NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting

Time: This is an 8 hour course. Approximately 6 hours will be spent in the classroom and 2 hours at the range.  

Cost: The cost for this course is $125. 

Dress: Comfortably for an indoor class. Bring what you need depending on the weather to fire at the outdoor range. For the firing portion you should wear long pants, shoes that cover all, a baseball hat or other hat that will still allow you to wear hearing protection, and a long sleeve shirt. This is designed to protect you from any hot brass from you or our neighbor while firing. You will also need eye protection. If you wear prescription glasses, make sure they are rated to provide protection.  

Bring: Your firearm and 50 rounds of ammunition for your weapon. If you have not yet made a decision on a firearm, we are able to offer a models for you to try. If you have trouble finding ammunition, we can also provide that at our current cost. Suggest you purchase ammunition that is full / total metal jacket (FMJ or TMJ) as it is much cheaper than rounds that are consider for self defense such as hollow points. We will cover what should be used for your choice of ammunition for defensive purposes during the class.
