NRA Basic Pistol Shooting covers all aspects of handgun safety, gun handling skills, marksmanship, storage and maintenance.  The course is intended for the new handgun owner and for anyone needing a refresher on the fundamentals of pistol shooting.  

This course is highly recommended for everyone contemplating the purchase of their first handgun.

Our course features enhanced range exercises conducted by a team of very experienced NRA Certified Instructors.  We understand the learning process.  Students receive personalized one-on-one range instruction.

NRA Basic Pistol is required for advanced training, including Personal Protection classes and Action Pistol classes.


NRA Personal Protection in the Home introduces the student to many issues involved with the safe and efficient use of a firearm for protection of self and family.   The course emphasizes the knowledge, skills, and attitude which are critical when confronted with imminent deadly violence.  It provides essential information on the law-abiding citizen's right to self-defense.

This is an intermediate-skill course.  We are not going to teach you how to shoot, how to load, unload, or clean your gun.  We expect you to know how hit your target, how to adjust the sights, and how to deal with stoppages.  We expect you to know, understand, and follow the safety rules at all times.

The advance shooting skills you will learn in this course are invaluable for developing your confidence to deal with the stress of a defensive situation.  Legal and psychological aspects of the right to self defense will be addressed.  

Students mu
st have an NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course Certificate, or other proof of proficiency, or be able to pass a Pre-Course Qualification.  Students must be adults 21 years of age or older and legally able to purchase, possess, and transport firearms in Pennsylvania.

You'll have plenty of opportunities to shoot; you'll need at least 250 rounds to complete the course.

Our course features enhanced range exercises conducted by a team of very experienced NRA Certified Instructors.  We understand the learning process.  Students receive personalized one-on-one range instruction.

 

 

 

 

All new handgun owners and anyone interested in purchasing their first handgun is strongly encouraged to seek safety training.  All Center for Firearm Safety and Training courses are conducted by experienced NRA Certified Instructors.

The Center for Firearm Safety and Training is a 4-way partnership among instructors, students, sponsoring organizations (clubs, groups, or served agencies for which instruction is being provided), and the NRA.  It is organized as an academic unit, allowing the instructors to operate (somewhat) independently of the sponsoring agency.
