NRA Basic Pistol

The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting course is the best way for you to learn the basics of pistol shooting from the top firearms training organization in the world! The course is the first steps for you to obtain the proper certification for your concealed carry permit in some states. Be sure to contact your county, city or state to find out whether this course fulfills the requirement.

How long is the training?

Ohio requires you to take 8 hours of training (specifically 6 hours of classroom, 2 hours of range time) in order to be able to apply for a concealed carry license.

Which states will accept my Ohio license?

Currently, the Ohio license is honored in 39 different states. (The states not covered are: California, Oregon, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Maryland & Hawaii.)

What will I need for class?

• Photo ID
• Any balance you owe (if you didn't prepay)
• Appropriate clothing for weather
• Handgun and 50 rounds of ammo

Do I have to be 21?

The certificate of completion we give you is valid for 3 years. So you can take the training now but you'll have to wait until on or after your 21st birthday to apply with the sheriff's office.

This course is guaranteed to meet Ohio's concealed handgun training requirements.
