Classes are usually the 2nd weekend of the month. Please see the training calendar for additional dates.
To quote James Yeager, the root word to "gunfight" isn't "gun." It is "FIGHT"!
This comprehensive 2-day handgun class is literally a lifesaver. 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.

Got Your Six Coffee Co:
You never know what is going to happen in life. Life does not give you the option to pick your battles. At the end of the day you just need to evaluate your skills, improve where you can and train hard for any situation. I recently had the chance to train with Graham Hunt and assistant instructor Micah Mayes from Downtown Tactical. I think it is safe to say that we were put through the paces over the course of a thrilling weekend. I have had the opportunity to take several training courses during my time but this one definitely takes the cake. Check out the video to see what I mean!!:
