Deploying your defensive firearm in a timely manner is an essential part of the concealed carry lifestyle, and a fast draw from the holster helps you win at just about any practical pistol match you care to mention. Both of these have one thing in common: The latest and greatest hand-blaster and all the firepower in the world are useless if you can’t get your gun out when you need it is needed. 

Learning a smooth and efficient draw is a daunting task if you’re doing it all by yourself. On top of all of this, holster manufacturers sell their holsters on the basis of comfort, not speed or ease of use. A comfortable holster is great, but a comfortable holster that gets in the way of you getting your gun in the fight is a dangerous thing to carry on your waist. 

This class is designed to improve your draw, no matter if you’re an experienced firearms owner who carries a pistol on a daily basis or someone who is new to the concealed carry lifestyle.
