Our Defensive Handgun Course is designed to educate the students about the handguns that are best for personal defense. There will be some time on the range and in the classroom. We will go over the draw stroke, moving and shooting, the plausibility principle, and the balance of speed and precision. We will also cover Defensive Accuracy, Lateral Motion, the Critical Incident Reload, Volume of Fire, and Realistic Training for Target Engagement. No experience is necessary. Class size is limited.
