This one-day class focuses on drawing and firing from a concealed holster in situations where speed, accuracy, movement, and threat assessment could be lifesaving. Students will learn how to continue the fight if they are injured through challenging one-handed shooting and malfunction clearances. This class will be physically draining as it involves a lot of movement while shooting. Students must be experienced safe shooters and be pre-qualified to take this class for safety reasons.
Students need a full sized 9mm or greater caliber semi-automatic pistol, 350 rounds of factory loaded target ammunition, a belt mounted outside the waistband holster, a belt mounted two magazine holster, a concealment garment that fully covers the holstered pistol, electronic ear protection, and eye protection.
