The shotgun is widely considered to be the best home defense tool available today. While handguns receive the most attention, and shotguns are commonly known for hunting and sporting purposes, shotguns also provide excellent protection of you and your loved ones. The National Rifle Association’s NRA First Steps Shotgun and NRA Basic Shotgun courses are designed as an introduction to its safe handling and use.

We offer two NRA shotgun courses — NRA First Steps Shotgun and NRA Basic Shotgun. Both provide our students with an overview of the shotgun and developing skills for its operation.
