The National Rifle Association is excited to announce the NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting Course is now available online. Firearms enthusiasts may learn pistol safety, handling and shooting techniques in their own homes, at their own convenience. Moving to an online course format allows basics of pistol shooting and firearm safety to reach even more households across the country.
Designed and developed by experts to accommodate busy schedules, the web-based course takes a blended learning approach to firearms training with both online and physical components. Students have 90 days to work through 11 online lessons at their own pace before registering for an NRA Certified Instructor-led phase at a local range to demonstrate their level of understanding and retention of course material.
"America has more first time gun owners than ever and the NRA remains dedicated to being the number one provider of firearm training," said Executive Director of NRA General Operations, Kyle Weaver. "Thanks to our online courses and network of more than 125,000 NRA Certified Instructors, it has never been easier to learn basic firearm skills."
