The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting course is the best way for you to learn the basics of pistol shooting from one of the top firearms training organizations! The course is the first step for you to obtain the proper certification for your concealed carry permit in some states. Be sure to contact your county, city or state to find out whether this course fulfills the requirement.
This easy-to-understand online training program allows you to go at your own pace and learn from the comfort of your own home. Simply go through the online course material, successfully complete the online exam, and you’ll receive a certificate of completion instantly for the online course, then schedule a range qualification session and bring your certificate to verify completion of the online course. Upon demonstration of manipulating jams and other problems that can occur on the range, and successfully completing the range qualification you will receive your NRA Completion Certificate.
The NRA Basic Pistol Course is a basic handgun safety and familiarization course. The class consists of 8 hours of on-line classroom and 3 hours of range qualification and firearm malfunction drills. The cost includes 50 rounds of qualification ammunition for your firearm, and a firearm rental, (if you do not own a pistol), and the range fee. Additional ammunition is available at the range for a reasonable fee, or you may bring additional ammo for your personal firearm. If you are new to shooting, this class is for you. Davis Shooting utilizes Total Participation Involvement (TPI) to engage all the ways people learn new skills. We bring actual firearms for our students to manipulate, which facilitates memory retention. We provide individual attention to our students to further ensure they learn and retain the material. Finally, we take the time to work with you at the range prior to taking the qualification test, because we understand that everyone who comes to us for training expects to be shooting more accurately.
In short we want to ensure you have a positive experience no matter what your skill level. We are not the typical handgun instructor’s that are just trying to run as many students as they can through the range as fast as they can just to turn maximum revenue with minimal effort. Our students matter.
