A pistol, or handgun, is a firearm designed to be fired while being held in one hand. While
such firearms are small and compact, they can be the hardest to learn.

The Basic Pistol course can be as short as ten hours. In it students will get the NRA's The
Basics of Pistol Shooting handbook and intensive lessons in safety, gun handling, the
positions, several practical exercises on the firing range, cleaning, storage, and a summary of
pistol sports and activities.
