Basic Pistol Course Course length: Approximately 8 hours
The NRA certified Basic Pistol Shooting Course is for the shooter with no or limited experience with handguns to learn basic fundamentals and safety. This course is also designed to help the shooter with some experience in firearms handling and safety who wants to improve his/her handgunning techniques in addition to developing solid skills in the fundamentals. This block of instruction starts with basic knowledge and safety then moves to the functionality of the pistol, ammunition knowledge and the fundamentals of shooting. After the classroom portion of the instruction, students will use the skills taught to achieve better marksmanship through practice of:
Presentation to the Target
Site Picture and Alignment
Our Basic Course also utilizes Air-Soft pellet pistols which can be used indoors. This reduces sound, recoil, and stress on the students, so that proper techniques can be mastered in a safe and comfortable environment. These air pellet guns function and feel like the real thing and therefore simulate the actual "action" felt with full-size pistols.
Finally, unlike many basic courses taught these days, our Basic NRA Pistol course offers students the opportunity to become familiar with their personal pistol if they have one and to actually fire an average of 50-100 rounds of ammunition (not included) per class. This will will earn the NRA Basic Handgun Qualification Patch in addition to the NRA Basic Pistol Certification.
Cost: $125 which includes indoor range fees, NRA Basic Pistol Certification, NRA Basic Handgun Qualification and Patch plus the opportunity on a space available basis to refresh any parts of the course for 6 months for free.
Paladin's NRA Basic Pistol Certification will qualify you to apply for a Concealed Weapon Permit (CWP) in the State of Colorado.
