Interesting question that one. The answer depends on several factors.
The first one would be why are you interesting in shooting handguns?
Next would be what firearms training courses if any you already have attended and with what firearms?
Next would be how happy you are with your current gun handling and shooting abilities?
Finally you might ask yourself what you know about legal restrictions that affect your use of the firearm.
Please click here for a discussion what sort of training might be appropriate for you.
No single course you can take will produce real competence with a handgun. Firearm courses teach knowledge, skills and attitude but competence takes time, sometimes a lot of time and it takes high quality practice. A good example in another field would be golf. You can take all of the golf lessons you want but if you do not go out and play on a regular basis you will not be a good golfer. The same holds true for shooting a handgun.
The logical progression depends on your current state of competence and your goals. Please click here for a more detailed discussion.

The second amendment is supposed to protect the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. It does that to some extent, however since the Bill of Rights became law states, counties and cities have restricted that right to one extent or another.
Federal law specifies some restrictions as to what kind of handguns can be kept, how they must be purchased and who can legally purchase one. There are also some federal laws that affect transport of firearms.
Most of the law that address how we keep and use firearms in Georgia are, in fact state law.
Georgia is one of the more gun friendly states but there are restrictions in effect and if you are not aware of them you could end up being charged with an offense about which you were completely unaware and which could negate your right to keep and bear arms.
If you have included firearms in your personal protection strategy you really need to understand what your rights are with respect to the use of force, specifically the use of deadly force. If you do not understand these laws and you end up using or threatening to use a firearm in what you believe to be a clear instance of self-defense you could easily end up being convicted of a felony simply because you were operating under the assumption that common sense should prevail.
Common sense and the law occasionally but not always intersect. It is not something that should be left to chance. Click here to see how we address these issues with a five hour, sixty five dollar class.
