NRA Personal Protection in the Home
“Personal Protection In the Home” is an intensive 2 day course for people who have a firearm in the home for defensive use, or who are thinking of buying one. Topics covered include:
- What gun is best for self-defense?
- Safe gun handling and storage.
- Guns and children.
- Laws relating to firearm purchase and ownership.
- Law of self-defense.
- Low Light and No Light Live Fire Shooting Scenarios
The NRA requires that the portions of this course pertaining to the law must be taught by a Lawyer or a Law Enforcement Officer.
We teach in a classroom environment all day on Saturday from 9am to 5pm (with a break for lunch around noon). Sunday morning, we move to the range for the firing portion which will last until around 1pm. You will need to attend the entire course for certification. DO NOT BRING LIVE AMMUNITION INTO THE CLASSROOM!
The course is open to adults 18 and over, who are not barred by law from possessing a firearm, such as by a criminal conviction or a restraining order. You may use your own pistol as long as it is an acceptable defensive caliber (9mm/38 Special or larger), loaner pistols may be available upon request in advance. Bring 100 rounds of ammunition for your pistol. If you need a loaner pistol, check with the lead instructor for ammunition cost. You will fire most, if not all of the ammunition in defensive shooting scenarios including low-light/no-light situations and shooting from behind cover and concealment.
To take “Personal Protection In the Home”, you must be able to properly and safely load and unload a semi-automatic pistol, and shoot it accurately enough to consistently hit a paper plate sized target from 25 feet away. If you are currently unable to do these things comfortably, or if you feel you need some refresher training, you may want take our “Handgun Safety” course.
The tuition for “Personal Protection In the Home” is $100.00 for members, or $125 for non-members. This includes the book and materials but does not include ammunition.
If you are from out of town and need information on the local motels and eateries, we would be happy to give advice.
