The Adams County Sport Handgunners Association offers the NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home Course. It is the "next level" NRA handgun course, open to those who have satisfactorily completed the NRA's Basic Pistol and Personal Protection Inside the Home Courses.
This course is an intermediate level shooting course on how to use a firearm for self-defense, and requires students to have already mastered safe gun handling and basic marksmanship skills prior to attending the course. (This course is not a basic shooting course and requires advanced shooting skills.) The NRA Basics of Personal Protection Outside the Home Course introduces students to the knowledge, skills, and attitude involved in safely, responsibly and effectively employing a concealed pistol for self-defense. This in an intensive course, as the student must learn and practice many diverse shooting skills in order to respond quickly and appropriately to the broad range of threats he or she may encounter outside the home. Similarly, the student must learn and understand the unique safety and legal issues that apply when a concealed pistol is carried in public. This course covers the legal ramifications of concealed carry, including who can legally carry a pistol, when concealed carry is and is not permitted, the legal and ethical ramifications when responding to a life-threatening encounter using a concealed pistol, and the legal, moral, emotional, and social aftermath of the use of deadly force outside the home.
To take this course you must have completed the NRA Basic Pistol and Personal Protection Inside the Home courses and become familiar with the information presented in both courses. This course does not permit time to cover information that has already been covered in the previous courses but instead builds upon that knowledge to take you to the next level.
This course will cover both Level 1 and Level 2 (advanced) portions of the NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home Course.
This course will run from approximately 8:00am to 5:30pm. We do however teach based on quality of training not quantity of time so the class will move at a speed based on students ability to fully grasp each skill taught before moving forward so end times could be earlier or later.
Course Cost = $80.00
Required Equipment: no exceptions you must have all equipment listed below:
- Centerfire handgun (revolver or semi-automatic) in good operating condition (students must be thoroughly familiar with their firearm’s operation).

Please note the following general rules: You do not have to be a member of the ACSHA to sign up for the course. In order to participate you must be able to legally own and possess a handgun. No live ammunition will be allowed in the classroom (for your safety and ours). An instructor will check guns at the door to make sure they are not loaded. Since class materials must be ordered beforehand, first paid is first served (the only way to ensure your spot in the course is to pay the fee) and refunds will only be available if another participant takes your place. All participants will be required to sign a liability waiver. Finally, there are a few more helpful hints to be mentioned. Dress comfortably and bring a jacket for the range. You might want to bring a ball cap if it's going to be a sunny day. Wear shoes that can get a bit muddy (the floors of our pistol ranges are lined with stone, but it might get a little messy walking out to the range). We will provide coffee and doughnuts, but as noted above you need to bring lunch, snacks and drinks.
All of the instructors at ACSHA are EXCITED about the ongoing opportunity to teach this course. It is educational/informational, safe and FUN!
