I'm not sure what you mean by "basic handgun course", but you just missed the start of the lastest NRA Handgun Safety course at Harrisburg Hunters & Anglers. The next one is in July. There is also a four day Massad Ayoob handgun course planned for September.

Information here . . . .

How basic of a handgun course are you looking for? Let me warn you that the NRA Basic Pistol shooting course is VERY BASIC. Maybe it was just how my instructor wanted to teach the class but it was all so so basic and essentially read out of an NRA handbook. So if you arent familiar with handguns take the course. If you have been shooting a few years and know your way around a handgun find something more advanced.

I've been shooting for most of my life, so I guess I'm looking more towards self defense type classes of hand guns..

Thanks

General Defensive Handgun right near you in Lewisberry. I took it a few years ago and recommend it.
