The NRA First Steps Pistol course introduces students to a particular type of handgun (revolver or autoloader). Students will learn how a handgun works: how to field-strip, clean, and maintain their firearm. They will have the opportunity to participate in one hour of live-fire training under the supervision of an experienced instructor. Students are welcome to bring their personal firearms to the class UNLOADED, per NRA safety policy. The course costs $95, which includes all classroom materials and use of an instructor provided firearm. The course fee does not include student range time and ammunition. This course is taught in Fairfax, Virginia. Contact us if you are interested in private, in-home instruction for $140.
This course satisfies the Virginia firearms safety training requirement for a concealed handgun permit and the Washington D.C. firearms training requirement for handgun ownership.
