Defensive Handgun Fundamentals

Go beyond the required concealed carry, or ccw, certification course and develop true defensive shooting skills. Our Defensive Handgun Fundamentals course is the big piece that is not covered during the concealed carry permit certification courses. In this course, we build defensive shooting skills in context of an ambush-style attack in a public environment. Presentation from the holster, defensive shooting concepts, and other skills are covered during this live-fire course on the range.

This course is offered as both one and two full days of intense training, teaching and practice on the range.

Some of the topics we cover:

  • Fundamentals of Defensive Shooting & Intuitive Skill Development
  • Defensive Accuracy
  • Lateral Movement
  • True Assessment
  • Speed vs Precision and How they Relate to One Another
  • Reloading During an Emergency
  • Realistic Training for Multiple Target Engagement
  • Understanding the Body’s Natural Reactions During an Ambush-Style Attack
  • One Handed & Weak Handed Shooting
  • Clearing Malfunctions

This defensive handgun training course is all about quickly developing fundamental skills that can be applied during a worst-case ambush-style defensive shooting situation while concealed carrying.

Students will typically fire between 4-500 rounds during a 1-day course or 900-1000 over a two day course.

Open to:
General Public / Law Enforcement / Military / Private Security

Course Eligibility
While we do not have prerequisites on this course,  it is best to be somewhat comfortable with your handgun. If you are just starting out, our Introduction to Defensive Handgun course or private training sessions are better options.
