Module 1: Shoot with Handguns

Practical Shooting with Pistol or Revolver

Learn to correctly handle and fire handguns. Our instructor supports you from the first aiming exercise to restoring safety after firing.

Weapons: Pistols & Revolvers

Usually we train with the Steyr L9-A1 9×19 caliber pistol. It has clear control levers and is great to get a feel for handguns. Occasionally we also employ:

Get a more in-depth look into revolver shooting and the evolution of handguns in the Historical Firearms course.

Usually we train with one or two of the following rifles:

  • Semi-Automatic Steyr AUG A3 Z .223 / 5,56mm
  • Sniper Rifle Steyr SSG08 .308 / 7,62mm
  • Hunting Rifle .22

Especially the larger caliber .308 (7,62mm NATO) packs an enjoyable punch!

  • Safe handling
  • Ergonomical shooting while seated
  • Correct aiming with optics
  • Rifle shooting on the range up to 100 meters

Addition: Waffenführerschein

Austrian Gun Handling License

To acquire a handgun in Austria, you need to prove knowledge of the law, safe storage and practical shooting experience, as well as psychological accountability.

The first two points are covered by the so-called Waffenführerschein. You can get this by completing practical handgun shooting (this course) and the theoretical course (available online).

Psychological suitability is tested in a psychological exam conducted by licensed doctors.

Once you have both, then you can apply for a firearms license, called Waffenbesitzkarte, with the local police. After that, you are allowed to buy (usually up to two) handguns in Austria.

This module is ideal for beginners to get an idea of weapons and the governing laws. The course is also mandatory for handgun owners at regular intervals.

What you will learn

  • Weapons law
  • Technical terms of firearms and ammunition
  • Kinds of documents relating to firearms
  • Safe handling
  • Safe storage
  • Safe transportation

This course is available online.

  1. EMPFEHLENSWERT! Sehr durchdachtes Konzept, sehr kompetente und freundliche Betreuung. Vielen Dank für euer Engagement! Ich freu mich drauf, das Gelernte am Set umzusetzen.

  2. Es war ein sehr interessanter und kurzweiliger Vormittag. Pistole und Gewehr wurden in Funktion und Handhabung/Sicherheit ausführlich erklärt. Die Tipps der Trainer während und auch nach dem Schießen waren sehr wertvoll.
    Insgesamt eine sehr gelungene Veranstaltung und damit sehr zum Empfehlen

  3. Super Gelegenheit um in den Schießsport hinein zu schnuppern! Tolle Trainer, macht Spaß!

  4. Jedem zu empfehlen der den professionellen und sicheren Umgang mit Waffen erlernen will!

    Kompetente freundliche Trainer, die auf alle individuellen Fragen, Bedürfnisse, Ziele und Kenntnisse eingehen.
    Auch der rechtliche Teil der Ausbildung ist fundiert, umfassend und berücksichtigt flexibel die speziellen Anwendungsgebiete für die man die Ausbildung macht.

    Ein großer Bonus sind auch die verschiedenen Waffentypen mit denen man üben kann.

    Auch der starke Fokus auf Sicherheit und die richtige Handhabung, ohne jemand oder sich selbst zu gefährden, hat mich beeindruckt.

    es gibt sicher schnellere und günstigere Möglichkeiten an den Waffenführerschein zu kommen, aber kaum qualitativ bessere.
    Als angehender Waffenbesitzer mit Verantwortungsbewusstsein und Anspruch ist das der Kurs den man besuchen sollte.

    Danke für all die vielen Details und Antworten auf Fragen die eigentlich den Kursrahmen gesprengt haben.

  5. Es war ein großartiges Training. Ich habe es sehr genossen. Der Trainer war sehr nett, aufmerksam und freundlich.

  6. Alles in allem ein schönes Erlebnis!
    Der Trainer war kompetent, freundlich und bemüht.
    Danke dafür.

  7. A very good course of instruction with an excellent instructor…very thorough, professional, patient, and friendly.

    I would recommend this course to anyone interested in obtaining a Waffenbesitzkarte.

  8. Es war einfach gesagt etwas neues für mich. Kann es jedem weiter empfehlen weil es etwas für jung und alt ist und dieses Team war einfach nett und sehr freundlich.
    Danke an Markus und alle anderen die mitgewirkt haben.
    P.s ich werde das sicher öfters machen.

  9. Echt hammer tag und sehr gut gemacht auch sehr lustig ,vielen dank an markus und gernot super team und sehr spassig und lehrreich sehr gerne wieder mfg Rene

  10. Als jemand der bis dato nur filmtaugliche Faustfeuerewaffen in der Hand hatte, war es quasi Neuland für mich. Den Umgang mit einer scharfen Waffe, die Disziplin und die verbundene Verantwortung lässt einen realisieren das man mit Obacht vorgehen muss. Den Rückstoß zu erfahren um zu wissen wie es sich anfühlt, hilft in dem Verständnis beim spielen auf einem Filmset.
    Kann es nur jeden empfehlen.
    Ich hatte schießen mit Faustfeuerwaffe und Gewehr gebucht.

  11. hatte das komplette Programm für Einsteiger in Wien (exkl. Waffenführerschein) gebucht und bin als Neuling super zufrieden! Gerne wieder mal 🙂
