The cost for use of a Pistol Masters center-fire handgun for the Pistol Masters Concealed Carry Course and the NRA Basic Personal Protection IN the Home Course is $75.  


Ammunition costs are dependent upon the caliber of handgun used.  Plan on shooting 100 rounds of ammunition for each of these courses.  


We recommend that, if you do not already own a center-fire handgun or are unsure of what type and caliber of handgun you would prefer, you use one of ours for these courses so you can learn what type, make, and model suits you best.

         • .380ACP  (semi-automatic/auto-loading)

         • .45ACP  (semi-automatic/auto-loading)  


Please note that if you use a Pistol Masters handgun for the Concealed Carry Course and/or the Basic Personal Protection In the Home Course, we require that you use our ammunition.
