NRA Competitions Presents, Intro To Handgun Competition School
The NRA's Competitive Shooting Division is proud to present an incredible, affordable, one day Introduction to Handgun Competition School.
The NRA understands that newer shooters interested in handgun competition are often confused by the many differences between today’s competitive handgun match disciplines. During this course of instruction, students will learn the differences between USPSA, NRA Action Pistol, Steel Challenge, NRA Precision Pistol, Falling Steel and IDPA Handgun Competitions.
Students will also learn to draw from the holster safely, reload, shoot from various positions including the use of barricades, windows, etc. In addition, students will shoot actual match courses of fire similar to those they might encounter in an actual match. NRA Bianchi Cup ranges, Steel Challenge, Falling Steel, USPSA Precision Pistol, and/or IDPA courses of fire will be used during this training.
