Yakima Valley Spirits and Hops Trail


Basic Handgun Practice at The Range

Location: Yakima

1701 Garretson Ln, Yakima, WA 98908

Every other Tuesday, 6 - 8pm.

This class is for all beginners, or those who may be somewhat familiar with handguns, but have received no formal training.  Students will be taught how to safely handle firearms, the correct stance, grip and principals of marksmanship. Students will receive both classroom and live fire instruction with the goal of confidence and comfort in handling a pistol or revolver. This class is the foundation of all our more advanced classes.


  • Firearms Safety
  • Overview of students' guns, action types, controls and features
  • How to pick up and hold a handgun safely
  • Fundamentals of accurate shooting
  • To leave confident YOU know how guns work and how to shoot them 


  • Handgun. However, if you do not yet have a gun, perfect!  Use this class time to evaluate what kind of handgun you want. Gun rentals are free of charge during this class (you only have to purchase our ammunition to shoot through the rental guns).
  • Comfortable clothing suitable for standing long periods of time. Open toed shoes or low cut clothing are not acceptable for training. A baseball cap is  highly recommended (to prevent ejected brass from falling on face and neck)
  • Hearing and Eye protection are required and available for purchase.

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to the class start time to complete the required range safety waiver and range safety video, purchase ear and eye protection if you don't already have them, and purchase ammo.
