Coming up in a little over a week (08/08/09) there is a NRA Basic Pistol Shooting course being offered at the Kenmore range in Bothell, WA. There is a Home Firearm Safety course also being offered on 08/01/09 at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. Have any of you guys ever taken either of these courses? I'm wondering if taking the basic pistol shooting course will teach me the same things as the home firearm safety course. I don't mind going to each, as the pistol shooting one is $50 and the home safety course is $8 or $15 depending on when I go. I don't want to waste my time at the home firearm course if I can learn the same things during the shooting course. EDIT: I spoke to one of the range guys at the place where this is held. For anybody that's interested: he said that the Basic Shooting class is structured around learning to shoot. It's not as safety oriented as the Home Firearm class. The Home class, though, is structured to teach kids about safety. It's kind of a thing where parents would take their older kids, according to him.
