We focus on involving as many members of your family as possible to ensure everyone, regardless
of age, behaves appropriately when around a firearm, including teaching young children who we
teach to never touch a firearm, to leave the room, and to contact an adult.
Students come to us expecting to be treated with respect and taught in a professional manner; to teach them how to use their firearm properly. At Level 1 Firearms Safety and Training, you will never experience the “military style” mindset other instructors provide. We believe our job is to engage our students with thoughtful discussion, demonstrations and practical exercises directed at encouraging drills and followed up by live-fire exercises that will improve their firearms skills. We have both male and female instructors conducting

A Typical Training Day
When you attend an
Idaho CCW Permit Class
, there are certain state requirements that have to be met during instruction. Like any formal training event, there’s a mixture of lectures, practical demonstrations, interaction with the students, ensuring students comprehend the lessons they are taught, and allowing plenty of time to practice, ask questions, and review their lesson plan. Classes are essential broken down into logical steps that are built upon throughout the day. Students are not allowed to fall behind! We will take extra time assisting students along the way--

are too important for anyone to be left behind!
Safety lessons with our
Idaho CCW classes
begin with basic of firearm safety rules, storage, and responsibility. Students learn the 3-most fundamental rules of firearm safety: ALWAYS keep a gun pointed in a safe direction; ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger; ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready for use! We add additional rules which are designed to ensure an “accidental” discharge never occurs. Securing firearms from unauthorized access is extremely important and can prevent the needless tragedies we have witnessed in the past when an unstable person goes on a gun shooting spree. In most cases, guns are provided by unwilling family member’s who do not secure them properly-the simple act of securing firearms in a locked safe canprevent many of horrific events.
Understanding your Firearm
If you don’t understand your firearm, how it works, why it works, what size ammunition it takes, can cause serious injury to yourself and others. During this lesson, an overview of basic pistol mechanisms and their operations are discussed. We compare revolvers to semi-automatic pistols, explain their strengths and weaknesses, and focus on the student’s personal firearm of choice. This is a very interactive time as student’s “showcase” their firearm and explain why they preferred it over others (don’t worry, there’s no ammunition allowed in the class and the firearms are checked before being allowed in the class). There is an in-depth discussion on ammunition, how it works, the varying calibers and options.
Building Shooting Skills
Students who are new to firearms will learn several basic shooting styles and positions. While
inside the class, the students will conduct several “dry-fire” exercises (dry-fire means no live
ammunition). They are instructed on topics such as breath control, hold control, trigger control
and more. Students are taught the most basic shooting positions and asked to practice each of
them to find the one that best fits their comfort level. As we are building up to “live-fire” at the
range, students are provided with information about the common shooting errors that occur, how
to correct them, and how to improve upon their target acquisition. The lesson closed with a
discussion and demonstration of common pistol stoppages and how to correct them when they
