Defensive Handgun – II : $120.00 (Intermediate)
In this 4 hour class held on the range we continue to improve on the skills learned in the basic class. We learn how to properly and safely draw from a holster, tactical and emergency reloading, malfunction recovery (immediate action drills). We incorporate movement to cover (“get off the X”) “after action” movement drills, out of position and barricade shooting, controlled pair shooting, multiple target engagement, additional one hand and off hand shooting, etc. We shoot between 100 -150 rounds.
We keep our Intermediate classes to about 4 hours – they always run over. After about 4 hours in the sun and wind I find most people get tired and their learning ability, shooting skills and safety degrades.
Class Fee: $120.00
