No. Handguns are provided in our class fee for you to use. This allows our students to try several different styles and sizes and also doesn't require them to spend money on a firearm they may not like in the end. We do suggest you train with the firearm you would like to carry, if you have one.
The class length is approximately 8 hours. This is split between classroom, range and break time. Class is completed same day. PointBlank has a private indoor range and classroom. Breaks are taken throughout the day. Food and beverages are also provided at no additional cost.
We believe that every student deserves a high quality class. A longer class length gives us the ability to work hands on with each student, and answer all questions. There are hundreds of main topics to cover and it wouldn't be possible to get through all of that valuable information in a shorter time. Due to the length of your permit, you deserve to get the best info possible to keep yourself safe and legal.
