SPC to host Personal Protection courses Nov. 3-4
LEVELLAND – South Plains College will offer both the NRA’s “Personal Protection in the Home” and “Personal Protection Outside the Home” courses simultaneously on Nov. 3 and Nov. 4 (Saturday and Sunday) in the Law Enforcement Technology Building. The cost of the courses is $125, and students must take both parts of the course.
Students are urged to register and pay in advance due to range requirements. Space is limited.
The class will begin at 8 a.m. on Nov. 3 (Saturday) with breaks every hour and a one-hour break for lunch, and resume at 2 p.m. on Nov. 4 (Sunday).
The “Personal Protection in the Home” is an eight- to 10-hour course covering defensive shooting skills, firearms and the law, how to choose a handgun for self-defense, and how to respond to a violent confrontation in the home.
The “Personal Protection Outside the Home” course adds avoiding dangerous confrontations and the safe, effective and responsible use of a concealed pistol for self-defense outside the home.
The range portion will be taught on Nov. 4 (Sunday) will begin with shooting from cover and concealment while standing and while kneeling; drawing from the holster and shooting from behind low barricades; shooting from a seated position; and special tactics like point shooting, and shooting in low light conditions. Students will need a strong side holster or holster purse, a concealment garment, a pistol and 250-300 rounds of ammunition. Participants should expect to fire more than 200 rounds of ammunition.
The NRA Basic Personal Protection course participants must be law abiding, adults (at least 21 years old), and experienced shooters (shooters able to show mastery of the basic skills of safe gun handling, shooting a group, zeroing the firearm, and cleaning the firearm; either successful completion of an NRA Basic Pistol or a Concealed Handgun License course will qualify as proof) to maximize what can be learned from this course. These are not introductory courses.
This 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 Concealed Handgun License.
