Mystic Valley Gun Club is proud to partner with Gun Owner's Action League to offer the NRA Home Firearm Safety and Basic Pistol Instructors Class. The cost of the class is $250 dollars for GOAL members and $350 for non-GOAL members (a one year GOAL membership is only $30 bucks, so it makes sense to join.) Mystic Valley is offering a program to reimburse members who take the class and volunteer to help the pistol school (see Dave Joy or John Barry for details.)

To qualify as an NRA Instructor:

  • Candidates must possess and demonstrate a solid background in firearm safety and shooting skills acquired through previous firearm training and/or previous shooting experience. Instructor candidates must be intimately familiar with each action type in the discipline they wish to be certified.
  • Candidates will be required to demonstrate solid and safe firearms handling skills required to be successful during an instructor training course by completing pre-course questionnaires and qualification exercises administered by the NRA Appointed Training Counselor.
  • Candidates must satisfactorily complete an NRA Instructor Training Course in the discipline they wish to teach (e.g., NRA Basic Pistol Course), and receive the endorsement of the NRA Training Counselor conducting that training.
  • Students must bring a semi-automatic pistol and a revolver, both chambered in .22LR, and at least 50 rounds of .22LR ammunition for the live fire portion of the course. MVGC will not be able to provide any firearms or ammunition for this course.
