Sounds like you've got some good intentions. I personally don't support the NRA, they endorse an activity I disagree with. But that's my issue. Have you checked with the indoor range there in Reno? If I remember correctly, they are off McCarran east of the airport-if they're still there. It was years ago after I had first moved to NV. I seem to recall that they offered instruction to the public and gun rentals as well. Shooting orgs like that might be a good place to get started. Best of luck.
