PERSONAL PROTECTION TRAINING

NRA Basic Personal Protection In The Home Course

This 8-hour course is designed to develop in the students the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to the safe and efficient use of a handgun for protection of self and family, and to provide information on the law-abiding citizen’s right to self-defense. Unlike the other basic courses, the course is designed around the use of the defensive pistol. Although the course can be completed in eight hours, the amount of information presented, and the probability of intensive question and answer sessions on the included topics, makes it likely that the course will take longer. Students will receive the NRA Guide to the Basics of Personal Protection in the Home handbook and intensive lessons on basics of defensive shooting, issues of self-defense, and other strategies for protecting the home and family. The course is intended for mature law-abiding adults, who have the mindset and seriousness necessary to properly perform the activities in the course. Self-defense is not a topic that lends itself to horseplay and distractions. Participants should be experienced shooters, with knowledge of the basic skills of safe gun handling. Students will be given feedback on their shooting exercises, and a certificate upon successful completion of the lessons. Not only are shooting standards fired during the practical exercises, but also a written exam will be given at the end of the course.

Prerequisites:

  • U.S. citizen or legal resident of 21 years of age or older.
  • Puerto Rico Firearms License with Target Shooting Permit.
  • NRA Basic Pistol Course Certificate, NRA FIRST Steps Pistol Course Certificate, NRA pistol competitive shooting qualification card, military DD 214 with pistol qualification, or passing the Pre-Course Assessment.
