Firearms Familiarization Class

Dr. Dalecki is doing a 90-minute firearms familiarization class Wednesday evening September 16th at the FICSH house.  This is for students who have no experience with firearms; at a later time, we will go out and actually shoot a pistol using proper technique.  The class is a prerequisite for the shooting.

We will cover such things as how ammunition is constructed, how semi-automatic pistols and revolvers work, proper grip, aiming, trigger control--all to prepare students for actual shooting.

If you would like to attend, sign up on the sheet at Sheri’s desk in the CJ department by noon Wednesday.  Limited to six students.

The plan is to meet in the turnaround circle just south of Ullsvik (across from St. Augustine’s) at 6:20pm SHARP on Wednesday and proceed to the FICSH house at the farm where we’ll do the class.  If you need a ride, there is room.  Please meet there, not at the FICSH house.  

We will leave the circle at 6:20pm sharp, so if you snooze, you lose.

I also need to have you do a little homework.  One of these links explains the TAB-K approach to firearm safety, the other is a link showing mechanically how a semi-automatic pistol works:

Read and learn the following:

TAB-K Firearm Safety Rules

Watch the following:

Please note: do not bring any firearms or any ammunition to the class. All you need bring is curiousity and a willingness to learn.
