This course retails for $110.
Short Description : Teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning and operating a pistol safely.
More Details: This course is at least 8-hours long (as per lesson plan) and includes classroom and range time learning to shoot revolvers and semi-automatic pistols. You'll learn:
• rules for safe gun handling;
• pistol parts and operation;
• shooting fundamentals;
• range rules;
• shooting from the two handed standing positions and, if needed, the bench rest position;
• cleaning the pistol;
• and continued opportunities for skill development.
You will receive
• the NRA Guide to the Basics of Pistol Shooting handbook,
• NRA Gun Safety Rules brochure,
• Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification booklet.
There will be an exam at then end of the course as well as proficiency qualification at the range. Once completed you will receive an NRA completion certificate. This certificate will provide pre-requisite proof of pistol proficiency if you intend to seek additional training such as Personal Defense Inside the Home and Personal Defense Outside the Home as well as CCW Course should you be granted a permit. Lucky you if you do! You may also get inspired to compete. There are a lot of you out there that should seriously consider competition shooting.
Classroom lessons will be conducted at my house. We will then break for lunch and meet at Rainbow Shooting Range. At the range we'll be shooting both .22LR semi-auto pistol and revolver, .38 special and .357 magnum revolver, two different 9mm semi-auto pistols, and .40 cal semi-auto pistol. We'll focus on the fundamentals of marksmanship with the .22LR. Once we determine that your fundamentals are sound, we'll introduce recoil with the larger caliber pistols! After shooting we will return back to my place for final lessons and the exam.
