***We are currently offering the 8 Hour Handgun Safety / Concealed Carry Course which meets all the State of Colorado requirements to obtain a CHP Concealed Handgun Permit. Much like the NRA Basic Pistol it is for beginners but adds the benefit of covering information on Colorado Concealed Carry; it is an excellent substitute and is offered in lieu of the NRA Basic Pistol at this time.***

Learn common pistol and ammunition types
Learn fundamentals of pistol shooting

Learn how to maintain and clean your pistol

You will obtain a certificate upon completion of the NRA Basic Pistol Course which you will then use to apply for the Colorado Concealed Carry Permit at your County Sheriff’s Department.
Course Duration: Basic Pistol classes are 6-7 hours including lunch break and 15 min. drive time to the range. Classroom portion lasts about 3-4 hours, and shooting portion duration is about 1.5 hours; this could vary depending on class size and the training needs of individual students.
New for 2016 Blended Learning
The NRA has added an online portion to the course which should allow more hands on training with the instructor. This is brand new for 2016, we are still working on full implementation. This will require home online study for each student to complete prior to attending the hands on and shooting range portion.
Cost: Classes are $100 per person or bring a friend and pay only $75 each! (We require a $25 deposit per student to reserve each seat.)
Shooting Range: Silver Bullet 5901 W. 38th Ave. Wheat Ridge; $12 per student
