Completion of this course awards you a Theatrical Handguns Booklet to record your training. This allows you to hire Blank Firing Handguns from the Rc-Annie Armoury in the future. Participants are sent a worksheet in advance of the course to assist with learning throughout the course and as a future reference. We also use images to illustrate the items that we are discussing (including a couple of quizzes) and show actual examples of the theatrical handguns that we are exploring.

"I just wanted to drop you a short email to say a huge thank you for arranging RC Annie to deliver us a digital lesson on Zoom last Friday.The session really impressed me! Ruth and Rachel delivered the content in an engaging way and really made use of Zoom’s features and they added in a short comfort break to allow us to read over notes and make a coffee. They covered a huge variety of topics too - from types of guns, their age, the laws, and safe storage/transport to paperwork and do’s/don’ts on stage.
