Handgun Master's Test Range Day
FAS range days give Alumni an opportunity to practice skills you've developed during your training. This range day will give you some warm up practice and run at our Handgun Master's Test. The only other time the handgun master's test is run is during our Level 4: Advanced Defensive Handgun class.
*Class Moved to Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday 5/23*
