SCSSA coaches are part of a network of NRA Certified Instructers throughout the United States providing a public service by conducting NRA Basic and FIRST Steps firearm training courses. Whether you are interested in recreational shooting, competition, hunting, gun collecting, historical reenactment, home safety or personal protection—the basics are where to start! NRA Basic Firearm Training Courses teach you the principles of safe handling and shooting which help you develop the knowledge, skills and attitude for the safe and legal use of firearms.
For those coming to SCSSA without approved firearm safety training and unable to enroll in a NRA Basic Rifle Shooting course due to the time of year or other conflicts, an Orientation course may be just the ticket. After a brief 2-3 session that introduces a junior to safety and basic knowledge, he or she may then join us on the firing line shotting from a single position.
