Qualification shooting is an informal, year-round recreational shooting activity that provides incentive awards for developing and improving marksmanship skills. It's a drill. NRA set the standards; you meet the challenge! Progression is self-paced and scores are challenging but attainable. Performance is measured against established par scores and any shooter who meets or exceeds those scores is entitled to the corresponding recognition awards for that rating. Trigger Action will help you keep score and verify your rating.
Shooters acquire the large Pistol discipline patch at the onset of the program and as each rating is earned, they are entitled to all of the corresponding awards for the Pistol rating. Each rating level has a skill rocker, medal, and certificate award that recognizes and highlights the achievement.
The courses of fire in the Pistol Qualification Program are designed to take shooters from beginning skill levels (Pro-Marksman, Marksman) through intermediate levels (Marksman 1st Class, Sharpshooter, Expert) up to a nationally recognized skill level -- Distinguished Expert -- the pinnacle of the program. By the time a shooter completes the Distinguished Expert rating, he or she has attained a proficiency level paralleling that of a competitively classified Sharpshooter.
This program is a skill development program. We use the qualification program as a guideline to train new shooters of all ages in the basic skill required for personal protection. An NRA Basic Pistol, Personal Protection or FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation course will provide an excellent foundation of knowledge to build upon. The NRA Basic Pistol Qualification Course provides the perfect self-paced shooting activity to help develop your skills and reward your achievements.
