Learn to shoot handguns – Young Adults 10 to 18 years old:

North Lawrence Fish & Game and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife will be offering a Learn to shoot handgun training class.  Scheduled on the following Sundays at NLFG Club House from 9:00 am to approximately 3:00 pm.  Starting young adults off early in the handgun shooting sports can build into a lifetime of enjoyment and build self-confidence and discipline.  Accordingly, we would like to get them off to the right start.  This class is offered free of charge.  Current ownership of a handgun is not required to take this course.  22 Target pistols and ammunition will be available for use at no cost in this class.  

We will cover safety, selection of firearms, proper manipulation and maintenance of your firearm, ammunition selection and proper hold and stance with live range time.  


  • Your personal handgun if you have one.  This class in not limited to 22 rimfire only, but students must be able hold and shoot their handguns (9mm and 38 calibers only).  Instructors will determine whether or not the student will be permitted to use those caliber’s.  No magnum caliber ammunition permitted.
  • Proper ammunition for your handgun.
  • Eye protection (glasses if you wear them and or safety glasses). Furnished if needed.
  • Hearing protection (ear plugs or ear muffs).  Furnished if needed.
  • No open toed shoes or loose-fitting tops – hot brass can be somewhat disconcerting!
  • No live ammunition in the classroom.  Keep it in your car until we go to the range.
  • Parent or guardian must accompany students.

Pre-registration is required as we are limiting this class to (15) people.  We will have trained instructors to assist each person.  A signed waiver of liability will be required at the time of the class.
