Basic Pistol Class – Women Only Range Staff
September 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
When & Where
Our upcoming class is on Sunday, September 18th from 8:00am (starting promptly at 8:30am) to 5:00pm. It will be held at Londonderry Fish & Game at 5 Lund Street in Litchfield.
The NRA Basic Pistol Course is intended for all individuals regardless of previous shooting experience or NRA affiliation. This course is a minimum of 8 hours and includes classroom instruction and range time learning to shoot semi-automatic pistols. This is an instructor-led program and is not a blended training course.
Students learn NRA’s rules for safe gun handling; pistol parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; range rules; shooting from a standing position; pistol selection and storage; and continued opportunities for skill development. Students will also complete live-fire training on the range. A NRA Certificate will be issued upon satisfactory completion of this course.
Day of Class
Participants should bring their own eye and ear protection (we have some available as well). Also bring beverages, lunch and any snacks. Participants should dress accordingly dependent upon the weather. Please wear appropriate attire — closed-toe shoes and full-coverage shirts as hot brass can be very uncomfortable and present a safety hazard when it hits bare skin. A brimmed hat such as a baseball hat is recommended, but not required.
Wearing layers is also helpful.
The Women’s Defense League will supply the firearms, ammunition, targets, and student packets.
All participants must prepay to reserve their seat. The fee for non-members is $95 and for League members it is $70. Go to this link below to pay prior to class day. Space is limited to 24 participants and spots will only be held for people who pre-pay. NOTE: These classes fill up extremely fast, spots are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis!!
All participants are also expected to complete a liability waiver prior to participation which will be made available at the event.
