Bel Air Gun Range Virtual Class

Due to the overwhelming amount of customers looking to take the Handgun Qualification License (HQL) Course we are now offering the course virtually through Zoom every other Saturday. These classes are from 8am-11am. The pricing for both in-person and virtual classes will remain the same at $100. You will be watching a live in-person class from the comfort of your own home. With the virtual class you will provide your email address when registering and this will be the key form of communication.

What you can expect:

  • The Friday evening before your class you will receive an email with the link for the zoom chat
  • On Saturday morning at 8am you will use the link provided to get you to your classroom
  • If you do not have a zoom account it may ask you to make one
  • Once signed in you will sit in a waiting area until everyone arrives and then the instructor will bring you into the class.
  • After your session is complete you will come in the next day, Sunday, between 8am-10am to finish the in-person live shooting and receive your qualification paperwork. We will also have a third party come in to do the live-scan fingerprints which is $60. These are needed for the HQL application through MSP. If you need help completing the application online anyone of our associates will be glad to assist.
