What to bring to class
Jericho Defense Ammunition Requirement Update
Jericho Defense is aware that reduced availability of ammunition and higher prices is making it hard for people to plan for any 2013 training and competition. We are well aware of it, because it also affects us. So to help ease the pain and cost, we are reducing the round counts in all of our Fundamental and Advanced Carbine and Pistol classes to 300 rounds. We are also allowing the use of 22LR for much of the class. We have certain courses of fire in each class that will require 100 rounds of standard rifle or pistol ammunition; however the rest of the class can be done with 22LR. That’s if you have a .22LR set up. We understand the training and learning limitations that the .22LR platform places on our Carbine and Pistol classes, however we have always been about teaching “fighting” with a firearm. So no matter what, learning will occur and we will rock on.
We have dialed our lesson plans, so students get the highest training and learning value without wasting any excess ammunition. After ammunition availability and prices return back to normal, we will retool our class ammunition requirements to our standard operating procedures. If any student has excess ammo to burn, they are always welcome to bring it to class. Thanks for your understanding and hope to see you at the range.
1. A serviceable semi-automatic pistol
2. 300 rounds of Ammunition

Who may take this class?
- Any United States citizen who is legally eligible to possess a pistol. We require that all students under the age of 18 are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Each Student will be required to sign a statement of legal eligibility to participate in this course of instruction. Stating you are a United States citizen, not under a court order prohibiting you from owning, using, possessing or handling firearms; or are not disqualified or prohibited under any local, state or federal law from owning, using, possessing or handling firearms; or any knowledge, skills, techniques, responses, abilities or other information learned as a result of any training received will be used in an illegal manner.
Do I need to own a pistol to take this class?
- Yes. You need to bring your own pistol. Cowboy style single action pistols or target type pistols are not allowed. The pistol you bring should be of the same type you would carry concealed for self-protection or one you would use in a tactical environment. When you bring your pistol to the class, make sure it is unloaded and in a case. Make sure to comply with any applicable laws governing the transportation and storage of firearms. If there is any question about the condition your pistol is in, we ask that you have a qualified gunsmith inspect your pistol to be confident it’s safe to fire. Please bring the correct ammo for your pistol and that complies with the local range regulations.
How much pistol ammunition should I bring?
- We have a requirement of 600 rounds of ammunition for this course of instruction.
Do I need to bring eye and ear protection to this class?
What will we do about lunch?
- Depending on the range location, you may have to bring your own food, local eateries may be close by and used or lunch may be provided by the range…dependent on the range management. We suggest that you check the food arrangements before coming to class and bring enough water/drinks and personal snacks for the day.
