Defensive Pistol 2

This dynamic course is designed to build on those skills previously learned in Basic Pistol and Defensive Pistol 1. The information you will receive, and the course of fire you will take part in, will challenge and better prepare you for a real-life violent encounter.

We will go in-depth, with a sharp focus on mindset, situational awareness and an introduction to the “Sul position”, “combat” and “tactical” reloading techniques, effective use of cover, shooting from behind barricades, all using dry and live fire. You will acquire more advanced skills in firearm presentation from retention and body mechanics. Keeping your safety and the safety of those around you will be a top priority.

This course will only be offered to participants who have completed NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home course, or another qualifying holster course, and will be available evenings, after 5:00 pm. All live fire will be conducted inside the range, close to the backstop area.

This challenging course was created specifically for those in the civilian population who have a deep respect for firearms, and for our freedom to defend. You will not find a more intensive public training course outside of a military or law enforcement facility. This course was developed by former and active duty military, and experienced firearms instructors.

(Please note: Carrying a firearm for personal protection, or keeping a firearm in your home for home defense is not a guarantee of your safety. A violent encounter can happen suddenly and without warning. One cannot predict the body’s response to extreme duress and adrenaline overload. We make no claims that insure your ability to overcome, persevere and win in a violent attack. There is no substitute for your good judgement in any life-threatening situation.)
