An introduction to firearms – two days

This is a condensed version of the trade course and is perfect for those who are interested in firearms or working on the periphery of the industry, such as the media.

Day one – Firearms safety and the law; the history of firearms.

Everyone who works with or comes into contact with firearms needs to understand the safety and legal implications. The first part of this course will give attendees an overview and if they put the theory into practice, allow them to work safely and legally.

The afternoon session details the history of firearms and will give attendees an overview of the unique and fascinating journey of development, our modern firearms have gone through. With live examples and demonstrations, this part of the course really goes with a bang.

Day two – Firearm manufacture, Craftsmanship and features with Peter Boxall; followed by an afternoon of shooting with Peter Boxall and Peter Harris

Understanding the craftsmanship and manufacturing principles of firearms is important when buying, selling or working with them as their methods will impact on price and working practice. This part of the course shows attendees how modern and traditional firearms are manufactured, with a tour of a working factory, demonstrations and examples for every aspect.

The afternoon’s shooting is an opportunity to put all the knowledge gained into practice, with pattern plating, the opportunity to shoot a variety of firearms and examples or explanations of different shooting disciplines.
