ATA Pistol I
Train like a warrior to protect what’s yours at home or on the street.
This isn’t your run-of-the-mill concealed carry class. ATA Pistol I is a one-day crash course about defending yourself during a violent, close-range gunfight. We have stuffed as much information as we possibly can into this eight-hour course, and we are confident that you will have a hard time getting more for your money anywhere else. Pistol I features a great blend of classroom instruction and range time. Expect to fire 300+ rounds of pistol ammunition in dynamic, realistic drills. Great for novices and experienced shooters alike!
