NRA Handbook

 We offer classes each month-both weekdays & Weekends!
Our classes are Conducted in West Columbia SC in a comfortable classroom environment in a  family setting.  We are also contracted to teach at multiple business locations in the Columbia SC area, which provide the classroom and facilities for our classes.  Drinks and snacks are available.


Since you need to fire your handgun and qualify with it, we complete this portion of our class at a National Rifle Association approved outdoor range nearby.  Since SAFETY is the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of our classes we feel the outdoor range is best because one of our instructor team members is ALWAYS observing to assist you for SAFETY reasons.  As you know, at an indoor range, dividers are used between shooters, which PREVENTS the range instructors and Range Safety Officers from observing you properly.  The outdoor range uses the natural settings and your neighbors’ gun noise is quickly dispersed in the atmosphere, as opposed to firing in a small restrictive compartment at an indoor range, where you cannot be observed properly and handgun accidents are common.


We encourage student participation.  Please do not expect a lecture.  Your experience is important to us, and always offers an important aspect to our classes. Safety is ALWAYS paramount, but we have FUN while learning, and sharing experience.


Your total cost for this course is $75.00, ($85.00 weekends) cash, personal check or certified money orders payable to: James D. Jones.

Training includes all range fees, targets, handouts, handouts, and course material, including a Self Defense CWP Training Center Certificate of Training and/or a NRA Certificate of Training.
