All of our courses instruct to one very important criteria:
How to establish your own personal protection plan
Handling of firearms is dangerous.

We strictly enforce safety protocols in all of our classes

Basic Fundamental Handgun
The Beginning of Responsible Gun Ownership

If your reason for owning a gun is self-protection, you must train to that specificity. You can’t walk before you crawl, and you can’t run before you walk. During this basic level course, you will become competent and confident in the handling and use of a handgun as a means of self-defense. We will instruct you so not only will you understand how to manipulate the operation of a handgun, you will also develop an understanding of how your body mechanics, body posture, and state of mind affects shooting accuracy from the ground all the way up to your sight picture.

Course requirements: Eye and Ear safety equipment (recommend electronic hearing protection); 200 rounds of ammunition (yes, we will be shooting a lot.); At least two spare magazines. Comfortable clothing and footwear. The course can have some physical demands (not a time for sandals.) Bring a lunch or snacks and drinks (very short break time as we press.)
Additional Recommendations: If you have a ‘single stack’ gun, bring more than two spare magazines you will need them. The sun is a brutal thing, highly recommend you bring sunscreen, and a ball cap. Start drinking plenty of fluids the day before you come out!

Handgun Personal Defense
Nothing stands still in a confrontation

This intermediate level course is designed specifically to teach the student not only how to draw and fire a handgun from a holster, but also to teach the student the ability and confidence to carry the fight from just about any possible position. We instruct to the philosophy, “Space is your friend.” We will instruct you how to maintain accuracy while creating space between you and your attacker all the while moving to safety.

A firm understanding of the fundamentals of shooting is necessary before attending this class

Course requirements: OWB Holster (mandatory); Eye and Ear safety equipment (recommend electronic hearing protection,); 250 rounds of ammunition (yes, we will be shooting a lot.); At least two spare magazines, an “over shirt” of type for concealment. Comfortable clothing and footwear. The course can have some physical demands (not a time for sandals.) Bring a lunch or snacks and drinks (very short break time as we press.)
Additional Recommendations: If you have a ‘single stack’ gun, bring more than two spare magazines you will need them. The sun is a brutal thing, highly recommend you bring sunscreen, and a ball cap. Start drinking plenty of fluids the day before you come out!

Handgun, in Defense of Others
Critical decision making

Scenario: You are in a parking lot, a mall, or an office building and bad things start to happen. As the threat becomes more up-close and personal, you quickly decide to get away from the threat. YOU have trained to move, but your spouse and/or child is standing there staring at you.

Pop Quiz: Now what do you do?

This advanced level course builds upon the skills you have developed in the previous two courses and is centered on the critical decision making process necessary when you act in defense of others or in a multi-threat environment. This is a very challenging course as we teach more advanced skill sets of self-defense hand gunning. Our goal here is to make you think and act through a variety of critical discrimination shoot/ don’t shoot / and move scenarios.

Prerequisite: The student must have successfully completed our Basic and/or Intermediate course(s)

NOTE: This prerequisite can be waived by the senior instructor if you can demonstrate proper gun handling skills, safety awareness, and the ability to properly draw from a holster.

Specialized clinics - Practice makes perfect

From time to time we will offer small specific clinics on some of the techniques taught in the above classes. These are designed for the shooter to revisit skill sets they may have difficulty in achieving during their own personal protection training, or just to practice live fire what they normally not allowed to do on a range.
