NRA Basic Pistol Course

instructor_logoWe are planning to teach another NRA Basic Pistol Course at the club on Saturday, October 21.  This 8 hour class fulfills the requirements to apply for an Ohio concealed carry permit.

The hours for the course are Saturday 8:00am to 4:00pm.

Note:  Effective 3/23/2015, the Ohio training requirements to obtain a concealed cary permit have been reduced from 12 to 8 hours (  Due to this change, the cost and duration of our course has also been reduced accordingly.

Requirements for this class are:

  1. You must bring a .22 caliber pistol. This lets us to qualify indoors if the weather doesn’t permit us on the outdoor range.
  2. Eye protection is required.
  3. Hearing protection is required.

If you have another pistol other than the .22 that you will be qualifying with for the class, please bring it with you. Weather permitting, we should have some outdoor range time so you can practice with your carry gun or any other pistol you’d like to shoot.

The cost for the class is $65 for members and $75 for non-members. Checks can be made out to the “East Palestine Sportsmen’s Club” and can be dropped off at the club during the meetings on the 1st Monday of the month.  Payments made on the first day of the class must be in cash.
