In accordance with the State of Ohio Department of Health order issued on July 7th, Vance Outdoors respectfully requests our customers to wear a face covering into all of our retail store locations. If you are unable to wear a mask due to medical reasons, you are exempt from this mandate. If you are not wearing one when you arrive, we will assume that you fit this exemption. Due to HIPAA and your right to privacy, we will not ask you about your condition and we will welcome you as we would any other customer.

Defensive Handgun: Basics

Defensive Handgun: Basics

  • Price: $100.00

Prerequisite: Gun handling experience similar to a Concealed Handgun License Class or equivalent training.


This is the first level of training in the Vance Outdoors Defensive Handgun Series. This series is designed to help you become a well-rounded and well-trained armed citizen.

Basic Defensive Handgun concentrates on the foundational skills to be able to operate a handgun, such as drawing from the holster, reloading, and multiple targets. Important fundamentals like grip, sight picture/sight alignment, and trigger management will be emphasized. The class will also have a brief discussion on the moral, ethical, and legal use of force for inside the home as well as on the street.

For this class you will need a reliable pistol, strong side holster, magazine carrier, spare magazines (we recommend at least 3), sturdy belt, eye and ear protection, and 300 rounds of ammunition.
