This class is designed and intended for graduates of DSF Level 1. It takes the skills learned in DSF L1 to the next level with more movement, more threats, and more great shooting opportunities and experiences!! 😎

You’ll learn safety & training goals, Concepts of Counter-Ambush Training and Combat-Focused Shooting, and Practical Shooting Skills to Survive a Critical Dynamic Incident. 

DSF Level 2 revisits the core shooting drills of DSF Level 1, but DSF Level 2 revolves primarily around the range and live fire training.
