NRA FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation
FIRST steps – Firearm Instruction, Responsibility, and Safety Training – is the NRA’s response to the American public’s need for a firearm orientation program for new purchasers. New firearm owners are encouraged to take the “first step” of obtaining training, and the NRA FIRST Steps Program is to provide a hands-on introduction to the safe handling and proper orientation of one specific firearm model.
Students receive a completion certificate at the conclusion of this NRA course; and this NRA course satisfies the training requirement for a Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit.
