NRA Personal Protection in the Home Course, Saturday June 16th

June 16, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Hendershot’s is very pleased to be hosting the NRA Personal Protection Inside the Home course in conjunction with I.C.E. Firearms & Defensive Training.

This 8-hour course teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to the safe and efficient use of a handgun for protection of self and family, and provides information on the law-abiding individual’s right to self-defense.  Students should expect to shoot 200 rounds of ammunition (not included in the course fee).  This class will cover the following:

  • Basic defensive shooting skills
  • Strategies for home safety
  • Responding to a violent confrontation
  • Firearms and the law
  • Choosing a handgun for self-defense
  • Continued opportunities for skill development

Part of this course will be taught by a licensed attorney that is familiar with firearms laws.

Prerequisite: This course is for law-abiding adult citizens, as defined by applicable federal, state or local law, and experienced shooters (shooters able to show mastery of the basic skills of safe gun handling, shooting a group, zeroing the firearm, and cleaning the firearm). Prospective participants can demonstrate that they have the requisite knowledge, skills, and attitudes by producing an NRA Basic Pistol Course Certificate, NRA FIRST Steps Course Certificate, NRA pistol competitive shooting qualification card, military DD 214 with pistol qualification, or passing the Pre-Course Assessment.

Note: Lesson III of this course—Firearms and the Law, and Legal Aspects of Self-Defense—is conducted by an attorney licensed to practice law within the state in which this course is given and who is familiar with this area of the law; a Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) who possesses an intermediate or higher Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) certificate granted within the state; or an individual currently certified to instruct in this area of the law by the state in which this course is presented. NRA certified instructors may conduct this lesson only if they meet the requirements stated above, and then only in their capacity as an attorney or other state certified individual, not in their capacity as an NRA certified instructor.

Personal handguns can be used upon instructor approval. Rental guns will be available. Bring a minimum of 200 rounds of ammunition, eye and hearing protection. Participants should bring a lunch.
