Course Description:
This module focuses on technique and the development of the defensive mindset and is for people seeking additional training and skills to accompany their concealed firearm permits. Therefore, all topics involve working from your holster.
    
Those who choose to carry outside the home NEED to know these techniques.  Topics include correct draw from strong side belt holster (method as taught by most reputable shooting academies and Law Enforcement), drawing from concealment, speed reloads during live fire, clearing malfunctions during live fire, defensive pistol accuracy, shooting around cover, alternate shooting positions, shooting while moving, multiple target engagement, point shooting and more.

    Students should expect to shoot approximately 150 - 200 rounds of ammunition. The defensive pistol modules are objective based.  Do not be discouraged if you do not have all the gear needed for this class. We are happy to provide you equipment on a limited basis and help you select and train with the best equipment suited for your person and lifestyle.

     This class covers drills taught in various NRA classes including personal protection in the home, personal protection outside the home, and defensive pistol. This is NOT an NRA class so there is no classroom or powerpoint, nor do the students earn an NRA certificate. We have selected these drills based on our experience of what a person with a License to Carry needs to know.


Whether you are just about to get your License to Carry or have been a permit holder for a decade, this class is for you.
