The NRA Basic Pistol Course will familiarize you with the correct operation and maintenance of semi-automatic pistols and revolvers. The course is perfect for the new handgun owner and serves as an introductory skills course for other more advanced defensive or competitive handgun courses. The ultimate goal of the Basic Pistol course is to teach the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for owning and using a pistol safely.
Any person of good character who is not legally disqualified from possessing a handgun in the U.S. can attend this class. All persons of less than 18 years of age may only take this course with their parent or with an adult guardian.
