This course is the foundation of armed self-defense training. Students will work hands-on doing dry-fire drills in the classroom followed by live-fire drills at the range. From stance to grip to physical shooting technique, the class will help students to get their minds and bodies to work with their guns instead of against them during high stress situations. Whether students are looking to train on the specifics of getting defensive-accurate hits or building muscle memory skills for rapid acquisition and engagement of targets in a real-world scenario, this course will set the groundwork for them to become well-trained gun owners.
