Which Introductory Course is Right for You?

Students with some prior experience or who just need to feel comfortable shooting a pistol should consider our 3-hour Intro to Pistols Course. This class gives an overview of the operation of pistols with an emphasis on getting comfortable with a specific firearm. This is a great class for those who don’t like written exams and have no interest in moving on to our Step 2 and 3 advanced defensive classes. However, students who take this class and feel they need additional training may use the amount paid toward the in-class portion of the 13-hour NRA course.

We are proud to introduce the Florida Concealed Gun Training (FCGT) Pistol Course. This 6-hour class is optimized to give you the same information found in longer classes (such as the NRA Basic Pistol, which is 13 hours in total). With all of our Step 1, introductory pistol courses we focus on hands-on range experience to ensure your comfort with a pistol. Review our courses page to see what is included in each class. This is another great option if you don’t care for written tests, while those who like to cement knowledge through quizzes will appreciate the 13-hour NRA class. (The first 8-hour portion of the NRA class is available online.)
