About the Event

Class Description

This 1/2-day course lays the foundation for all future pistol training. Class material is appropriate for both MD & PA residents. Safety, range etiquette, clearing, loading, equipment, fundamentals of fire, common mistakes, and firearm safety mindset are the main subjects tackled in this essential course. Though this training is designed for beginners, the subject matter and techniques allow students to build realistic skills that can survive the test of stress and small time constraints.

This class will expand upon the basic requirements set forth by the State of Maryland for the application of a Maryland Handgun Qualification License (HQL).  In addition to those requirements, students will learn about selection of a firearm based on purpose & planned usage, care & cleaning of their firearm, and basic trauma care.  We will shoot more rounds than the single round required by Maryland law. The intent is to start building muscle memory in the mechanics of using a firearm.

If you are NOT a Maryland resident, this class will teach basic firearm safety with live fire.  We also cover Pennsylvania law.

Maryland Requirements

State Firearm Law - Overview of the State firearm laws, including discussion of what constitutes a regulated firearm, how to properly purchase or transfer a firearm, where allowed to carry or transport a firearm, when necessary to possess a carry permit, who is prohibited from possessing firearms, and state law relating to minors, permissible levels of force, and use of deadly force.

Home Firearm Safety - Overview of firearm and firearm safety in the home, including discussion of access to minors, locking and storing of firearms, and use of safety devices, such as secure lock boxes.

Firearm Mechanisms and Operation - Overview of the proper operation and safe handling of a firearm, including cleaning and maintenance, the loading and unloading of ammunition, and the differences between revolvers and semi-automatic firearms.

Operation and Handling Demonstration - Orientation component that demonstrates the person’s safe operation and handling of a firearm, to include a “live fire” component in which the applicant safely shoots the firearm.

The class material for Handgun 101 - Basic Firearm Safety Class is derived from the USCCA's "Concealed Carry & Home Defense Fundamentals" book, but does NOT grant the student with the required training to apply for a Maryland Wear & Carry permit.

A Basic Firearm Safety Training Certificate will be issued to each student at the successful completion of class.  Some states will accept this as their requirement for training to apply for a concealed handgun permit. If you have questions, please speak with the instructor prior to registering. 

The intent of this class is to teach basic firearm safety as required to apply for the State of Maryland Handgun Qualification License.  This is NOT a concealed carry & home defense course.  By registering, you acknowledge this information.

All students will be required to sign a waiver & hold harmless agreement before class releasing Donald K. Miller II, SAFE Firearms Training, LLC and Seitzland Rifle Club of any responsibility after the class.  SAFE Firearms Training, LLC does carry liability insurance for any issues that arise during the class. Surfaces will be cleaned prior to class, but students do attend at their own risk.
