SPC to offer NRA Personal Protection Inside the Home course on March 24-25


LEVELLAND – South Plains College will offer the NRA Personal Protection Inside the Home course on March 24 (Saturday) and March 25 (Sunday) in Room 115 of SPC’s Law Enforcement Technology building. 

The class times are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on March 24 with a one-hour break for lunch. The class will meet from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 25. Participants are responsible for their own lunch for both days.

Students should expect to shoot approximately 150 to 200 rounds of ammunition. Students will learn basic defensive shooting skills; strategies for home safety and responding to a violent confrontation; firearms and the law; how to choose a handgun for self-defense; and continued opportunities for skill development. Additionally, students should use their own guns to develop skills in this course. Students are required to supply a minimum of 200 rounds of ammunition.

The cost is $100. Students need to register and pay in advance. Due to the range requirements, space is limited to 15 students.  

Personal Protection Inside the Home is a vital course for anyone who keeps a pistol at home for self-defense, and is an excellent tactical follow-up for anyone who has a License To Carry. It is also a recommended course for teachers and staff whose school is considering allowing them to be armed. It requires that the participant can handle a firearm safely and shoot with some degree of accuracy. It is not a Basic Pistol course for beginners.  

The instructors will be Steve and Audra Dyer. 

To register, call Kasey Reyes, administrative assistant for the Division of Continuing and Distance Education, at (806) 716-2341 or email kreyes@southplainscollege.edu.
