NJ Guard Training Academy Inc. offers a NRA Basic Pistol Safety Course thru the Nation Rifle Association, instructed by certified NRA instructors whose main goal is to instruct you, the student, on the proper fundamental rules for safe gun handling.

The course goal is to teach our students the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning and operating a pistol safely.

Orientation Phase:

The NRA Basic Pistol Safety Course is a blended training class, which means a portion of the training is conducted in an e-learning environment that can be completed on your own time. Our NRA Instructors will review the course curriculum and then register you for the online NRA Basic Pistol Safety class.

Upon completion of the online class, the student will be able to enroll in the instructor-led training portion of the course.

Classroom Phase:

In a classroom setting, along with a NRA certified Instructor present, you will demonstrate comprehension and application of:

  • Pistol Shooting Fundamentals
  • Proper Handling
  • Loading and Unloading Procedures
  • Stable Shooting Positions
  • Live Fire Shooting Rules and Regulations
  • Requirements in Shooting a Final Qualification

Upon successful completion of the classroom portion, the final phase of the training will be the Range Qualification.

Range Qualification Phase:

Our NRA certified instructors will schedule you to attend this one day training exercise, at which time you will work side by side with your instructor in performing all of the fundamentals you have learned, and then apply them at the Range.

When the entire course is completed, training doesn’t have to end. Work with your NRA certified instructor on opportunities to return to the range to continue building confidence and better marksmanship skills.
