The NRA Personal Protection OUTSIDE the Home (PP2)
is the next level up from NRA Personal Protection INSIDE
the Home. The main focus of this course is the effective use of a concealed handgun
for self defense on the street. Included are chapters on concealment techniques and devices,
presenting the handgun from concealment, utilizing cover and concealment outdoors. This
innovative course include presentation and movement, point shooting, instinctive shooting,
low-light shooting, engaging multiple targets and one-hand shooting.
These skills and other presented in this course form the core shooting skills used to counter a
life-threatening attack outside the home.
The course is divided into two
levels: Basic PP2 and ADVANCED PP2. The Basic Level covers presentation from a concealed
holster (or purse), shooting from cover, shooting one-handed, and point shooting. The Advanced
level includes moving while shooting, shooting from low cover, shooting from sitting, turning,
prone, low-light and hip-shooting (called the "speed rock"). In total there are seven segments
including Strategies for Personal Safety Outside the Home; Carrying a Concealed Handgun and
Presenting from Concealment; Developing Basic Defensive Shooting Skills; Developing Concealed
Carry Skills; plus the all-important Self-Defense and the Law. The course is a hands-on
program with both levels encompassing fourteen hours of classroom and range instruction.
