NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting (Lakeland, TN)
January 18 @ 6:00 pm - January 19 @ 12:00 pm$85.00
The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting course is intended for all individuals, regardless of previous shooting experience or NRA-affiliation. This is the traditional, instructor-led course where students will receive direct instruction from an NRA-certified instructor from beginning to end.
This 8-hour class will be taught in two parts, from 6pm to 10pm on Friday evening (Jan. 18th) and 8am to 12 noon on Saturday (Jan. 19th). Lively, interactive classroom instruction will take place in a comfortable, modern, temperature-controlled meeting space; and the live-fire portion will be conducted on a convenient outdoor range not far away. All students will need a reliable pistol and approximately 100 rounds of ammunition. If you don’t have a pistol, you can borrow one of ours (please contact us in advance to make arrangements). Ammo can also be purchased from CSA with advance notice. Some of the topics in the course include:
- gun safety rules
- proper operation of revolvers and semi-automatic pistols
- ammunition knowledge and selection
- selecting and storing a pistol
- fundamentals of shooting (marksmanship)
- pistol inspection and maintenance
Small classes ensure low student-to-instructor ratios for lots of individualized attention. The course concludes with a written test and a shooting qualification drill. Our patient instructors will be there to assist students every step of the way in a comfortable, non-intimidating environment. Interested in becoming a pistol instructor?
