This is an intensive full day course that covers the essential skills needed to successfully defend yourself with a pistol.

This course is designed expressly for the armed citizen who carries a concealed handgun, or the plain clothes or off-duty police officer. The goal is to develop the knowledge, skills, and mindset necessary to carry and use a concealed pistol ethically, responsibly, and with confidence.

Topics include:

  • Mental awareness and techniques for gaining advantage in life-threatening confrontations
  • Proper defensive mindset and personal tactics
  • Concealing a pistol properly and clothing considerations
  • Effective gun handling techniques designed to work under stress
  • Rapid presentation from concealed carry during an attack (and safely concealing it)
  • High speed accuracy at close ranges and precision shooting at mid ranges
  • Rapidly and reliably fixing pistol malfunctions and reloading techniques
  • Shooting effectively with one hand, with either hand
  • Tactical anatomy
  • Proper skill development practices

Class prerequisites: Completion of a state Handgun Carry Permit class or another comparative pistol shooting class. You should also have some experience safely handling, drawing and holstering a pistol. If you have questions about suitability of the course, please email us at info@CitizensSafety.com or text us at 615-801-8007.

Students who complete the course will receive a completion certificate.

What you will need to take the course:

  • A quality pistol recommend minimum of 9mm or .38 Special. We recommend full or compact sized guns for this class. Sub-compact guns are much harder to shoot all day. A second gun like the first one is a good idea in case the first one breaks
  • A quality strong side hip or appendix holster – either form fitted leather or kydex, the holster must completely cover the trigger guard, allow a full firing grip with the gun in the holster and remain open while the gun is drawn. PLEASE NO flimsy nylon or cloth holsters
  • A quality Belt, designed to securely attach the holster to the belt and support the weight of a fully loaded pistol
  • The ammo count for the course will be emailed to students well before the course.
  • 3 magazines or speed loaders with 2 appropriate pouches for the spare magazines
  • Clothing appropriate for concealing a firearm (vest, jacket, windbreaker, over-shirt, polo shirt, etc). Holsters must be worn concealed.
  • Eye protection and hearing protection (we recommend electronic) and a ball cap or brimmed hat to keep brass from going behind your eye protection.
  • Rain gear (we train rain or shine), bug dope, and sun screen
  • A cooler with soft drinks, water, snacks and lunch will be needed, for lunch on site. We will not be leaving the range for lunch.

You can bring a revolver to this course, but we strongly recommend against it as they tend not to last a full day of intensive shooting.

If you need help putting the above items together please contact us before the class. Info@CitizensSafety.com

Your primary instructor will be Aqil Qadir, assisted by Tiffany Johnson.
