First I willl say, this is a good forum and i am slowly learning about my XD. I will be heavely using this Forum to seek advice. I purchased an XD 9mm SC model XD9801sp06 and will be picking it up in a couple of weeks. This is my first handgun that I have owned and I have an CCW permit.
Before I purchace my first box of ammo, I plan on taking on the following class

Topics covered:
  • Firearm safety
  • Action types, gun designs, how to operate various safeties
  • Loading and unloading
  • Integrated act of firing
  • Safe storage
Basic Handgun Safety & Responsibility: "InSights Training"
In this class you will learn to handle handguns safely, load and unload them properly, shoot accurately, understand the laws concerning their use and ownership, and make a more informed decision as to whether they want to own a firearm.
Basic Handgun Safety & Responsibility should be considered a minimum for anyone who owns a firearm or lives in a household that has firearms. Teenagers are welcome if attending with an adult.
  • Gun Safety - The proper way to handle a handgun, loading and unloading a gun safely, and storage of firearm in the home
  • Marksmanship - The proper way to hold a gun, aligning the sights, and pressing the trigger
  • Familiarization with Different Types of Handguns - Students will be able to shoot a variety of handguns in different calibers (both semi-automatics and revolvers)
  • Handgun Maintenance - Disassembly, cleaning, and safe storage
  • Washington State Law - Ownership and possession, transportation, and concealed carry permits
  • Justifiable Self Defense - When is a gun legal to use in self defense, use-of-force considerations, dealing with the police after a self-defense confrontation.
If there is something that I am forgetting, please let me know and thanks in advance.
