NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting

Bayprofs/NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting is our most regular class, and we have teaching and improving our curriculum since the early 1980s.

The Bayprofs/NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting curriculum focuses on firearm safety, firearm safety and we even take some time to talk about firearm safety. We then move to Ammunition and how it functions, the parts and function of revolvers, parts and functioning of semi-auto handguns, a primer on California firearms law, and the to the fundamentals of pistol shooting. After each section students are given time to go hands on, and the class ends with a 2-3 hour range session.

Class outline:

  • Firearm Safety
  • Ammunition types, function and storage
  • Revolver types and function
  • Semi-auto types and function
  • California firearms law
  • Fundamentals of Pistol shooting
  • Range time
  • Cleaning and maintenance
  • Selecting a pistol

We gradually increase students comfort with firearms by starting small, but on the range you will have the opportunity to shoot a variety of popular calibers.

The class runs from 10:00AM to approximately 8:00PM. There is a full one hour lunch period and several breaks to help make the class time more enjoyable.

*Bayprofs instructors are also certified to issue the California Firearm Safety Certificates. If you are interested in taking the FSC, we strongly recommend reading the material provided here. The FSC permit has an additional cost set by the State of California and tests will be taken at the end of the class.
