Defensive Shooting Fundamentals

Course Description

This training course is for law-abiding adult citizens, as defined by applicable federal, state, or local law. This advanced course teaches you the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to the safe and efficient use of a handgun for the protection of self and family. Defensive Shooting Fundamentals will guide you through the steps you’ll need to take to go from just sending rounds downrange to actually training in specific, tested methods of armed self-defense. From stance to grip to physical shooting technique, Defensive Shooting Fundamentals will help you hone the edge on your inner warrior expert. You’ll get your body working with your gun instead of against it, you’ll learn which intuitive skills work best with what your body will naturally do while under stress in a combat situation, and you’ll learn to apply this information simply and effectively.  This course is much more than just a routine shooting course. It is important that participants have sufficient maturity and life experiences to be able to assess various situations and make mature decisions.

Students must be experienced shooters able to show mastery of the basic skills of safe gun handling, shooting a good group, and drawing from a concealed holster.
