The goal of the NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting-Instructor Led Training course is to teach students the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for owning and using a pistol safely. This 8-hour course will cover both the revolver and the semi-automatic action types in detail and it is the pre-requisite course for the NRA Pistol Instructor course. Students may provide their own handgun and ammunition. Handguns must be in good working condition and may be chambered in any caliber. There will be firearms available if you do not have one of your own at no extra cost (But, you must purchase our ammunition for our handguns). Contact the Instructor for more details and to make payment.

Course topics include gun safety rules, proper operation of revolvers and semi-automatic pistols, ammunition knowledge and selection, pistol selection and storage, shooting fundamentals, pistol inspection and maintenance, marksmanship, and shooting range safety. Additionally, students will complete live fire training and a nationally standardized shooting qualification while on the range with an NRA Certified Instructor. Students will receive the NRA Guide: Basics of Pistol Shooting handbook, take a Basics of Pistol Shooting Student Examination and receive a course completion certificate bearing the signature of the NRA Secretary and your NRA Certified Instructor.

This course is designed to introduce the student to the real-world use of their Every Day Carry(EDC) Handgun. Testing and evaluating your everyday carry can help to tune skills, maximize proficiency and minimize the unnecessary. This course is the standard for which we train here at Apache Solutions LLC and is very much essential for those that wish to become a better shooter and an overall, more responsible armed citizen. *** NEW** This course now covers Medical considerations for your EDC!

AEDC (Advancing Every Day Carry): If you have taken our EDC (Every Day Carry) course, this is the next step. What an awesome course covering subjects such as critical movement, discretionary target selection, mass crowds, cover and concealment and more!

I believe the word "Advanced" has been given an inappropriate stigma over the years and is often misinterpreted. Bruce Lee explains that Advanced Skills are just the Basics mastered.
Advanced: Far on or ahead in development or progress.
Basic: The essential facts or subjects of a skill.
Many "Advanced" classes paint the image of something out of a John Wick movie with flashy, cool moves and what we like to call "enter-trainment." This is NOT what we are about. We want our students to be able to use these skills to save their own life! Not to look cool on Instagram.
In this class, we explain when and why a student should be "Advancing" their skillsets, or moving forward in the development of their EDC. Much like the EDC course, this is about considerations! Where the one-day- EDC course focuses very heavily on those technical skillsets and equipment, the AEDC course delves further into the overall mindset and skills needed in the complex and cognitive aspects of fighting for your life.

Required gear:
What to bring: 600 rounds min of ammunition for your gun or guns of choice. Holster(s), spare magazines (spare magazine holster optional but it will come in handy). If you have a speed loader, I would bring it for your thumb's sake. Eye protection and ear protection. If you would like to bring a lunch, you are welcome to eat on the range for the sake of more range time, otherwise, you will be given some break time to go and grab a bite from town. We will have bottled water on the range for you to take advantage of. If you would like to bring Gatorades or other drinks, that is totally fine. If you are the note-taking type, you are welcome to take notes. You are welcome to film almost every drill we perform on Saturday. We just ask that you give us a heads up. If you are still deciding on which gun to bring, bring them both. If you open carry at all, now would be the time to put it to the test as well. Trust me, there will be plenty enough repetitions and drills to go around for multiple guns. A camping chair would be a good idea. Dress for the appropriate weather conditions.
