Class Logistics - DSF1
Defensive Shooting Fundamentals - Level 1

What do you need to bring?

  • Appropriate clothing for the weather

    • Indoor classroom is heated/cooled, but we will be outdoors to shoot - rain or shine or snow.

    • The outdoor shooting area is covered, but not enclosed.

    • Most shooting will be done out in the open. Plan appropriately!!!

    • Closed toe shoes are required, but if the ground is 'squishy', you'll want appropriate boots.

  • Food/drink

    • Class is all-day. Bring appropriate snacks and lunch.

    • We will take a break to sit-down and eat indoors. There is a Rutter's about 5-minutes away if you need to go get food either before class or at lunch time.

    • There is a soda machine and I'll have water and coffee.

  • Classroom Materials

    • Pen & paper for notes

  • Shooting related items - if you have them

    • Eye & ear protection

      • Bring your own, but I will have some available to borrow or buy.

      • I highly recommend electronic ear protection with gel cups. You'll be wearing them ALL day with lots of instructions. You'll want to be able to hear as well as be comfortable.

    • Range equipment

      • You MUST bring your own firearm, preferably your daily carry / concealed carry handgun.

      • You MUST bring a matching holster to your firearm. I recommend and prefer you use an outside the waistband holster, but inside the waistband is allowed.  Appendix is ok if that is your daily carry setup.

      • You will be drawing from the holster and reholstering a loaded handgun ALL DAY! Make sure you are comfortable doing this with your setup!!

      • You MUST have at least a single spare magazine and magazine holder, worn on your belt. 2 spare magazines with a double magazine holder is better, but not required.

        • I may have some you can borrow or buy - check with me.

        • I can also order you some spare magazines and magazine holders.

        • You can also order a double magazine holder from Amazon.

      • You MUST have at least 300 rounds of ammunition.

        • We will have extra 9mm ammunition for sale at market rates. (cash/Venmo only)

      • All targets will be provided

  • Location logistics

    • Address for Seitzland Rifle Club is 3938 Bowser Rd, New Freedom, PA 17349

    • There is a long driveway that runs along a farmer's field and a row of trees.  Follow that back through the woods and we'll be in the building at the end of the driveway. Park anywhere and come on in.

    • Class begins at 9 am.
