View Full Version : New From Fresno

Hello to all !
My buddy told me about this site, as I am new to guns. I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can.
If there's a good place to get basic handgun training in the Fresno area, please let me know. My daughter wants to learn the basics also, but she's only 15.
I just ordered a new Glock 17 with night sights for my HD weapon.

Nick: Welcome. Glad to see your daughter is interested. Back when I was shooting at the Richmond Range, they had teen shooters and there was a girls team. I believe they were using .22 rimfire. I saw the targets from a match, most all center ring.

Check out DFT (http://dftraining.net/). A little pricey, but from what I understand he is good. He trains out of Sun Mtn Gun Club in Coarsegold.

This place will drain your wallet and any extra time you may have, but it's IMO the best group of people I have come to know without knowing (if you know what I mean) :)

Welcome from Madera; Go to the Range and ask Will for a class schedule. As mentioned above, Rudy at Sun Mountain is also excellent. See you around!

Welcome to Calguns, another recommendation for DFT here.
Sher at The Range teaches a women's basic handgun & CCW class (http://www.fresnoccw.com/CCW/COURSES/Entries/2011/4/30_WOMEN%E2%80%99S_HANDGUN_SAFETY_%26_CCW__saturda y%2C_jan_22.html) that would be a good option for your daughter.
Another option that'd be great for you and your daughter to attend together is an Appleseed shoot (http://www.appleseedinfo.org/search-states.php?filter=CA&statename=California), it's basic/intro rifle marksmanship that is definitely a family friendly program. Good curriculum and instructors, in my experience with them, next one here in Fresno is May 7-8.
