    I brought my girlfriend to this class to get her more comfortable with my hobby and she loved it. This class taught the exact information she was looking for to get more comfortable with the idea of guns. The class covered basic safety and handgun components as well as gave everybody the chance to practice with three different guns. My only warning is that the classroom is a little cold, so dress in layers.
