NRA Classes

BASIC PISTOL The club will continue our offerings of Basic Pistol (BP) and Personal Protection in the Home (PPITH). The latest NRA requirement of mandatory completion of BP before PPITH is now fully implemented. If this sounds new to you, here’s what it means. Previously, people had been able to say that they had experience shooting so they didn’t need to take the course, basically asking for a waiver. However, feedback from actual instruction indicated less than good working knowledge. In response, the NRA developed an online course (for $60) that allowed someone to take the classroom portion, but then still required a range session to complete. This then allowed you to take the PPITH course.
SHFC has always offered both courses.  The cost for each class is $75 for non-SHFC members and $50 for members.
Please check the  2019 Event Calendar for the added BP and PPITH Classes. Please email or contact Jim Cathcart at to reserve a seat or more information.
