Defensive Handgun Course
January 17th, 2021 | Krystal Reid
You may have completed the basic pistol course, or perhaps you have completed the training to have a handgun carry permit, however can you really USE your handgun? This 2 day hands-on / live fire course will address skills of gun safety, drawing from a holster, working with a concealment garment and placing the firearm in service in a defensive situation. The students, while on the range, will work and develop skills of loading and reloading, shooting while moving, effective use of sights and triggers, malfunction drills and working with a partner in a defensive situation. Our instructors will challenge the students to develop the mindset for survival. The emphasis will be placed on the safe and effective use of a handgun in a defensive situation. The program will have brief classroom session on day 1, the remainder of the program is held on the range.
The students should have a good understanding of the operation and use of their firearm before taking this program. Please contact us with any questions about the program.
