The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting is intended for all individuals regardless of previous shooting experience or NRA-affiliation and is available for delivery in two ways. One option is the traditional, instructor-led course where you will receive direct instruction from an NRA-certified instructor from beginning to end. The other option has two components: a self-study or “eLearning module” which is completed online in your own time frame and a hands-on practical portion conducted in a classroom and shooting range with an Instructor. The online coupled with range time is referred to as the blended course. The classic instructor training course is a full day and includes firearm safety, function, basic fundamentals of shooting and a live fire component. A NRA basic pistol certification will be issued after successful completion of the course, including a 90% score on the written test. Many states accept the NRA basic pistol course as proof of training for concealed carry so if you are interested in concealed carry, this is a good place to start.

The NRA Basic Pistol class is the cornerstone of all my Handgun classes and satisfies the need for at least three of the five major topics described below. For new shooters, we highly recommend taking the NRA basic pistol class first and then the South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit class.
A South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP) class is required to legally carry a concealed handgun in the State. The SC CWP class is a six to eight-hour block of instruction which includes classroom instruction on South Carolina case law, state firearm law, firearm safety, basic marksmanship, handgun mechanisms and operation, liability related to firearms issues and a component that requires the applicant demonstrate the ability to safely fire a handgun (live fire course of fire). This class is comprised of about 6-7 hours hours of classroom instruction with one additional hour (may be less or more time) spent on the range where each student will demonstrate the safe operation and handling of a handgun (this demonstration includes a live-fire component). The NRA basic pistol class coupled with South Carolina firearm and case law law instruction meets the requirements for an CWP in South Carolina.
Topics covered in this class:
Please note that State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) has made it much easier now to apply for a CWP and get the required fingerprints done.
