Learning basic shooting techniques is a necessity for people from all walks of life.
While there are an estimated 270-310 million guns in America, most polls show that fewer than 40% of Americans own firearms. With this many guns around, there is a good possibility that nearly everyone will have an encounter with a firearm at some point in their life.
Understanding these weapons and how they can be used safely and effectively forms the basis of much of the online training available on the National Rifle Association website.
Depending on where you live in the country, it may be difficult to find a training location or time to get there. With online training, you can gain the same skills that you would in a traditional classroom, but in a much more convenient format. Get your concealed carry permit, learn personal defense strategies and more!
Benefits of Online Firearm Training
Since 1940, the NRA has been offering training to firearm enthusiasts of all ages. Today, that training has simply taken a slightly different turn. Some people who have received rudimentary firearm training from friends of family members, but there could be some dangerous gaps in knowledge. Having a vague idea what to do isn’t good enough if you happen to find yourself in a critical situation.
Online courses allow busy individuals to work around their schedules and even pause their training for a period of time to continue it later. This allows a broader spectrum of individuals to learn proper judgment of when to pull the trigger — and when you should simply hold.
Taking courses online also allows attendees to learn at their own pace and avoid feeling overwhelmed by individuals who have more experience with firearms. Instead, they will experience a positive learning environment developed by knowledgeable individuals with years of training experience.
