NRA Basic Pistol Course
“To teach the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning and using a pistol safely.”
A pistol, or handgun, is a firearm designed to be fired while being held in one hand. While such firearms are small and compact, they can be the hardest to learn.
Both the NRA Basic Pistol Course and Bite Me Firearms Pistol Familiarization Training are offered in private or group sessions. In both courses, students will get the NRA’s intensive lessons in safety, gun handling, the various types of pistols, the fundamentals of pistol marksmanship, various pistol firing positions, several practical exercises on the firing range, cleaning and storage.
