NRA Personal Protection Outside The Home
The Home participants in this course must be at least 21 years of age and possess defensive pistol skills presented in the NRA Basics of Personal
Protection In The Home Course. Participants must also understand the basic legal concepts relating to the use of firearms in self-defense, and must
know and observe not only general gun safety rules, but also those safety principles that are specific to defensive situations. Prospective participants
can demonstrate that they have the requisite knowledge, skills, and attitudes by producing an NRA Basic Personal Protection In The Home Course
The Home Course is both comprehensive and intensive in its approach to equip the defensive shooting candidate with the skills needed to survive
serious adversity. 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
