Primarily for beginner handgun students or those who need a refresher, our NRA Basic Pistol Course is a great introduction to the safe and fun operation of handguns. Following the National Rifle Association’s course curriculum, our instructors work with each person to ensure all who complete the course have a solid understanding of handgun fundamentals.

In This Course, Students Learn:

  • Safety rules
  • Parts of a handgun (revolver and semi-automatic)
  • Types of Ammunition
  • Sight alignment, sight picture
  • Stance, grip, posture, shooting positions
  • Eye dominance
  • Trigger control

Students have the opportunity for live-firing a handgun at the completion of the course. (Calibers and handgun types vary depending on instructor and location.) The NRA Basic Pistol Course is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about handguns and get hands-on experience at the same time.
