NRA Basic Pistol Class (sponsored by BVRPC)
Maybe you've owned and used a pistol for years but never got any instruction on the basic safety principles and shooting fundamentals you'd need to build a basis of becoming a good shooter.
If this describes you then please consider attending our NRA Basic Pistol Class, sponsored by B.V.R.P.C.
In this approximate 8 hour format of instruction, topics covered will include safe gun handling, pistol operation, shooting fundamentals, ammunition basics, gun cleaning and live fire shooting sessions with one-on-one student/instructor training, and many more relevant topics.
You DO NOT need to own a gun to attend this class. All pistols, ammunition and safety gear are provided for every student. However, you may bring your own firearm if you wish. Most calibers of ammunition will be on hand for you to use, but it's advisable to bring about 50 rounds of your own LEAD ammo just in case.
You will be instructed in the appropriate use of both revolvers and semi-automatics.
As the name implies, this is a BASIC PISTOL course and is focused on getting you started in proper and responsible gun ownership.
It is a perfect starting point if eventually you wish to explore training in such topics as home protection, personal protection, tactical gun training or an education in gun laws.
It is our current policy that all students must be at least 18 years of age.
