The Holster Draw Essentials Course is for you if you have completed an intro or beginner course and you are now ready to move forward with how to draw from a holster and become more familiar with your equipment, or if you’re more experienced and you’d like a quick, half-day tune-up on your draw. Our Holster Draw Course focuses on gaining familiarity with your equipment and efficiency in getting first round hits on your target. This course will elevate the understanding of firearm manipulation from the holster, incorporating combat accuracy and personal protection from a defensive standpoint.  This program is the next critical step in developing skills with a handgun when carrying in a holster. Draw from the hip will be broken down into each step of the five-step draw, then practiced until the draw becomes safe and seamless.
