The course will be taught by local NRA Certified Instructors and will cover the basics of safe firearm handling. The class will be taught at the Cahokia Police Department Training Room. (Please DO NOT call the Cahokia PD for information.)
Why FIRST STEPS?
“To provide beginning shooters with an introduction to the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to own and use a specific pistol model safely.”
