For a couple weeks I've been taking an online course from the N.R.A called Basic Pistol Shooting. Since I got my conceal carry I wanted to be more knowledgeable with my weapon before carrying it on my person. This first phase taught me a lot. Everything I will need to know about the basics of pistols including semi auto and revolver, including taking it apart to cleaning it.
I 'graduated' this course online back on Thursday and then everyone in the group met up for Phase 2 of the course.. Hands on shooting. In order to pass this phase you needed to complete the Red Achievement Target. Get 5 shots into each of the red circles at 10 feet.
Since this was my 4th time shooting my gun and it's been a good couple months since I've taken it out of my drawer, I did really well.. After all the techniques I learned including form, the fundamentals of shooting and positioning, I am now loving my gun. I thought I was going to have to get another one and after taking this course, I am in love with it all over again..
I passed the Red Test and have completely passed Phase 2 of this course. I do have the opportunity to try for the White and Blue Targets. White at 15 feet and Blue at 20 feet to advance my skills and training. I look forward to doing that in the coming month!
