    Basic Pistol Course in Northern VA?

    Hello All,

    Any recommendations for a basic pistol course in the northern VA area? I'm a newb so want to make sure I get some good instruction from the start. Here are the ones I am aware of:

    1. NRA Headquarters
    2. Perroni Tactical - seems like it teaches more than the NRA basic pistol course
    3. Gilber's Small Arms - they are booked until May

    Any others that you have experience with and can recommend? Thanks.

    Victor

    My wife took the one at NRA and was very pleased with it. I took one at the late, lamented Shooters Paradise and it was OK. I'd start with the basic and then work on the tactical course. NRA has a good course. You might look up Bruce Jackson, who gives the Utah CCW course around here. VCDL or NRA might know what he has scheduled.
