NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course – Instructor Led
April 10 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting is intended for all individuals regardless of previous shooting experience or NRA-affiliation
Course topics include: gun safety rules, proper operation of revolvers and semi-automatic pistols, ammunition knowledge and selection, pistol selection and storage, shooting fundamentals, pistol inspection and maintenance, marksmanship, and shooting range safety. Additionally, students will complete live fire training and a nationally standardized shooting qualification while on the range with an NRA Certified Instructor. Students will receive the NRA Guide: Basics of Pistol Shooting handbook, take a Basics of Pistol Shooting Student Examination and receive a course completion certificate bearing the signature of the NRA Secretary and your NRA Certified Instructor.
This is a good follow on for women who have participated in the Women on Target. By the end of the day each student will know the differences between revolvers and semi-automatic pistols; be able to explain single action versus double action; understand how to load and unload a revolver and a semi-automatic pistol; understand how a semi-automatic pistol operates; understand how to identify and correct revolver and pistol malfunctions; understand how to grip correctly a revolver and a semi-automatic pistol; understand the importance of aiming and trigger control to shoot accurately. It is not necessary to own a pistol to take this class. I supply firearms and ammunition to those who have not yet purchased a sidearm.
