Burch's Firearm Instruction

Instruction for beginner and intermediate shooters

NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting Course

Course Goal: To teach the basic knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for owning and using a pistol safely.

The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting course is a blended training course, which means a portion of the course (Phase I) is conducted in an online environment, that can be completed on your own time. The cost of Phase 1 is $60 payable directly to the NRA. Upon successfully completing the online exam, students will be required to register for the instructor-led training portion (Phase II), which is to be conducted at your local range with an NRA Certified Instructor. You must successfully complete Phase I and Phase II in order to receive your NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting course certificate.

You must complete all eleven lessons and a final exam with a 90% pass rate in order to get certified as having completed phase 1 of your training.  If you do not pass the exam the first time you will be provided with two additional opportunities to take the exam. Once you pass the exam you will be directed to generate a completion certificate that you can save as a file and/or print. You will use your Pin to register for your instructor led portion (or phase II) of the course on the nrainstructors.org website.

No prior firearms experience is necessary.
For youth and adults
Students may use their own pistols or revolvers, but they may wish to wait until AFTER attending this class to select a handgun that best meets their needs.
