Bayprofs/NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting

Bayprofs/NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting is our most regular class, and we have teaching and improving our curriculum since the early 1980s.

The Bayprofs/NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting curriculum focuses on firearm safety, firearm safety and we even take some time to talk about firearm safety. We then move to Ammunition and how it functions, the parts and function of revolvers, parts and functioning of semi-auto handguns, and the to the fundamentals of pistol shooting. After each section students are given time to go hands on, and the class ends with a 2-3 hour range session.

Class outline:

  • Firearm Safety
  • Ammunition types,  function and storage
  • Revolver types and function
  • Semi-auto types and function
  • Fundamentals of Pistol shooting
  • Range time
  • Cleaning and maintenance
  • Selecting a pistol

We gradually increase students comfort with firearms by starting small, but on the range you will have the opportunity to shoot a variety of popular calibers.
