Prerequisites: These are mandatory requirements to become an NRA Pistol Instructor. IMPORTANT! There is a shooting prerequisite to pass this course. You must shoot 24/30 hits into a 9-inch circle at 15 yards. –Bring a pistol with which you can do this. You will have three attempts to meet this requirement. THINK: You probably will not do this with your S&W Shield .40. This is a pistol shooting course. A long-barreled .22 LR Pistol is a much better choice for this class. We have a few if you need to use one. 

  • NRA Basic Instructor Training on 12/12/23 at no charge for registered Instructor Candidates. Same Location. 8-3 PM.
