There is a ScotShot class for every level of shooter, from complete beginner to NRA or USCCA instructor candidate.
You can take classes with ScotShot at several levels, and they are laid out in "tracks" of related courses, that move you from beginner to advanced skill-levels. Join wherever you think you fit - you can always go back and review:
NON-SHOOTING, FIREARMS SAFETY
Specially designed for the non-shooting members of a family where firearms are present, this class describes the design and function of firearms and focuses on how to unload them and make them safe.
INTRODUCTION TO YOUR OWN FIREARM
Specially designed for the new firearms owner and providing an orientation to firearms focused on one particular gun, this course describes the parts and function of the firearm and its particular ammunition, studies the fundamentals of shooting from a bench-rest, conducts an introductory live-fire portion and discusses cleaning, maintenance and opportunities for skill development.
THE BASICS OF A FIREARM TYPE (eg PISTOL OR RIFLE)
This course introduces a type of firearm and its ammunition in depth. For example, pistols of the semi-automatic and revolver types are studied as are single- and double-action varieties. Shooting is studied with several firearms, both in class-room and live-fire portions. Cleaning, storage and maintenance are described. Some classes have a the diagnostic examination at the end that leaves the student clear about where s/he has grasped the concepts fully. These courses do not require the student to have their own firearm - everything is provided. Of course, you can bring your own firearm if you wish.
INTRODUCTION TO DEFENSIVE FIREARMS USE, INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE HOME
These are not beginner courses and do require that the student has a good, working familiarity with their firearm, including how to fire double- and single-handed, with either hand (ie, left and right). These skills can be acquired independently via the Winchester Marksmanship Program, through private lessons with a ScotShot instructor, or both. These courses introduce concepts such as concealment and cover, shooting from behind cover, moving with a firearm, and drawing and reholstering a loaded handgun. These courses also cover legal aspects of defensive firearms use.
BECOME AN NRA OR USCCA CERTIFIED FIREARMS INSTRUCTOR
If you want to pass your skills on, and develop the Knowledge, Skills and Attitude of the next generation of shooters, ask about becoming an Instructor. It is demanding, and it does require a sense of purpose and a dedication to seeing others do well, but it is enormously satisfying.
