Basic Handgun Course

The New Mexico Shooting Sports Association has seen a spike in gun sales and with the current COVID-19 restrictions, many of those new gun owners have never even fired a gun and have not received the proper training with their new firearm. That’s why the NMSSA has put up a FREE online Handgun Course and made it available to anyone who wants a better understanding of the basics of Handguns. This course is not a replacement for hands-on training with a handgun professional. It’s strictly a training aid to give a new gun owner the Basics to Handguns. Users must sign-up for this course to begin.

Please use the following button below to sign-up for a membership to access the course.


The NRA is America’s preeminent gun rights organization, made up of nearly five million members. Together, we fight and win the toughest battles for the Second Amendment, all while offering the best firearms educational programs in the country.

Every day, the NRA fights back against politicians, judges, and bureaucrats who want to regulate, restrict, and ultimately, destroy your Second Amendment freedom.

That’s why you need to join the NRA RIGHT NOW.


Since the beginning, the Civilian Marksmanship Program has dedicated itself to providing safety education and presenting gun enthusiasts of all disciplines with venues to learn and grow in marksmanship. Over the years, the organization has proudly developed new and innovative ways to offer these individuals with the best opportunities available.

With state-of-the-art technology and some of the most pristine facilities in the world, the CMP has lived up to its mission and continues to raise the bar each and every day.
