Though it’s important to practice at farther distances, FBI statistics bring gunfighting at much closer distances. Approximately 90% of gunfights occur at contact within 15 feet, and approximately 40% of those were in contact at just 3 feet. This course focuses on quickly clearing your holster and effectively delivering combat effective hits using alternate sighting methods and getting off the line of attack at those close distances.

Prerequisites: Pistol 1 or equivalent course from a reputable instructor.
