FIREARM INSTRUCTION IN COLLEGE STATION

NRA BASIC Pistol Shooting Course:

Short Description:
The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting is intended for all individuals regardless of previous shooting experience or NRA-affiliation and is available for delivery in two ways. One option is the traditional, instructor-led course where you will receive direct instruction from an NRA-certified instructor from beginning to end (This option is required if your desired end-goal is to be an NRA Pistol Instructor). The other option has two components: a self-study or “eLearning module” which is completed online in your own timeframe and a hands-on practical portion conducted in a classroom and shooting range with an Instructor.

More Details:
Instructor Led Only Training: The Instructor Led Only takes place in a traditional classroom and range environment. This course may be completed in a single day format or over several days with smaller blocks of instruction.
Blended Training: The Blended training format provides students the flexibility to complete a significant portion of the course in an eLearning environment, prior to arriving for the classroom and range session with an NRA Certified Instructor. Course topics include: gun safety rules, proper operation of revolvers and semi-automatic pistols, ammunition knowledge and selection, pistol selection and storage, shooting fundamentals, pistol inspection and maintenance, marksmanship, and shooting range safety. Additionally, students will complete live fire training and a nationally standardized shooting qualification while on the range with an NRA Certified Instructor. Students will receive the NRA Guide: Basics of Pistol Shooting handbook, take a Basics of Pistol Shooting Student Examination and receive a course completion certificate bearing the signature of the NRA Secretary and your NRA Certified Instructor.

This module is meant to be conducted immediately following the NRA Basic Pistol Course (Phase I and II), while the material is still fresh in the student’s mind. However it is also a good follow up to Handgun 101.

This module focuses on technique and the development of the defensive mindset and is the NRA’s response for people seeking additional training and skills to accompany their concealed firearm permits. Therefore, most modules involve working from your holster.
Students should expect to shoot approximately 100 – 200 rounds of ammunition. The defensive pistol modules are objective based. Students do not earn a certificate for this course till they are able to successfully complete the final shooting qualification exercise. Do not be discouraged if you do not have all the gear needed for this class. We are happy to provide you equipment on a limited basis and help you select and train with the best equipment suited for your person and lifestyle.
