SPC to offer Personal Protection Outside the Home Course in May
LEVELLAND –South Plains College will offer the NRA Basic Personal Protection Outside The Home course on May 4-5 with the advanced version on May 11 in the Law Enforcement Technology building.
Students must take both days of the basic version, and may take the advanced version at no extra cost. The cost is $100, and students also must furnish their own handgun, ammunition and either a strong-side holster that covers the trigger guard or a holster purse.
Students need to register and pay in advance. Because of the nature of the range portion, enrollment is limited to 15.
The course teaches students the knowledge, skills and attitude essential for avoiding dangerous confrontations and for the safe, effective and responsible use of a concealed pistol for self-defense outside the home. From a review of safe firearms handling and proper mindset to presentation from concealment and multiple shooting positions, this course contains the essential skills and techniques needed to prevail in a life-threatening situation.
The NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home is divided into two levels (basic and advanced). Level one is a nine-hour course and offers the essential knowledge and skills that must be mastered in order to carry, store, and use a firearm safely and effectively for personal protection outside the home.
Upon completion of level one, students may choose to attend level two, which is an additional five hours of range training and teaches advanced shooting skills. After the classroom portion, students should expect to spend several hours on the range and shoot approximately 100 rounds of ammunition during level one. Level two involves five additional hours on the range and approximately 115 rounds of ammunition. The ammunition requirements are minimal and may be exceeded.The NRA Basics of Personal Protection Outside The Home is for adult individuals who are not disqualified from possessing a firearm as defined by applicable federal, state, or local law and are of good repute and possess defensive pistol skills as presented in the NRA Basics of Personal Protection In The Home Course. Participants must also understand the basic legal concepts relating to the use of firearms in self-defense, and must know and observe not only general gun safety rules, but also those safety principles that are specific to defensive situations. Prospective participants can demonstrate that they have the requisite knowledge, skills, and attitudes by producing an NRA Basic Personal Protection In The Home Course Certificate, a Concealed Handgun License, or by passing the pre-course evaluation.
The classroom portion will begin at 8 a.m. in the Law Enforcement Technology building on the Levelland SPC campus. The basic range portion will begin at 2 p.m. on May 5 and the advanced range portion will begin at 10 a.m. on May 11 (Saturday).
