We strongly recommend our First Steps+ Defensive Handgun course, which was created in response to the American public’s need for a firearm training program for new purchasers and shooters, as well as those wishing to upgrade their knowledge and confidence levels. This DFI Course extends far beyond the standard NRA First Steps course. Our course includes firearms and self defense, the use of deadly force, concealed carry, firearms and the law, State reciprocity, and much more. This is the course that everyone who owns, or is about to purchase a handgun for self defense should take. This Course is actually more advanced than the NRA Basic Pistol, and Protection Course. If you’re only going to take one handgun course, this is the one.

The DFI First Steps Handgun Course is designed to provide a hands-on introduction to the safe handling and proper use of handguns for classes of four or fewer students. This course is at a minimum, six hours long, and includes classroom and live fire exercises employing various action types and calibers. Students will learn the rules for safe gun handling; pistol & revolver model parts and operation; ammunition and caliber choices; shooting fundamentals; self defense basics; grip and stance; aimed fire and point shooting techniques; handgun cleaning and maintenance; malfunction clearing drills; handgun selection criteria; safe firearms storage, and continued opportunities for skill development. 100+ rounds of Live Fire.
