Livingston Police Department - Shooting Range


Introduction to Basic Firearms

One-Day Class – 6 Hours – 9am to 4pm (with one hour for lunch)

Livingston Police Department Shooting Range (1675 Bird Street, Livingston, CA 95334)

This course is designed for the new shooter or someone with limited exposure and training with handguns. This class is appropriate for ages 13 and up, based on the child’s maturity. Children under age 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent and the parent must be present throughout the entire course. The topics to be discussed and trained are:

  • Introduction to the Handgun; Safety, Nomenclature, Care, Cleaning, and Maintenance of the Semi-Automatic Pistol or Revolver
  • The Four Core Safety Rules and How They Apply to You
  • Introduction to the Seven Fundamentals of Shooting; Grip, Stance, Sight Alignment, Sight Picture, Trigger Control, Breathing, and Follow Through
  • Loading and Unloading the Handgun

This instruction is designed to go slow, ensure the shooter is well grounded in the fundamentals, exhibits the highest level of safety, respect for the firearm, and to have FUN.

This class will be capped a ratio of one instructor to every five students to ensure plenty of attention and hands on training by the students. We at Trident Firearms Academy want you to be comfortable and safe with your first formal firearms training. We will not push students to perform at a pace that is not safe, or they are not comfortable with. Shooting Should Be Fun! We will utilize bullseye targets for teaching the fundamentals and a gaming target or two for a non-competitive fun shoot, time permitting.

$100.00 Tuition per Student
