NRA Personal Protection Outside The Home Course

The course teaches students the knowledge, skills and attitude essential for avoiding dangerous confrontations and for the safe, effective and responsible use of a concealed pistol for self-defense outside the home. Students have the opportunity to attend this course using a quality strong side hip holster that covers the trigger, or a holster purse. From a review of safe firearms handling and proper mindset to presentation from concealment and multiple shooting positions, this course contains the essential skills and techniques needed to prevail in a life-threatening situation.

The NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home is divided into two levels (basic and advanced). Level one is a nine-hour course and offers the essential knowledge and skills that must be mastered in order to carry, store, and use a firearm safely and effectively for personal protection outside the home. Upon completion of level one, students may choose to attend level two, which is an additional five hours of range training and teaches advanced shooting skills. After the classroom portion, students should expect to spend several hours on the range and shoot approximately 100 rounds of ammunition during level one. Level two involves five additional hours on the range and approximately 115 rounds of ammunition. The ammunition requirements are minimum and may be exceeded. Students will receive the NRA Guide to the Basics of Personal Protection Outside The Home handbook, NRA Gun Safety Rules brochure and the appropriate course completion certificates(s), NRA Basic Personal Protection Outside The Home (identifies strong-side hip holster or purse use) certificate, and NRA Advanced Personal Protection Outside The Home certificate. This is a 1-1/2 to 2 day class, so please plan accordingly. Instructor candidates need both the Basic and Advanced trainging in the course.
girlwithhandgunThe NRA Basics of Personal Protection Outside The Home is for adult individuals who are not disqualified from possessing a firearm as defined by applicable federal, state, or local law and are of good repute and possess defensive pistol skills presented in the NRA Basics of Personal Protection In The Home Course.

Prospective participants can demonstrate that they have the requisite knowledge, skills, and attitudes by producing an NRA Basic Personal Protection In The Home Course Certificate, or by passing the pre-course evaluation.

3 Gun Dog Fight! The Range Session for Operators!

youtubeheaderEveryone's an Operator until it's time to do Operator stuff! We all know it, we all seen and heard them. Well, here's your chance to prove it. You've got the guns, you've got the ammo and all the fancy accessories, now let's see if you've got the brawn and the skill set to use it. The Dog Fight!, is a full day range session to test your skills and see if you reign victor at the end of the day. Sign up now since we only take 12 people per session.

The session will start with simple drills to eliminate the newbies and facebook warriors, each drill will become increasingly more difficult and complex as the day goes on with multiple threats, positions, mag changes, platform transitions and much more. Try to keep up so you don't get eliminated as there are various reasons that you might (just keep reading......

You will encounter active threats, hostage situations, shoot & no-shoot targets, timed drills, you will also encounter mag changes, gun stoppages, platform transitions and need to make quick decisions in dynamic situations. The question is will you still be standing at the end of the day. This is the time to test your gear, yourself, your skills and decision making in real encounters. You will shoot on the move, behind barricades, standing, kneeling, prone etc. If this all sounds too difficult for you, it probably is, only one way to find out; you can participate or you can continue to be a gun owning couch potato. The decision is yours!

Non-Inclusive list of Elimination Factors:

  • Too many unaccounted rounds.
  • Hitting No-threat targets.
  • Failure to Follow directions.
  • Gear or safeties that do not work. 
        ~  All gear will be checked at the begining of the session.
  • Unsafe holsters or holstering.
  • Killing a Hostage.
  • Elimination by a Range Officer.

Gear Needed:

  • Any Rifle, AK, AR, PC Carbine or AR/AK Pistol with sling. (Slings are not optional).
  • Iron sights, Red Dot or magnified scopes acceptable.
  • 2 magazines with mag carrier or chest rig for Rifle magazines.
  • Semi-auto handgun with strong side or appendix holster.  MOS sights OK - no other carry mode acceptable.
      ~ Note: Appendix carry is not the preferred carry method for slung rifles.
  • 2 magazines & mag carrier for pistol magazines.
  • 200 rounds handgun ammunition. NO remanufactured or reloaded ammunition.
  • 200 rounds rifle ammunition. NO remanufactured or reloaded ammunition.
  • Hydration
  • Eye & ear protection
  • Knee pads optional

This is NOT a competition, this is a skills test, there are no prizes, no atta-boy's or kudos other than the satisfaction that you attended and knowing you can keep up with other operators. Successful attendees still standing at the end of the day will have the satisfaction of knowing that they are in the top 1% of all gun owners. You may fail, you may prevail, but we guarantee you will have a lot of fun and learn a lot!

Note:  All operators will received a "Certificate of Attendance" indicating highest stage achieved. Sorry no participation trophy's today.
Note:  You can change guns at anytime during the session with Range Officer approval after safety check of the gun. Failure to notify range officer will result in dismissal.

Failure to observe the rules of safe firearm handling will result in immediate dismissal from the session. This includes muzzle discipline, trigger finger discipline, flagging anyone or yourself, not using safety on slung rifles, and others as determined by a range officer. If you don't have these basic fundamentals down including working from a holster, you probably should not sign up for this range session.
