The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting course is a blended training course, which means a portion of the course (Phase 1) is conducted in an eLearning environment (online) that can be completed on your own time.
The eLearning portion teaches gun safety rules, types of pistols, proper operation of revolvers and semi-automatic pistols, ammunition knowledge and selection, selecting and storing a pistol, the fundamentals of pistol shooting, clearing stoppages, zeroing, pistol shooting errors, and pistol inspection and maintenance.
Phase 1 is REQUIRED to be completed prior to registering for Phase 2. (Registration and payment for Phase 1 is through the NRA. The instructor is not involved in Phase 1 instruction or payment.) Once you pass the final online exam for Phase 1, you must complete the instructor led training portion (Phase 2) to complete the course.
During the Phase 2 portion, an NRA certified instructor will validate comprehension and application of gun safety rules, range protocol, proper handling, loading and unloading procedures, application of pistol shooting fundamentals, stable shooting positions, live fire, and a final shooting qualification.
Phase 2 is $100 ($90 for members)
