5. You must have 50 rounds of factory manufactured ammunition for each qualification round you shoot.

There is a fifty dollar, ($50) fee for the handgun qualification to cover range expenses. It must be paid on the qualification day prior to shooting. Qualification fees will not be refunded.
Participants should have adequate ammunition to complete two qualification courses should the need arise to shoot the course twice. Any Nebraska Certified Firearms instructor can administer the qualification course.
Upon successful completion of the State handgun qualification course, complete the form TC‐004B and have the firearms instructor return it to NLETC. A card that states you have passed the Nebraska State handgun qualification will be issued and returned to the firearms instructor who will then sign the card and forward it on to the shooter. The card will be valid for one calendar year.
