    Gun instruction classes provide safety training that should help individuals fire their ammunition precisely. Regardless of whether you want to use your gun for hunting, self defense, or sport, many of these classes can provide the training that you need to use different types of firearms. Many gun instruction and safety training classes take place at indoor and outdoor gun ranges. This gives the instructor enough room to teach students how to grip the handle properly and aim at a specific target. They can also use these spaces to help students learn how to point their barrels and differentiate between the reactions that they will get from pistols and rifles. Some of the classes even have courses that are designed to teach students how to use self defense tactics. The army uses these courses to train soldiers before they go into war, but individuals can also use these types of courses to teach them how to hone their reflexes. Chances are that the gun instruction class will ask you to do more than learn how to control your weapon as you shoot at targets and defend yourself. You will also need to learn about gun law and safety. This includes learning about the different parts of the barrel, grip, trigger, and shells. The academy might provide a study manual that helps you learn about the different gun control laws that affect your area. Manuals should include chapters that will teach you to protect yourself and others, participate in shooting sports, and hunt without breaking the law.
