2 Day Pistol - Progressive Defense

2 Day Pistol - Progressive Defense

This course is designed to take shooters to the next level. Through lots of one-on-one instructions and drills applicable to all levels, you will be pushed to grow whether you are a brand new shooter or have more experience under your belt. Progressive: we will start with the fundamentals on day one making sure everyone is starting with a strong foundation of marksmanship and build up from there one block upon another, completing a comprehensive course of instruction. Defense: this is not just a marksmanship course, this is about fighting with your pistol. It’s about solving problems and survival. Since sometimes survival requires being fast and accurate, performance shooting style drills will be worked into the two days, but that mindset and tactics will be the purpose of everything we do.

We recommend the following:

-Your everyday carry solution (holster/pistol/spare mag carry solution). We recommend this so that you can get instruction and reps specific to the gear you would be using in a real world situation. If your carry gun is insufficient to run in a class, or your carry setup isn’t comfortable enough to wear all day it might be worth considering an upgrade. Feel free to contact us if you need recommendations. If you prefer to run a setup different from your EDC that is also acceptable however.
