NOTE: THIS IS NOT AN NRA-APPROVED COURSE
THIS IS A PRIVATE TRAINING SESSION (MAXIMUM TWO STUDENTS) TO HELP YOU PREPARE AND PASS THE NRA LAW ENFORCEMENT INSTRUCTOR PISTOL & SHOTGUN COURSE. IT IS TO HELP YOU AVOID EMBARRASSMENT AND WASTING YOUR MONEY BY SHOWING UP NOT READY AND FAILING A CLASS THAT REQUIRES 100% SHOOTING SCORE TO PASS.
If you want to increase your skills, confidence and odds to pass the NRA Law Enforcement Pistol & Shotgun Instructor Level class, then this course is for you.
You will learn how to handle and shoot a pistol and a shotgun in the ways that are required to pass the class.
Our instructor has passed the NRA Law Enforcement Firearm Instructor Pistol & Shotgun shooting qualification twice on the first attempt with 100%: once with his right hand and once with his left hand. Our instructor is also an NRA Training Counselor and has trained over 600 NRA Firearm Instructors from all branches of service, and authored his own firearm training manual used by many other instructors around the country.
This is a ONE-DAY, 10-HOUR COURSE in which you will shoot 400 rounds of pistol and 200 rounds of shotgun, including some night shooting. The price is for one student with one instructor but if you have a friend you want to share the class with, we will accommodate two students for one instructor for only $300 more, which lowers your cost of the class down to $450 per person.
NOTE: No matter how much you pay us, in order to successfully pass the NRA LE class you need to shoot and handle guns well in all forms and techniques required. We can make you pretty good with our training, even if you don't know much from the start, BUT, you have to follow the discipline, not whine, follow our advice and keep training even after the class. Because if you don't practice to maintain the skills and improve them, then no amount of money or number of classes you take will help you.
This is taught on a private range equipped with 2 Tactical Bays, a 1,200sf, 5 rooms, 360-degree shoothouse and a 1.5 miles amphibious combat course but you will only use the Tactical Bays, and possibly the shoothouse for fun if you do well in class. It is located North of Jacksonville. Pickup is in Yulee.
It is best if you go through this course with the same guns you will use for the actual NRA course, but, if your guns are found inadequate we will have adequate guns to replace your guns.
You will need the following
- A working quality handgun of a caliber legal to carry on duty by a security officer according to Florida law.
- Three magazines (or speed-loaders for revolvers) that work. Remember that 80% of stoppages come from magazine issues.
- Duty holster and magazine pouch.
- NO universal holsters such as soft nylon holsters with straps.
- NO Serpa holster allowed.
- NO Drop-leg holsters.
- NO inside-the-waistband holster.
- Magazine pouch that holds two magazines.
- A working quality 12-gauge pump-action shotgun designed for patrol or home defense. That means no sporting shotguns such as used for Skeet or Trap or Sporting Clay.
- No semi-automatic.
- Your shotgun should have a sling, unless you want to hold it 100% of the class.
- A mounted light is preferred but is not required.
- A saddle shell carrier is HIGHLY recommended for practicing transition, OR in the least a belt shell carrier.
- 400 to 500 rounds of quality cartridges for your handguns.
- 100 to 150 shells of #8 birdshot that fit in your shotgun.
- 50 shells of 9-pellet 00 buckshot, preferably Federal Flite Control Wad Premium shells.
- 25 rifled slugs.
If you have any doubt about your equipment contact us as soon as possible so that we can discuss your needs and what you have. We're here to help you, not to make it difficult.
- We will ask for a copy of your G license or whatever credential documentation that qualifies you to be a candidate for the NRA Law Enforcement Firearm Instructor Course.
- You must be fluent in English.
- You must be a US Citizen or Permanent Resident Alien and be able to document it.
- Ear protection, preferably electronic ear protection so that you can effectively hear the range commands and instructions without having to take your ear protection on and off all day.
- Safety glasses approved for range use. Preferably a clear set AND a sunglasses set.
- A good and positive attitude towards learning and the rules of safety is essential.
- Knowing your handgun and shotgun well enough to be able to load, shoot and unload them safely, while keeping the guns pointed in a safe direction at all time.
- Your lunch, enough hydration and all hygiene needs (sunscreen, insect repellent, etc.) to sustain yourself for 10 hour of training likely on a hot day on the range.
For some individuals this course is not sufficient to make them proficient enough to pass the NRA Law Enforcement Firearm Instructor course. If you've never held a gun in your life or haven't shot in decades you'll require more training. However, if at least you can shoot the Florida G License Annual Qualification with a score of 200 or higher, then you should be fine.
