NRA Basic Pistol Basic Pistol Course by GWG (Shannon & Wes Mauldin)

August 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

NRA Basic Pistol Basic Pistol Course

Description: 8 hrs Classroom & Range time- This course teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning, storing, and operating a pistol safely. It includes classroom and range time, learning the basic operations of revolvers and semi-automatic pistols. Students will complete a live fire training exercise. This class CAN be used to apply for a Fl CCW permit.
Best For : This class is best for new gun owners who desire a broad scale training on the various types of pistols,basic shooting skills, gun owners who have their CCP/CCW but have no experience and/or got the “fast class” to qualify for their CCP/CCW and now don’t know how to shoot and want to feel confident in their knowledge of the firearms they are carrying and shooters thinking about the NRA instructor training program or other “accredited” programs (advancement) that will require “proof” of a NRA course.*

Benefits:Foundation for ALL NRA Pistol Shooting courses, This course meets and EXCEEDS Florida CWP Requirements. This class teaches the foundation on which all shooting disciplines should be built. This is NOT the 2 hour class that pushes students through that a lot of instructors give where their students end up with a CCP and still don’t know how to safely and properly handle the firearm they are carrying. At GWG Tactical we believe in spending the extra time in doing it right the first time, for the student’s safety, for everyone’s safety.

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
