BigShots Indoor Range


Our NRA Pistol Instructor Training course is designed to develop NRA Certified Instructors who possess the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to conduct the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course.  The Pistol Instructor Training begins with our NRA Basic Instructor Training class, then the Basics of Pistol Shooting, and then the Pistol Instructor Training.  These 3 classes together form the required course for NRA Pistol Instructor certification. (You are not considered an NRA Certified Instructor until the NRA Training Department processes your application and issues your instructor credentials.)  This includes the Basic Instructor Training (BIT), the Student Basic Pistol, and the Pistol Instructor Training so no other courses will be required to obtain your NRA Pistol Instructor Credentials after passing this course. 

NRA Pistol Instructor certification is a requirement for becoming a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) Instructor in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Colorado, Missouri, and many other states. Remember that the individual states decide all matters relating to their CHP programs including whether, when, and to whom they issue Instructor certificates. You must apply directly to your state and meet their requirements for certification as a CHP instructor.

The Training Counselor (Justin Grusing) for this course has been a Nebraska Concealed Carry instructor for several years so if you are taking this class to prepare for becoming a concealed carry instructor you will be able to get many of your questions answered to make the journey much smoother.

You will just need to bring your handgun and approximately 200 rounds of ammo so you can demonstrate your ability to shoot to the standards required to be an NRA instructor.  You will be required to shoot 16 out of 20 rounds in a 6" groups on an 8" circle from 15 yards.   You will be given two chances per day to accomplish this.  

You can pay for the class with credit card or debit card below or if you are going to pay by check please select the "Pay Instructor Directly" option.  Your spot will not be reserved until the check is received.

NOTICE: Due to a recent change in the NRA Pistol Training course, it is required that you complete the online portion of the student course prior to attending the instructor course so you will be familiar with the material your Blended Learning students will have before coming to you for a Phase 2 portion of the course.  You can do this at and it will cost $60 paid directly to the NRA or you can pay for a control code below for $25 and I will send you a code to enroll in the course online.  You will be assigned a PIN upon completion of the online course so bring that with you.  (It will be printed on the certificate of completion)

The $300 $270 includes the BIT, the student course, and the Pistol Instructor training.  Classes start at 5:30 pm and we will be at BigShots Indoor Range at 399 Sun Valley Blvd, Lincoln, NE.  We will try and finish between 9:30 and 10:30 nightly.  We may need to complete the course on Friday night if we do not have enough time in the first 3 evenings.
