NRA FIRST Steps Courses: $60.00
(Request Info) (Register for a class)
FIRST stands for “Firearm Instruction, Responsibility, and Safety Training”, a program the NRA developed to meet the need for a firearms orientation program for new gun purchasers. The FIRST Steps program consists of basic courses abbreviated to the most fundamental shooting skills, and the specifics of a particular model of firearm. Because of its narrow focus, First steps courses can be completed in as few as three hours. *First Steps Class for only 1 student is $100.00.
- Rifle (3-4 hours): Students will get the NRA's The Basics of Rifle Shooting handbook and quick practical lessons on the safe use, cleaning, and storage of their rifle. The practical exercise only covers a single firing position.
- Shotgun (3-4 hours): Students will get the NRA's The Basics of Shotgun Shooting handbook and quick practical lessons on the safe use, cleaning, and storage of their shotgun. The practical exercise covers a single position with thrown clay targets.

Basic shooting courses provide intensive lessons in safety, gun handling, the various types of each firearm, the fundamentals of marksmanship, various firing positions, several practical exercises on the firing range, cleaning, storage, and a summary of shooting sports and activities. *Basic Rifle or Shotgun Shooting Class for 1 only student is $150.00.
- Pistol (4-8 hours): A pistol or handgun, is a firearm designed to be fired while being held in one hand. While such firearms are small and compact, they can be the hardest to learn.
- Rifle (14-16 hours): A rifle is a long gun designed to be fired with two hands. It has a rifled bore (thus the name “rifle”) and is designed to shoot a specific size of ammunition. Rifles are often used in game hunting and in long range marksmanship competitions.
- Shotgun (10-12 hours): A shotgun is a long gun designed to be fired with two hands. It has a smooth bore (the inside of the barrel) and is designed to shoot a variety of ammunition, ranging from a solid bullet, called a slug, to multiple projectiles, called shot. Shotguns are often used in bird hunting, and in the sports of trap and skeet.
- Muzzleloading (12 hours): This course teaches the basic knowledge, skills and attitude essential to the safe and efficient use of muzzleloading guns. This course can focus on one specific discipline or a combination of muzzleloading pistols, rifles and shotguns.
NRA Personal Protection in the Home: $100.00
(Request Info) (Register for a class) (Limited time promotion)
Americans own firearms for a variety of reasons, but personal protection and home defense is among the most common reasons for owning a handgun. Much like an Active Shooter course, the Basics of Personal Protection in the Home course is designed to train firearm owners how to protect themselves and families in the event of home invasion. This course focuses on the principles of how to RUN, HIDE from or FIGHT to survive when presented with an active shooter situation and includes tactical shooting exercises. Students also learn about their right to self-defense as a law-abiding citizen.
“People who take this course realize the importance of protecting themselves and their families,” said John Howard of the NRA's Training division. “The responsibility of protecting your home falls upon you. The homeowner is the first responder.”
During the eight-hour course students will learn how to respond to a violent confrontation by escaping if possible, strategically hiding from intruders as well as defensively shooting skills for their personal safety. Not sure which gun is right for you and your home? Learn how to choose the best firearm for self-defense, along with continued opportunities to expand your skills.
Although Personal Protection in the Home is considered a basic NRA course, it’s not for beginners and teaches practical personal safety principles for use in the home and beyond. *The cost for this course is $100 per participant, or $150 for two from the same household. Additional discounted rates are available for larger groups.
*NRA certification is available for all NRA courses
