Practical Handgun

Handguns are a popular defensive choice for many civilians and professionals due to their practicality and concealability.  But contrary to popular belief, handguns are one of the most difficult self-defense tools to master and require months or even years of practice.  This course is designed to equip students with essential skills required to survive a lethal force encounter, and to filter out unnecessary, heady information that the average shooter doesn’t need to know.  We have taken careful consideration to distil essential handgun knowledge and skills into smaller, easier to digest classes so our students can progress quicker and achieve a higher level of practical performance sooner.  Whether you are a new shooter, or an experienced handgun shooter; our small class sizes and carefully crafted training curriculum is designed to move at YOUR pace and comfort level and not at the pace of other students in the class.  Our goal as instructors is to challenge each student to be better than they were yesterday, not to be as good as the other students.  Our Practical Handgun series and creative live range training is sure to challenge and entertain shooters of all levels.  After completing our Practical Handgun series, students will be better prepared to defend themselves and their families regardless of the situation they may find themselves in.
