We’ve trained thousands of individuals in our Introduction to Handgun courses.

Now, Buds Gun Shop & Range is offering the next logical step in your firearms education:

Intermediate Handgun!

In our Introduction to Handgun course, you learned firearms safety and the basics for proper hold, grip, sighting, and shooting handguns.

While it’s clear you’ve enjoyed this experience, it’s also clear that you want and need more.

Our Intermediate Handgun course is designed to teach:

1) a review of firearms safety rules and storage;

2) to be more comfortable with handling, operating, and shooting your own handgun;

3) to get better at aiming your gun and getting shots to hit where you want;

4) smoother trigger operation and more trigger time with instructor oversight;

5) understanding reloading with simple magazine changes (for pistols) or speedloaders (for revolvers);

6) an introduction to a defensive mindset.

All in a safe and fun environment!


Important Prerequisites!

1) This class is for those who have prior handgun experience only!   

You must have already taken our Introduction to Handgun class, or have similar introductory experience.   If unsure of experience email us at  

If not, sign up and attend either our Introduction to Handgun session BEFORE taking this class.

2) You should already be familiar with basic controls on YOUR handgun and understand safe operation of your handgun.

Materials required:

1) You will need to bring YOUR OWN HANDGUN (UNLOADED) and unloaded magazines or (optional:) speedloaders.

We recommend a semiautomatic pistol chambered in the calibers of 380 ACP, 9 mm, 357 SIG, 40 SW, or 45 ACP, or a double-action revolver chambered in the calibers of .22 WMR (Win. Mag. Rimfire), 32 H&R, 327 Federal Magnum, 9mm, or 38 SPL (larger calibers are OK if you can shoot them effectively).

2) You will need at minimum two (2) magazines for your pistol, or one (1) speedloader for your revolver.

*PLEASE NOTE*: A magazine loader such as an Uplula loader will definitely help you load your magazines much easier and faster!

You will want to have a magazine loader to get the most out of this class.

3) You need 50 to 100 rounds of ammunition for your handgun.

(Ammunition may be purchased from our range desk at competitive prices.)

4) We recommend that you bring your own eye and ear protection–electronic shooting muffs are preferred. However, if you do not yet own your own muffs, we can provide a non-electronic model.

Class Duration: 90 minutes on our training range.

Please plan to arrive 15-20 minutes early to sign range waivers.
