Specifically designed for those who already have experience with a handgun and may wish to obtain their Colorado CCW/CHP – Concealed Handgun PermitIt is easiest for most people to visualize and prepare for using a handgun for defense of themselves and family inside their home.  This course focuses on the fundamentals of personal protection inside a home environment while meeting safety training requirements and certification for the application of a CHP/CCW.

The Home Protection Basic Course teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to the safe and efficient use of a handgun for protection of self and family, and to provide information on the law-abiding individual’s right to self-defense:

  • Apply NRA Safe Gun handling practices with a handgun inside the home.
  • Students will learn basic defensive shooting skills
  • Strategies for home safety and responding to a violent confrontation
  • Discussion of firearms and the law
  • Multiple shooting positions.

This is not a beginner course.  This is part an official intermediate NRA course.  It is for shooters who have already developed a basic competency in safety, marksmanship, maintenance and operation of a handgun.  This four (4) hour course is delivered by an NRA Certified Instructor in the intermediate NRA PPITH Course (Personal Protection Inside the Home).  Content and materials presented are delivered directly from the NRA PPITH course and may be applied towards the full course credential, should the student wish to do so with the instructor.  

Students will receive a certificate upon completion of the course and ‘live fire’ range qualification.  Students will need a handgun, spare magazines and up to 100 rounds of ammunition. Handguns, Holsters, Purses, magazines and ammunition are available at The Shootist Pistol Range.
