NRA classes go above and beyond the requirements needed to obtain a Concealed Weapon or Firearms License. The classes are comprehensive and cover everything from firearm safety, to an understanding of the firearm and its functions, cleaning, furthering your overall firearm knowledge. The shooting requirements for the courses help the student to not only satisfy the state mandated competency requirements, but also help the student develop and improve their shooting skills. Unlike your "run-of-the-mill" concealed weapon or firearms license classes, where the student is only expected to demonstrate their ability at firing a pistol, NRA courses teach the student the different fundamentals of shooting (stance, sight alignment, sight picture, etc.) and help to enhance the student's marksmanship skills. All NRA Classes with a shooting component (First STEPS Pistol, First STEPS Rifle, First STEPS Shotgun, Basic Pistol, Basic Rifle, Basic Shotgun and Personal Protection in the Home Courses) qualify you to obtain the State of Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearms License.
Either course exceeds the training requirements for the State of Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License.
Yes. Matter of fact, we encourage you to continue expanding upon your firearm training and education. There is always something to be learned. If you already possess your Concealed Weapons License, perhaps you may benefit from taking one of the NRA Basic or First Step Courses. Many of the courses offered to obtain a Concealed Weapons license only evaluate your ability to handle a gun and go over the laws applicable to the possession of concealed weapons or firearms, but do not necessarily go into the what is involved in shooting, firearm ownership, safety and maintenance. However, our NRA Basic or First Steps classes will go in-depth into the firearms, ammunition, cleaning, shooting techniques, stance and more that is often not covered in a Concealed Weapons Class. Furthermore, shooting is a skill that needs to be continually practiced and developed. The more you do it, the better you become. More often than not, a person took a concealed weapons class, and has not practiced over several months or even years, forgetting their fundamentals. Taking one of our classes may help refresh those skills, and also enhance them. If you've already taken a First Steps or Basic Class in one discipline, we also encourage you to continue your training and education by exploring other shooting disciplines (i.e., pistol or rifle or shotgun).
