About Us

Kirk Whatley - NRA Certified Instructor and Range Safety Officer

Would you take a Driver's Ed class if they never let you drive a car?

 

Too many NRA Basic Pistol classes never even let you fire a firearm.  And others may only let you shoot 3 or 5 rounds.  

What good is that?

At Whatley  Training LLC's Basic Pistol Class you'll have the opportunity to fire a  total of 100 or more rounds from a variety pistols.  

You'll  have the  opportunity to shoot both revolvers and semi-automatics.  

You'll shoot  the most popular target caliber of all time, the .22 long rifle, along  with .380, 9mm, .38 caliber, .45ACP and others.

Safety will always be Job #1 also.

Look,  you're taking an Basic Pistol Class to either apply for your MA License  To Carry (LTC) or just to learn more about pistols 

because someone in  your life owns them and you want to be safe around them, right?

If  you're going for your LTC, why not fire both revolvers and  semi-automatics and a variety of calibers to learn what works for you.  

If  you just want to know how to be safe around pistols, we can help you  with that and help you overcome any fears of shooting them, too. 

We're here to get you experience and help make you comfortable!
