Want to push your gun handling skills a little farther this year? Take NRA Basic Pistol, the prerequisite for our more advanced defensive courses!

Mountain Rose Defensive is proud to offer the NRA Basic Pistol course on Tuesday, April 24 starting at 9AM. This all-day class is perfect for beginners or shooters who wish to improve their skills and increase their understanding of gun safety and the fundamentals of shooting. We will teach you everything you need to know about safely handling, loading and unloading, cleaning, and firing your handgun(s). With a combination of classroom and live fire instruction on the range, I promise you will be a competent shooter and safe gun handler before we hand you that completion certificate! Our NRA-certified instructors want you to enjoy the shooting sports, and we strive to keep our teaching style friendly and supportive.

Why own a pistol if you don't know how to use it? Let us help you become one of the millions of American gun owners who have taken responsibility for their own safety and protection and empowered themselves to avoid becoming victims. This class will be held at Appalachian Gun Range in Jasper. Please check out the NRA Basic Pistol course description on our site for a list of required gear.

Bring your own handgun or rent one from the range. There is a nominal range fee that you will pay the range directly when you arrive. We maintain small class sizes for maximum safety and there are fewer than 10 seats left, so sign up today!

Looking forward to shooting with y'all! ♥
