SPC will present NRA Personal Protection in the Home course on March 29
LEVELLAND – South Plains College will present the NRA Personal Protection in the Home course on Saturday (March 29) in the Law Enforcement Technology Building. The cost for the course is $90. Students need to register and pay in advance; because of the range requirements, space is limited to 15 students.
The class will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday with breaks every hour and a one-hour break for lunch.
Personal Protection in the Home is an eight to 10-hour advanced pistol 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. It also includes hardening the house against burglars, and creating a safe room in case of a home invasion. The range portion includes shooting from cover and concealment while standing and while kneeling, breaking tunnel vision, flash sight picture, point shooting, verbal challenge drills and more. Students will need to bring their pistols and 100 rounds of ammunition for the range portion.
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) to maximize what can be learned from this course; either successful completion of an NRA Basic Pistol or a Concealed Handgun License course will qualify as proof.
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. 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.
