The Basics of Pistol Shooting - Instructor Led Training (ILT)** course format is an eight (8) hour traditional course of instruction based on the NRA's instructional model of total participant involvement (TPI). The student "learning by doing" is emphasized. The course format includes lecture, practical dry-fire exercises and live fire exercises during the session. All of the course content is taught under the direct supervision of a NRA Certified Instructor - Pistol.
The *Instructor Led Training (ILT) session is scheduled for eight (8) hour time blocks. The number of seats available for each session is one (1). This allows for a more personal and more effective training experience during the dry-fire and live-fire exercises. I will conduct courses with larger groups, please contact me.
*Courses are scheduled on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of the week.
Equipment: All safety equipment, ammunition, pistols, targets, etc. will be provided. If you own shooting glasses or ear protection, you can also bring them if you prefer to use your own.
Personal Firearms: If you have a personally owned firearm in which you wish to use during the course, please let me know the make, model and caliber. You will need to supply at least fifty (50) rounds of ammunition for the gun.
Clothing: Please wear closed toe shoes (no flip flops or sandals), a crew neck (T-shirt) or button-up shirt (no low-cut neckline). Long pants are recommended, but not required. You may also want to bring a baseball cap or a billed hat. During the live fire exercises, there will be hot brass being ejected from the pistols which may bounce onto you. This clothing will offer you the best protection.
