The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting course is designed to meet the basic handgun needs of students regardless of gun ownership status, previous experience or level. This is the perfect course for anyone who want a comprehensive understanding of pistols and their use.

What Students Will Need:

1. Wear long pants, closed toe shoes and no V-neck shirts, blouses etc.

2. If you bring your own handgun, it must be in good working order. I generally prefer semi-automatic hanguns. Additionally, you will be able to rent a semi-automatic pistol from the range.

3. If you rent a handgun from the range, you must also purchase ammunition from the range. 

4. Bring your own ear & eye protection if you have it. Otherwise, you can rent them at the range.

Price does not include the range fees, firearms rental, ammo and targets.

You must be 21 years of age or older and be legally in the US to take this class and handle firearms! (No exceptions!)


The conceal carry class was very thorough. I now feel a lot more confident with buying and owning a firearm to protect myself and my family!
