The NRA Basic Pistol is a blended learning course. This consists of an online web based training program, and then an instructor guided classroom learning session. The course is designed and intended for those with little to no firearms experience. Please note this course is already included in our Advanced CCL course. The classroom learning portion of this course will be held at our Alsip, IL location.

If you are a brand new shooter we highly recommend taking this course prior to any other training. This is an NRA approved course. In our opinion, the NRA has done an excellent job at creating the most thorough and succinct curriculum for new firearms owners. If you have recently purchased your first handgun or are considering a new handgun for defensive purposes the NRA Basic Pistol course is the best place to start.

Once you've purchased this course you will be sent a code for the NRA Online training. After your online training is complete you will meet with one of our NRA Certified instructors to complete the Instructor lead portion of this training. You are encouraged to bring your own firearm and holster but NO LIVE AMMUNITION. This course does not require live ammunition but will instead be conducted on a simulation range. The Instructor lead portion of this consists of a single 5 hour day entirely in the classroom.
