About the Event

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.

The class material for Women’s Handgun 1 - Basic Firearm Safety Class / MD HQL is derived from the USCCA's "Women's Handgun & Self-Defense Fundamentals" book, but does NOT grant the student with the required training to apply for a Maryland Wear & Carry permit. The intent of this class is to teach basic firearm safety as required to apply for the State of Maryland Handgun Qualification License. By registering, you acknowledge this information. 

Pennsylvania has no requirements, so this training is for your safe use and handling of your firearm. This class is NOT a full concealed handgun class. If your desire is to carry a concealed handgun, it is recommended you attend Handgun 2. Handgun 1 is not a requirement for Handgun 2. If you are new to firearms, it is advisable to take Handgun 1 and then Handgun 2 will be a refresher on the basics of handgun safety. 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. All students will be required to electronically 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. Training is valid for 3 years and must be completed prior to submitting an application for a MD Handgun Qualification License. NOT INCLUDED: digital LiveScan fingerprinting ($50-$65) and Maryland State license fee ($50.00).
