This class is intended for intermediate level shooters who want to learn the skills to utilize their pistol caliber carbine in a defensive shooting situation. Advanced level shooters will find this class to be an excellent review of their existing skills & experience new drills and techniques. This class is intended to instill in students the mindset and skills to allow them to use their carbine as a defensive tool in a deadly force encounter. Students will come away from this class with a better understanding of their PCC, and a higher level of confidence in their ability to effectively operate and wield it.

It is encouraged to run this class with the gear you would normally have in home defense or self defense situation. LE are encouraged to run this class in your duty gear.
