Atlanta Motorcycle & Handgun Schools
|Before you purchase or acquire a firearm, the responsible step for
you should be training in the safety and use of firearms. Whether
your interests lie in recreational shooting, competitive shooting,
hunting, personal protection, home defense, historical reenactment,
collecting, or simply exercising your constitutional rights, training
is critical to proficient use and overall enjoyment of your firearm.
The ownership of firearms is a serious undertaking. The likelihood
of someone being seriously injured or killed, not to mention the opportunity
for tremendous property damage, all of which could result in lawsuits
costing your freedom or everything you and your family own is just
too great a chance to take.
Firearms can be a source of great satisfaction and peace of mind
with the right training. We have discovered defensive handgun use
is one of the subjects that does not easily lend itself to self-teaching.
Very little of what a defensive hand gunner needs to know can be
learned from a book or from websites. Like most physical skills,
defensive handgunnery is best learned through hands-on training
with a professional instructor.
Keep it simple takes on more meaning when a person
is placed under stress. One can hear or read about the degradation
of fine motor skills, but nothing reinforces this like having it
happen to you personally. Yes, weaknesses are exposed in one's own
skill and possibly equipment. It is better to experience this during
training than in a real-life situation.
Training and focused practice are the only way to develop the skill
necessary to properly react during an emergency. The moment that
you need to use your weapon in self defense will be the most stressful
of your life. Your performance and handling of the situation is
guaranteed to fall back to the level of your training. If you have
no training, chances are that the outcome will not be what you expect.

Atlanta Motorcycle & Handgun Schools offers the same private,
personalized lessons to handgun customers that we offer to our motorcycle
riding customers. The times shown are for normal NRA group sessions.
Since our classes are one-on-one, the actual time may vary and is
normally shorter. Once we meet an objective, we will move on. This
may take longer in the group sessions. The private sessions normally
meet objectives quicker allowing for extra shooting time.
With one-on-one instruction, we are able to closely watch your
shooting technique and offer advice immediately. As the saying goes,
"Practice makes perfect, only when you are practicing perfectly."
In group classes offered by many instructors , students are given
free range to shoot and only provided assistance when requested.
As a new shooter, we may not know when to ask the right question!
