This is an intensive two-day course that covers the intermediate-level skills needed to successfully fight with a pistol.

This is an intensive two-day course learning intermediate-level skills 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.

This class is intended for true intermediate (or higher) level students. If you have not had formal training in how to work from a holster safely, this coursework may not be for you yet. There will be a skills assessment early on to determine whether or not the student has the requisite skills to participate safely in this course.

Topics covered in this course will include:

  • Engaging targets at very close ranges
  • Drawing and shooting one handed
  • Engaging animated threats
  • Shooting with a cognitive load
  • Understanding and using cover
  • Engaging targets beyond “normal” pistol ranges
  • Effective movement and shooting
  • Effective use of cover

You will need a good handgun, holster, belt, and magazine pouch, at least three magazines, a ball cap and concealment garment (vest, jacket, windbreaker, etc), and eye and ear protection. Expect to fire about 600 rounds of ammunition. Also bring a cooler with soft drinks, water, snacks. The range has a great barbecue restaurant inside. You can also buy lunch there.

Your instructors will be Ryan McCann, Aqil Qadir and Carson Baldree.
