge about $15.00 to use the range.  This is an additional fee. If you would like to bring lunch, snacks, and/or drinks you may do so.  We will be stopping for lunch at about noon for about 30 to 45 minutes if you would like to go get food. Please bring exact cash ($40.00) to pay for the class + $15.00 for the range.   Thank you. Grace Pratt TPWD Instructor
