Are you wanting to learn how to shoot a pistol but want more than just being shown how to load, aim, and fire a pistol? At Mountain Lake Firearms Academy we provide a classroom program where you will learn the fundamentals of pistols and ammunition, how to select a pistol that fits you, and the basics of how it operates and what to expect when shooting it.
