ScotShot LLC - NRA Phase-II (new) Basics of Pistol Shooting.
This is a National Rifle Association accredited and certificated course.
THIS COURSE HAS PRE-REQUISITES
To enter this course you must have completed the NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting Phase-I, which is an online course covering the theoretical aspects of shooting a handgun. You can access this course, which is on the NRA website, here.
WHAT THIS COURSE IS FOR
After completing the online NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting Phase-I, candidates for the new NRA Basic Pistol certification come to a NRA Certified Pistol Instructor and take the hands-on "Phase-II" part of the course. Here, you will learn how to handle and shoot actual firearms, applying the knowledge gained in Phase-I.
WHAT THIS COURSE CONTAINS
The course begins in the classroom with a brief review of Phase-I material, including dominant eye and the fundamentals of pistol shooting, then continues with safe gun handling exercises, loading and unloading, the bench-rest and two-handed standing positions. After a range safety briefing, we shoot live ammunition with the objective of achieving a pre-determined accuracy standard. Students may advance their achievement through a total of four competency levels, which is reflected in their final certification.
WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING
You must bring evidence of completion of the Phase-I module. This will be required. Otherwise, this is a beginner-level course, designed specifically for people who may never have handled a firearm before. It can be taken by adults and supervised older children (age 12 or over). The only other things you need to bring are a willingness to learn, a light lunch and desire to succeed. By arrangement, you may bring your own firearm to the class. If you do this then you should also bring 100 rounds of store-bought, factory-loaded ammunition (hand-loaded ammunition is expressly prohibited). However, we will provide everything that is required.
WHAT YOU WILL TAKE AWAY
We provide all training materials, firearms, ammunition, and classroom and range facilities. At the end of the course, we issue a Certificate of Completion to those who display the expected knowledge from Phase-I, a safety-orientated attitude to handgun use, and who achieve the minimum qualification standard. Most of all, you'll take away a great experience, a working knowledge of single-action double-action and semi-automatic handguns, and how to fire them safely at the range.
Thank you for choosing ScotShot for your firearms training - see you on the range!
