Firearms Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I’m new to shooting and eventually want to get my Concealed Handgun License (CHL), what order should I take your courses in?
A: For new shooters we recommend starting out with our Basic Handgun course before taking any other courses. Fundamentals of Handgun Shooting can be substituted in place of Basic Handgun for shooters that already have some experience and familiarity with firearms. For shooters that then want to go on and get their CHL, we recommend taking the Oregon Concealed Handgun Live Fire course, because the course features additional shooting exercises that will help further hone and improve your shooting skills and proficiency.

Q: My son or daughter is interested in learning to shoot, do you allow kids in any of your courses?
A: Yes, unless otherwise posted, we allow mature and responsible youth aged 13-17 to attend firearms courses with the supervision of an adult guardian. Both the youth and the adult have to register for the class and pay the course fee. Anyone 18 years of age or older may attend a course on their own. For youth under the age of 12, we have a Youth Firearm Safety Course that comes in a variety of formats, including live fire, that serves as an introduction to firearms, safety, and shooting.

Q: Do you require liability waivers for your live fire courses? If yes, where can I find them?
A: Yes, liability waivers will be provided on the day of the course, but can be downloaded ahead of time from out website. A link to the PDF of the waiver is located at the top of the Firearms page.

Q: Should I bring my firearm and ammunition to classroom courses?
A: No. We do not allow firearms in our classrooms unless approved by an Instructor. For live fire exercises please leave your firearms and ammunition in your vehicle until an instructor directs you to get them.

Q: How should I bring my firearms to the range?
A: Carry them unloaded in a bag or case. Once on the range they will be inspected by an Instructor.

Q: Do you allow reloaded ammo at your ranges?
A: No, for the safety of our students and staff we do not allow reloads at any of our classes or ranges.

Q: Do you allow holsters at your entry level classes?
A: No, unless specifically stated in the course description, we do not allow holsters to be used in our entry level courses.

Q: Can I wear gloves during live fire exercises?
A: Yes, if you want to wear gloves for live fire exercises you may. Gloves can create complications with trigger control and general firearm operation unless you specifically train to use them.

Q: What kind of safety equipment is required at the range?
A: Hearing protection, eye protection, closed-toe shoes, no low cut shirts, a case or gun bag for your firearm.
