Snub Nose Pistol Class

Snub nose revolvers continue to be one of the most popular pistols on the market.  Even compared to today’s high capacity semi-automatic pistols, the snubbie may be an effective defensive tool. However, it takes specialized training and a commitment on the shooter’s part to learn the snubbie’s strengths and overcome its limitations.  Snub Nose Pistol Fundamentals is specifically designed to teach you how to get the most out of your revolver.

NOTE:  Students will be required to provide their own snub nose revolver (barrel length less than 3 inches).  Students must bring at least two speed strips or speed loaders.
