NRA HOME FIREARM SAFETY
This course teaches clients the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for the safe handling and storage of firearms and ammunition in the home. It explores the 3 different types of firearms (handguns, shotguns and rifles), their actions, and intended uses.
In this four hour non-shooting course, clients are taught NRA’s rules for safe gun handling; primary causes of firearms accidents; different firearm categories; firearm parts; how to load/unload different action types; ammunition components; cleaning; care; and safe storage of firearms in the home.
The certificate earned from completing this course is accepted nationally for those states or counties that require a Firearm Safety Class. For those where it is not required, it is also good to include with your application for a pistol permit as it demonstrates a dedication to safe and responsible gun ownership.
