The NRA’s basic pistol class taught by a certified instructor

The Basics of Pistol Shooting Course is a nationally certified NRA course that teaches students to safely operate and shoot any rim fire or center fire pistol.  You will learn about stance, grip, pistol parts and ammunition, pistol selection and gun fit, gun care maintenance, disassembly and reassembly, proper gun storage and more.  There will be a shooting qualification at the end of the day.  This class will enable you to shoot safely in range environments and give you the confidence to continue building your skills.  This is an excellent class for beginners and those needing a brush up.  There is plenty to learn in this class even if you shoot often.  For the shooting qualification, students may shoot any caliber revolver or semi-automatic pistol between .22LR or higher. Rental guns available. Minimum 100 rounds of ammunition required. Bring more ammunition to reshoot the qualification, if needed. Course Cost: $175. The class will take approximately eight hours.  Price does not include range fees, which are approximately $15-$25 and payable directly to the range.  This class includes a comprehensive 200 page spiral-bound reference book.
