Q: "Can you teach my responsible teen to shoot?"
A: Although it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to possess a firearm outside of their parents' or legal guardian's direct control, or that of a certified firearms instructor, it is perfectly acceptable, and encouraged, to teach them to shoot and be confident in the operation of a firearm. Knowledge is power, and today, more than ever, it is important for teens to be educated and prepared for whatever may lie ahead in their lives.
A: The course of fire for NRA Basic Pistol is a minimum of 50 rounds. For NRA Personal Protection Inside the Home, minimum of 100 rounds. For NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home, approximately 300 rounds.
Q: "How much ammunition do I need to bring?"
A: Yes. The NRA Basic Pistol Certification Course meets the requirement in the state of Colorado to obtain your Colorado CHP (Concealed Handgun Permit). I also teach a more advanced Concealed Carry class for more experienced shooters, implementing a more challenging course of fire. The NRA Basics of Personal Protection Outside the Home is the course the NRA considers its "concealed carry class", taking you over more advance tactical information as well as the moral, legal and ethical ramifications of carrying and using a firearm in self-defense.
Q: "Do you teach concealed carry classes?"
A: The simple answer is 'no'. You do not need your own firearm to take NRA Basic Pistol. If you have one, that's great. But I allow my students to use my guns, starting new shooters out on a .22 LR and moving up from there. You do, however, need to own your own gun in a 9mm caliber or higher for the live fire exercises in NRA Basics of Personal Protection Inside the Home, NRA Basics of Personal Protection Outside the Home and Concealed Carry classes.
