To quote James Yeager, the root word to "gunfight" isn't "gun." It is "FIGHT"!
This comprehensive 2-day handgun class is literally a life saver. Our Tactical Pistol course prepares you to prevail in a real world violent confrontation. This intensive course covers an incredible amount of material in just two days.
Topics include the role and attributes of the handgun, legal aspects of deadly force, anatomical stopping power, mental conditioning for combat, movement and communication. Live fire drills include both one- and two-handed shooting, shooting on the move, use of cover and concealment, loading and reloading, using both eye level as well as retention techniques, at a variety of ranges and from a variety of body positions. This course is about 40% lecture on mindset, tactics, skill, and legal issues but don’t worry because you will still be shooting a minimum of 750 rounds while you are on the range!
We respectfully request that students have read "The Principles of Personal Defense" by Col. Jeff Cooper before attending class.
