NRA Basic Pistol Shooting (Phase II -blended learning)
NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course introduces students to the knowledge,
skills, and attitudes necessary for owning and using a pistol
safely. Through this course, the students will learn about pistol parts
and operation, ammunition, gun safety, pistol shooting fundamentals,
and pistol shooting activities. The Basic Pistol Course will also help
prepare the student for participation in other NRA courses. This class meets the statutory requirements for the Wyoming Concealed Carry Permit.
NRA Basic Pistol Course is perfect for beginners who have little to no
experience with pistols or those who have not handled a pistol in a
while who would like a refresher in the basics. The class is open to
any person over the age of twelve.
Changes: I used to teach the full 8 hours of this class followed by
time on the range, but last year the NRA changed the delivery of this
class to a “blended learning” curriculum. This means “Phase I” of the
course is taught interactively via the internet and “Phase II” of the
course is taught locally on the range. The changes were made to ensure
more consistent instruction, give more in depth training, prove students
understand what they have learned, better documents learning, and
with anything, it has its benefits and its drawbacks: it does ensure
better retention through interactive quizzes, some things can be
explained better through pictures and animations, the internet based
training is completed at the student’s individual pace, it does ensure
consistency, provides a path of learned documentation, and improves
retention through reinforcement. On the down side increases the cost of
the class ($60 for the online phase and $60 for the Instructor led
phase), though the class has almost doubled in length.
was a great class before, (one of my favorites) which has become an
even better class to get people started with pistol shooting.

course is conducted in two phases. Phase I is online through the NRA
Learning Management System (LMS). Once the students complete the online
phase, they can attend Phase II, the instructor-led training portion of
the course. During Phase II, NRA Certified Instructors validate
comprehension and application of gun safety rules, range protocol,
proper handling, loading and unloading procedures, application of pistol
shooting fundamentals, stable shooting positions, live fire, and
students shoot a final qualification.
Phase I (online) of the class must be completed before July 18th After successful completion of the online phase students can register for Phase II at www.NRAInstructors.org .
