NRA Basic Pistol Class

The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting course is a two-part class.  The first part of the NRA  Basic Pistol Class (Phase I) is online and you complete it in a time frame that works with your life.  The second part (Phase II) is the part we teach.  It is a hands-on experience conducted at American Shooting Centers in West Houston.

Phase I will go over gun safety and handling, proper operation of revolvers and semi-automatic pistols along with the selection and storage of those firearms.  You also learn about ammunition, the fundamentals of shooting and the proper inspection and storage of pistols. When you enroll in the online course, you create a personal identification number (PIN). When you successfully complete the course, printing your certificate activates that PIN. The activated PIN allows you to register for the instructor-led training portion of the course.

In Phase II, we give you practical instruction that validates all of the online material you have already seen.  We cover range protocols, proper handling, loading and unloading of firearms and proper application of shooting fundamentals.  There is a live fire portion and a final shooting qualification.

Phase II requires approximately 5 hours.  Our class held at American Shooting Centers and utilizes the instructor’s berm which lets us works separate from the public.  We ask student to arrive by 11:45 am and class should be completed around 5pm.  Cost per student is $95.

Our next class is scheduled for March 18, 2017 and registration is available here.
