Handgun Training

Maryland Handgun Qualification License (HQL)



All persons, unless exempt, must complete a state-mandated, four-hour handgun safety course, prior to the purchasing or “receiving” a handgun in the State of Maryland.

Wear/Carry Instruction

We offer a 16-hour training course for new carry permits, or an 8-hour training course for permit renewals.

Defensive Pistol

To all shooters, we strive to bring the most up-to-date information in a comprehensive yet simple way.

Private Instruction

In addition to the structured classes for the state-mandated training, we offer hourly sessions designed to assist the public at all levels and interests of handgun use.

Why consider Appropriate Action LLC services?

Learning to shoot can be a confusing and daunting task, due to the nature of firearms alone.  Guns are neither good nor bad, yet they can be dangerous.  Our appropriate action and approach to instruction goes deeper into the science behind responsible firearm ownership.  The one-on-one, or small family and friends group training, offers the unique opportunity to ask questions and perform handgun operation without group or peer pressure with strangers.  It’s an environment much more conducive towards learning, rather than just observing or passing up a question due to time constraints or the concept of a “dumb question.”

“Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.”
