"Defensive Pistol” trains for real-world, personal shooting encounters. It takes the solid fundamentals learned in the "Tactical Pistol Foundation" course and applies those principals and skills in the context of self-defense. This class consists of about 2 hours of classroom time, followed by 4 to 5 hours of range time. Classroom topics include safety, physiology-based combat accuracy, discussions of actual self-defense footage, shoot / no shoot decision-making, and after-action routines. Range time emphasizes applying the students’ foundational pistol skills to real world self-defense tactics. Students will gain experience using many different kinds of cover, improvised shooting positions, open-air tactics, basic tactical movement, and candid discussions about the difference between “range theory” and “real world”. Defensive Pistol is a must for anyone serious about carrying a gun in public for protection. This class has a prerequisite of having taken and passed the Tactical Pistol Foundation course, the student has a solid-body holster with at least 2 spare magazines, and 300 rounds of ammo for their pistol.

CCW2 - Defensive Pistol Foundation is a fundamentals-intensive course. It takes students who are still developing their marksmanship and gun handling skills – or who want to reinforce existing skills - and lays the groundwork needed to begin taking more advanced and specialized training. It is perfect for students who have taken a safety course or CCW course, and are ready to learn how to move, draw, and apply self-defense based techniques. Topics include the seven fundamentals of marksmanship, reloading, malfunction clearing, drawing, movement, engaging multiple targets at various distances, and more. Each topic is covered with a concrete emphasis on safety at every step, with attention drawn to specific safety concerns and pitfalls. Class consists of about 45 minutes of classroom time, and 4 to 5 hours of range time. In this class, you will learn to run your gun. While there are no prerequisites, it is expected that students are comfortable operating their gun, have a solid safety mentality, and have appropriate, safe, solid-body holsters and at least two spare magazines. It is recommended (but not required) that a student has taken either a Pistol Safety Class or a CCW class before attending this class. Students will leave this course not only better and safer marksmen and women, but equipped with simple drills they can take to their own range-practice to continue honing the principals they learned.
