You are not required to bring the application. But, I would bring it as I will point out a couple of things that will help you.

Must I fill any forms prior to class?      

NO. Ther are no forms to fill out prior to coming to my OK Handgun License class.  You are not required to fill out the OK Handgun License application prior to class BUT you can if you want to.

Do I need to have my pictures with me when I come to the OK Handgun License class conducted by Firearms On Target?

NO.  You only need to have your pictures when you go to the county sheriff's office or in Tulsa county, they will take your pictures for you.

What time is your class?

Please see the location and times of classes listed before the registration calendar.  Please be on time!  DO NOT USE YOUR GPS to find the Tulsa Gun Club - PLEASE SEE THE DIRECTIONS SECTION BELOW OR THE 'DIRECTIONS' TAB ON THIS WEB SITE.  IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHERE THESE GUN RANGES ARE LOCATED, YOU MIGHT WANT TO SPEND A MINUTE BEFORE CLASS TO LOOK THEM UP.

What about lunch?                                                                                               

Lunch as of December 2017 will be a working lunch starting at 11:30 or you can just wait and eat after the class is over.

Should I fill out my application online vs. filling out a paper version?  – Maybe.

There are two paths regarding filling out the OK Handgun License application.

#1). Starting November 1, 2014, the state has requested that you fill out your application online and transmit this document to the state.

#2) Download the Application, and fill it out.

If you choose #2:   You turn the OK Handgun License application into the County Sheriff, not to Firearms On Target at class time.  Please bring the application to the class, I will point out a couple of helpful points.

http://www.ok.gov/osbi/Handgun_Licensing/Click_Here_to_Apply_Online.html”.   You will still have to go to the county sheriff to complete the process.

How accurate to I have to be for the shooting portion?  We shoot at 9 to 15 feet.  You are judged on your ability to safely handle a handgun and follow the instructor’s commands.

How physical is the class?  We are in a classroom setting for the majority of the class.  For the shooting portion, you will need to be able to shoot 50 rounds either standing or sitting.

What is the class like?  I teach you the most applicable statutes of the OK Self Defense Act and most importantly the conditions that have to be present before you can legally pull or use a handgun for self defense.  I try to keep the class moving and we take frequent short breaks.

Do I need eye and ear protection?  Yes, either bring your own or I will furnish them for you.  You are required to bring a BASEBALL hat or visor for each individual.

What type of handgun to you provide.  .22 caliber semi-automatic handguns.  They are light with low recoil and fun to shoot.

OR you can rent a variety of .380, 9mm, 40 S&W guns.  Just let me know at registration if you want to rent a gun.  Shooting different guns always adds to your overall understanding and ability with handguns.  Cost is $10 plus ammo.

How do I register for you class?   Pre-payment and registration are required.  Do not come to the class without first registering.  First determine the date of the class you wish to attend, then pre-pay for the class.   By;

  1. Web site, the calendar registration and payment option.

  2. Call 918.857.5106 or email me and I can email you an invoice.

  3. Pay over the phone.  Call me and I can take your payment and reserve a spot in the class for you.

Payment can me made with Credit card, Debit Card, or PayPal.

After I have received your payment,  you will receive a Confirmation of Payment Received document and instructions about the class.

How long does it take to receive my license from the state.   At this time, Dec 2017, licenses are being mailed to the address on your application withing  9-11 weeks after submitting your information to the sheriff’s office.

What if I have a ‘Permanent Victim’s Protective Order’?    As of November 1, 2013, after you take my OK Handgun License class, if you have a Permanent Victim’s Protective Order, the sheriff can issue you a six month temporary license, at no cost to you, while your permanent license paperwork is being processed by the state.

How can I transport my gun to your class?   Place your gun in a ‘gun case’ and the case must be completely or partially visible in your passenger compartment.  OR place the gun in your trunk or locked external compartment.  Gun must be unloaded. Do not place your gun in your glove compartment or center console.

Where are you located?  See the ‘Directions’ tab on this site.

Hwy 169 North to Owasso and exit at 56th Street North. http://www.okhighways.com/112604/us169at56th.JPG

 United Stated Shooting Academy. (USSA)

6500 E. 66th St. North Tulsa OK, 74117. Exit highway 75 on 66 Street North and go approximately 1 mile east to the Tulsa Police Academy and United States Shooting Academy.  They share the same concrete driveway but jog to your left at the entrance to the United States Shooting Academy, go through the chain link gate and take the long driveway to the club house.

These directions are on my web site www.firearmsontarget.com under the ‘Welcome’ heading and then click on ‘Directions”.

What if my schedule changes and I cannot make the class?  You can reschedule for up to six (6) months from your original class date  if you contact me by at least twenty four hours prior to the class start date and time.  Sorry, but Firearms On Target does not allow cancellations with money back.  You can reschedule with a 24 hour notice to Firearms On Target prior to class start date/time.

Can the people in my party share a gun?    If you bring your gun and ammo, more than one person IN YOUR PARTY can shoot this gun.  Some people who come together share a gun, this is OK.  No third party will shoot your gun.

What if I need to leave early?    Contact me and I will work to see you shoot first at the range and get out asap.  To obtain your Certificate, you will need to complete the following modules: class, safety and handgun operation module, test, and range qualification.

What if I have a large party, do you do discount?   Discounts for a large party will be considered.  Give me a call.

Do you conduct your classes other than Saturday, Sunday, or a week day? Yes, let me know which day would work for your group and I can schedule a class.  A minimum of 6 people is needed for a class.  Extra charges may apply.

Class Size is Limited.  Pre-Registration is required, so register and pre-pay to reserve your seat in the class.

Does it matter which handgun I qualify with?

First of all, there is a caliber limitation and size limitation and other limitations per state law that are applicable to this class and carry.

Regarding calibers. The gun your carry and the gun you qualify with must be at the largest a .45 ACP caliber or of a smaller caliber.   That means you can qualify with any caliber up to a .45 ACP, i.e. .380, 9mm, 40, .45, etc.

Next, if you qualify with a semi-auto, then your license will read that your can carry a ) semi-auto, 2) revover 3) derringer.

If you qualify with a REVOLVER, then your license will say that you can only carry a revolver or a derringer.

For Example:  You could qualify with a .40 S&W M&P Service size semi-auto, then choose to carry a .380 Ruger LCP.  You could qualify with a .22 semi-auto and carry a 9mm semi-auto.

I would advise that you qualify with a semi-auto and not a revovler.  That way your license has no action-type restrictions.

PART B.  

I my opinion it matters a great deal which gun you range qualify with in terms of your safety and liability.  First of all, if you ever need to use your gun in a self defense shooting, your handgun training and knowledge of your gun  will come under attack at a trial.  Are you a  compentent,  knowledgeable, and a responsible gun owner, one who practices often with their gun?  Or, do you leave it in a box and never shoot it.   So, shoot your gun as much as you can, once a month, and use the OK Handgun License Class as an opportunity to shoot your gun and obtain more  familiarization with your gun.  This might be a big thing if you ever find yourself defending your use of a gun in a court.  I would advise that you keep a written shooting/range record.

Is the gun I range qualify with at your class the gun that I must carry?

NO. The gun that you qualify with at the range has no barring as to what gun you can carry with your handgun license except the caliber must be  .45 ACP caliber or less restriction.
