NRA Basic Pistol Certification 10-Hour Course $180.00
The NRA Basic Pistol Certification is designed to introduce the student to the working parts and operation of their firearm and safe operation of firearm and ammunition. It includes a detailed orientation in the cleaning, storing, and safe and legal transportation of your firearm. This course will also offer you knowledge of shooting fundamentals and positioning. You will receive comprehensive and detailed training before you purchase your firearm. For those with little ones in the household, we will provide safety information on handgun ownership as taught by the National Rifle Association.

This course gives the participants an opportunity to take a 4-hour introductory course, which includes the actual range time.

Whether you are interested in recreational shooting, competition, hunting, gun collecting, historical reenactment, home safety, or personal protection, the basics are where to start! NRA Basic Firearm Training Courses teach you the safety principles and help you develop the knowledge, skills, and attitude needed to pursue your shooting interests successfully.

We offer the most personalized comprehensive firearms instruction in Northern California.
FIRST (Firearm Instruction, Responsibility, and Safety Training) Step is the latest addition to the NRA’s training programs for new shooters. It provides a hands-on orientation to one specific rifle, pistol, or shotgun model in as little as three hours, including a one-hour shooting session on a range.

The FIRST Step Pistol Program is designed to provide training with one particular firearm model, preferably for the participants (but not required). However, individuals who do not yet own a firearm may attend a FIRST Step orientation using a firearm provided by the trainer. Please keep in mind that alternate firearms economically fit you differently. You are on this website because you want to learn to shoot! After an in-depth orientation period, we will have you on the range in a live fire situation, hitting the bull’s eye with great excitement and a rewarding experience.
