  • General and NRA Certified Classes Available.

    Several training classes are available to TCRGC members and non-members and are taught by NRA Certified Instructors. If you are genuinely interested in taking one or more of these classes, please contact: Phil@TCRGC.org.

    1. Michigan CCW (NRA’s - Personal Protection in the Home)
    This is a minimum eight (8) hour course that generally takes 9-10 hours on a single Saturday. This course meets the legal requirements of Michigan Public Act 719 (2002). It includes a minimum one hour from a highly qualified attorney (with excellent firearms skills) on the legal aspects of Concealed Carry. Students will be expected to bring a handgun that is sighted-in and reliable and about 100 rounds of your ammunition. You will receive a 200 page NRA book and must pass both written and shooting tests prior to receiving a certificate of completion that is needed in order to apply for a Michigan Concealed Pistol License. The cost to TCRGC members is $125. Please note the pre-reqs to this class at bottom of this page.

    2. Basic Introduction to Handguns”
    This is a three (3) hour introduction course that is oriented toward pending, and/or new, handgun owners. Students will learn the rules for safe gun handling; the parts and operation of a handgun; ammunition; and shooting fundamentals including proper stance, grip, sight alignment, and trigger squeeze. Completion of this course meets the requirements to take the CCW/CPL course at TCRGC, Inc. Contact Shannan@TCRGC.org to sign up.

    3. A "quicky" basic handgun orientation can be available to new shooters on a more informal basis. This training is provided by experienced club range officers using their personal handguns. It would cover basic firearm/range safety, basic firearm operation, basic shooting techniques, and live range time. Training would run run about 45 minutes and cost would be the normal $15 for A Daily Limited Membership and $5 for range time. Students must supply the .22LR ammunition. This training would need to be scheduled in advance through Phil@TCRGC.org and would occur during normal open range hours. No certificate is issued and this orientation does NOT qualify one to take a CPL class.

    Prior to be registered for a CCW/CPL class, students should be able to do all of the following:

    State and demonstrate safe gun handling skills.

    Adjust their sights correctly to change the point of bullet impact.

    Adequately disassemble their handgun and demonstrate safe cleaning procedures.

    And shoot three 5 shot groups that are smaller than nine inches at a distance of 15 feet.

    The CCW/CPL class is not a class for new or novice handgun shooters. Those interested in a CPL permit, that can not demonstrate basic handgun safety and marksmanship should take Shannan's Basic Introduction to Handguns course first.
