This course will prepare you for taking your Concealed Carry License class. If you have already taken the Concealed Carry License class, the material in the NRA Basic Pistol Course takes up where that class ended and teaches you how to operate, shoot, and be safe with your personal handgun. We also go over bullet placement correction and teach you new drills that will improve your skill and make shooting more fun.
