  • General and NRA Certified Classes Available.

    Several NRA classes are available to TCRGC members and non-members and are taught by NRA Certified Instructors. If you are genuinely interested in taking one or more of these classes, please contact: Phil@TCRGC.org.

    1. Michigan CCW (NRA’s - Personal Protection in the Home)
    This is a minimum eight (8) hour course that generally takes 9-10 hours and maybe split over 2 days on some occasions. This course meets the legal requirements of Michigan Public Act 719 (2002). It includes a minimum one hour from a highly qualified attorney (with excellent firearms skills) on the legal aspects of Concealed Carry. Students will be expected to bring a handgun that is sighted-in and reliable and about 100 rounds of your ammunition. You will receive a 200 page NRA book and must pass both written and shooting tests prior to receiving a certificate of completion that is needed in order to apply for a Michigan Concealed Pistol License. The cost to TCRGC members is $115. Please note the pre-reqs to this class below.

    2. NRA’s “Basic Pistol”
    This is a ten (10) hour course oriented to new or very novice handgun shooters. It covers: safe handling, firearm parts and functioning, ammunition, shooting techniques, hands-on shooting with the instructor’s or your firearms, cleaning, and shooting opportunities. A certificate is awarded after successful written test completion. Due to the length of this class, it is only planned for groups of several students at a time. Contact Shannan@TCRGC.org.

    3. NRA’s “First Steps Pistol Orientation”
    This is a three (3) hour mini-version of the Basic Pistol course above and is also oriented toward pending and new handgun owners. It is also meets the CCW course pre-reqs and successful completion results in a NRA Certificate. Contact Shannan@TCRGC.org.

    4. General basic handgun orientation is available to new and novice shooters on a more informal basis and without receiving a NRA Certificate. This training is provided by experienced club range officers using their personal handguns. It would cover basic firearm/range safety, basic firearm operation, basic shooting techniques, and live range time. Training would last about an hour and cost would be the normal $15 for A Daily Limited Membership and $5 for an hour of range time. Student must supply the .22LR ammunition. This training would need to scheduled in advance through Phil@TCRGC.org and would occur during normal open range hours.

    Prior to be registered for a CCW/CPL class, students should be able to do all of the following:

    State and demonstrate safe gun handling skills.

    Adjust their sights correctly to change the point of bullet impact.

    Adequately disassemble their handgun and demonstrate safe cleaning procedures.

    And shoot three 5 shot groups that are smaller than nine inches at a distance of 15 feet.

    The CCW class is not a class for new or novice handgun shooters. Those interested in a CPL permit, that can not demonstrate basic handgun safety and marksmanship should take the NRA Basic Pistol course or the more informal basic training first.
