Looking for a more advanced class? Defensive Pistol is a great choice!
A concealed pistol licensing class prepares firearms owners with the basic knowledge and ability to handle a handgun, but we encourage permit holders to take additional education to protect themselves and their families.
The fundamentals taught in Defensive Pistol class go beyond shooting in a firing range after the initial licensing instruction. The course provides an extra level of familiarity with the handgun and how to take it from a concealed position in self-defense.
We will start with how to remove the firearm from a variety of holsters and progress to comfortably drawing from under a shirt or jacket then progress to speed reloads, scanning surroundings for additional threats, use of cover, incorporating movement and immediate action drills.
Although those moves may seem easy, experienced gun owners know the actions become complex in a stressful scenario in which you are keeping loved ones safe.
Who may attend the Defensive Pistol Class?
*Anyone holding a valid Concealed Pistol License, or anyone who does not have a CPL but are well versed in the use of their pistol. This class is not for beginners, we teach and conduct advanced drills requiring a clear focus on safety and proficiency.
