Real World Pistol  (6-8 hours)

A handgun is a versatile tool and highly concealable for use in self-defense and defending those you love and care about. This one day defensive handgun class is designed to teach the proper use of a handgun specifically for “defensive” purposes.  We will help you master body positioning and draw stroke so you will quickly be able to get on target and be able to use your pistol as a defensive weapon.  We will help you to acquire a faster sight picture so that you can win an armed encounter.  We will cover items from proper gear selection, shooting positions, malfunction clearing and a survivor’s mindset.  We teach varying Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTP’s) that are not always known and/or practiced.  We believe that using TTP’s properly and knowing how YOU will react is a direct response of your level of training.  Based on our “Real World” experience in our daily “off duty” carrying of a pistol for defense, and in our professional “on duty” lives, we have developed this course to assist you in your preparation to use a pistol in a defensive deadly encounter.  Your initial understanding of using cover and concealment through proper shooting position (standing/kneeling/prone) will be discussed and demonstrated in this class. A competent understanding of muzzle awareness, all aspects of firearm safety and a basic fundamental understanding of how your handgun works is a requirement for this course.  (ROUND COUNT – 350 to 500 rounds)
