NRA – Basics of Pistol Shooting

The course goal is to teach the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning and operating a pistol safely. This is NOT a concealed carry class.  You should expect both classroom and range time where you will learn how to shoot revolvers and semi-automatic pistols.  You will learn NRA’s rules for safe gun handling; pistol parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; range rules; and cleaning the pistol.  We have a mix of both male and female NRA Certified Instructors.


This class is a prerequisite for taking NRA Instructor Pistol Shooting.

Cost: $95.00/person. 150 rounds. Space is limited.  Sign up below to register or contact APG at 970-424-5138 with questions.
Location: Classroom on Friday at Quality Inn and Range on Saturday at CSEC

Students should bring the following equipment:  A revolver and/or a semi-automatic pistol in good condition that has been cleaned and lubricated; if you have both.  If not, bring your primary firearm with 150 rounds of ammunition and we will provide the alternate gun and let you shoot it.  Guns should be unloaded, in a bag or a box.  Magazines: Bring at least 2 (more preferred). Eye protection and electronic hearing protection. If you do not have electronic hearing protection, APG has some available to rent for $10 per day.  Ear plugs or barrier ear muffs will not be acceptable for the class. A holster is NOT required for the class.
