This NRA FIRST STEPS PISTOL class is designed to provide a hands-on introduction to the safe handling and proper orientation to a specific pistol platform. This four-hour class is ideal for beginners, new purchasers and those contemplating a purchase of a pistol. This training provides beginning shooters with an introduction to the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to own and use a pistol safely. This class is ideal for all and especially for families, couples, women, youth (10 and older), and groups! 

This course includes classroom and live-fire range time learning to shoot a specific pistol action type. We are able to cover revolvers and semi-automatic pistols as well as different types of sighting systems. We focus on the needs of the students in the class. Students will learn the NRA rules for safe gun handling; the particular pistol model parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; cleaning the pistol; and continued opportunities for skill development. Students receive the Basics of Pistol Shooting handbook, NRA Gun Safety Rules brochure and NRA FIRST STEPS PISTOL Course completion certificate.

The National Rifle Association of America was originally formed in 1871 in an effort to promote and encourage marksmanship. The NRA has, since its inception, been the premier firearms education organization in the world. In civilian training, the NRA continues to be the leader in firearms education. Over 125,000 certified instructors now train about 1,000,000 gun owners a year. Courses are available in basic rifle, pistol, shotgun, muzzleloading firearms, personal protection, even ammunition reloading. Additionally, nearly 7,000 certified coaches are specially trained to work with young competitive shooters. Since the establishment of the lifesaving Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program in 1988, more than 28 million pre-kindergarten to fourth grade children have learned that if they see a firearm in an unsupervised situation, they should "STOP. DON'T TOUCH. RUN AWAY. TELL A GROWNUP." In recent years, Refuse To Be A Victim® seminars have helped more than 100,000 men and women develop their own personal safety plan using common sense strategies.
