    NRA Defensive Pistol is an introductory personal protection course for those interested in concealed carry. The prerequisite for this course is NRA Basic Pistol or equivalent. The course is suitable to a wide audience but does cover mature topics. Participants must pass a live fire examination to earn the NRA certificate.

    Please feel free to contact me with questions about the course or instructor backgrounds.

    I completed this course last year and it was an excellent introduction to defensive shooting skills and concepts. VERT and his crew are good teachers and the class is worth your time and the money.

    In addition, if you need NRA-certified training for something like an out of state carry permit, I think this will suffice!

    Thank you sir. You are correct that this course will work for a Florida non-resident license. We had a participant use the NRA certificate to get a Florida CWL with no problems. I would be surprised if this wouldn't work for other states as well since Basic Pistol is a pre-requisite.

    Even though NRA calls this an advanced course it is actually introductory as it pertains to personal protection courses. It is definately not stand alone but rather a good second step after a basic pistol course and a good introduction/companion for other courses you might see advertised on INGO.

    Disclaimer.

    I will actually talk about shooting people and have been known to say the occasional curse word accidentally when emphasizing something. I work at the Co-op and my wife works in a factory, let's just say that profanity tends to pop out. My buddy Brion is LEO/SWAT and not an NRA instructor so his filter is not as finely tuned as it should be. Craig was a Marine. We do the best we can but in the end this is a mature topic and there are only so many ways to sugar coat the material. Hence the disclaimer. I wouldn't bring the kids but mom or grandma will be just fine.

    If that's the NRA stance, that's ridiculous. If you can't stand to be in a class talking about shooting people, how are you ever going to be in a situation where you actually have to do it and expect to perform?

    I can't really say what the NRA stance is on all matters. I can only speculate. You have been through NRA Basic Pistol instructor course so you know what is in the guidelines. It is what it is and my guess is you know our feelings.

    I just took it for fun. I'd have to go to the book.

    I don't mean to undermine Vert's post. I've taken a couple classes with these guys. They do a good job and are recommended. It's worth the time.
