What to Expect In Our Core Defensive Pistol Class

Designed to pick up where our CCW class leaves off, this intense 8 hour period of instruction will test your mind as well as your skills as you learn to solve dynamic problems under stress. Multiple threats, use of cover, more Balance of Speed and Precision drills, and shooting under stress, are just some of the items covered. Finish the day off with basic trauma care practicals that can be used in the unfortunate event that you, or a loved one, suffers a critical injury during a self defense event.
