Description

Carrying a firearm carries a huge responsibility and we feel the better trained you are the safer you will be and the general public. People misuse their defensive firearms regularly either drawing to soon, shooting when they shouldn’t and risking public safety or just being irresponsible.

Our courses are designed to teach you to become very proficient with your decision making and with your firearms. If you follow our courses you could reduce your chances of ever needing to draw your firearm to a very small percentage.

This course was designed to help current CHL holders develop their skills on carrying and using a firearm in a defensive manner.

This course will cover the following:

  • Awareness Levels (White, Yellow, Red & Black)
  • OODA Loop
  • Tactics vs. Strategy
  • Clearing Malfunctions In a Defensive Situation
  • Concealing A Defensive Firearm
  • Cover & Concealment Definition
  • De-Escalation Tactics
  • Defensive Accuracy
  • Defensive Distances
  • Engaging Multiple Targets
  • Flash Sight / Front Sight Focus
  • Holsters
  • Holster Drawing Techniques
  • Multiple Shots on 1 Target
  • Multiple Shooting Positions (Sitting, Standing, Moving, Squatting and Kneeling)
  • One Hand Shooting
  • Physical Reactions to a defensive shooting (during & after)
  • Point Shooting
  • Quick Target Acquisition
  • Reloading Techniques for defensive purposes
  • Shooting From Cover & Concealment
  • Situational Awareness
