Basic Training

The Action Pistol Group (APG) provides a comprehensive course of instruction covering basic rules of gun safety, firearms law, safe operation, gun maintenance, concealed carry techniques, situational awareness and more. The training far exceeds the Colorado State requirements for obtaining a Concealed Carry Permit. We have a mix of both male and female NRA Certified Instructors. You will participate in classroom and live fire exercises designed to quickly develop your confidence in loading and shooting your pistol. 

Students should bring the following equipment:  A firearm in good condition that has been cleaned and lubricated.  Magazines (2 or more preferred).  50 rounds of ammunition ).  Eye protection and electronic hearing protection (available to rent from APG for $10 per day).  Ear plugs or barrier ear muffs will not be acceptable for the class. A holster is NOT required for the Basic Class.

Schedule:  Classes are held the second Saturday or Sunday of the month at the Cameo Shooting and Education Complex (I-70, Exit 45).

Upon the successful completion of the course, students will receive complementary access to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife indoor range (in Grand Junction) one evening per month. This is a great opportunity to practice your shooting in a comfortable environment. An APG Range Officer will be supervising the range.
