FIRST Steps: Firearm Instruction, Responsibility, and Safety Training
This course is the National Rifle Association’s response to the American public’s need for a Firearm orientation program for new purchasers. New Firearm owners are encouraged to take the “first step” of obtaining training, and the NRA FIRST Steps program is designed to provide a hands-on introduction to the safe handling and proper orientation of one specific firearm model.
Since FIRST Steps orientations are model specific, and teach only the most basic shooting skills, they are not complete “courses” in the traditional sense of the word. They do provide a thorough introduction to Firearm safety, handling, and shooting skills.
Orientation Goal: To provide beginning shooters with an introduction to the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to own and use a specific pistol model safely.
The class is approximately 3 hours long and includes the following:
Lesson I: Introduction to Pistol Safety, Parts, and Operation
Lesson II: Introduction to Ammunition and the Fundamentals of Pistol Shooting
Lesson III: Introduction to Pistol Shooting from the Benchrest Position (Live Fire Exercises)
Lesson IV: Introduction to Pistol Cleaning, Storage, and Training Opportunities
Required Equipment: Provided by student
Ammunition (100 rounds should be sufficient)
