Our Handgun level 2 courses focus on everyday carry either from concealment or open carry.
Everyday carry (EDC); Designed for concealed carry defensive shooting techniques, this course challenges students to apply fundamental manipulations of handguns; i.e., loading, unloading, reloading, and malfunctions. Defensive shooting drills include after actions, and cognitive processing under stress.
Close combat and ground fighting; Statistically speaking, most defensive shoots are within 3-7 yards, are extremely fast paced, and extremely violent. This course has a classroom portion of training that mimics real altercations, challenges the 21 ft rule, and includes defensive tactics covering open hand, knife, and firearms. We highlight the importance of weapon retention and weapon access in the classroom portion of training. The range portion covers the practical applications of these skills.
Handgun Vehicle Operations; Weapon access inside a vehicle is widely over looked and under-trained. This course covers defensive tactics in and around vehicles, for when all other defensive techniques have failed.
Close Quarter Battle 2; Taking what we have learned from the home defense course, we now begin walking through our homes or public buildings. Students will leave with the defensive/offensive live fire practical skills needed to enter into or defend rooms and hallways.
