More and more women want to learn how to safely use hand guns for protection. Range Master, a local supplier of tactical gear will be offering a National Rifle Association, NRA FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation class for women on Sunday, November 18th, 2012 and again on Sunday December 23rd, 2012.
“Students will learn the NRA’s rules for safe gun handling that will include the pistol parts and operation. The correct type of ammunition, fundamentals of safe shooting practices and proper cleaning of the pistol.” LeeAnn Morgan, a spokesperson for Range Master said. “Range Master will also offer continued opportunities for, additional skill development and include both classroom and indoor shooting range instruction. Class participants may bring their own pistol, we will have ours for rent during the classes.”
The class will also include mandatory Basic Instructor Training (BIT). Pre-course tests will be required, and are administered at the start of the Sunday sessions. Students satisfactorily completing the trainings will be certified to teach both the Basic Pistol, and the First Steps Pistol Orientation courses.
Students who are successful in completing the entire course and become certified, will also receive a series of National Rifle Association instructor materials, and will be trained to conduct the NRA intensive lessons in safety and gun handling.
