Handgun Training and Handgun Courses
Many handgun owners are either unknowingly incompetent with a handgun or aware improvement in safety and shooting are needed.
A surprising statistic is less than 20% of shots fired by law enforcement during a shootout hit their intended target. You are never going to be more than fifty percent as good in a shootout as your best day at the range. What does that tell you about training necessity and practice habits? Law enforcement officers normally qualify on shooting proficiency twice a year and the NRA practice standard is a minimum of once a month.
The majority of handgun accidents are attributed to improper handling and lack of knowledge of handguns and handgun safety. We teach safety first in all our courses, as it is the most important responsibility in owning a handgun and shooting.
Our classes are limited in size so that each student receives individual attention and direction. We teach classes the right way; no cutting corners or skipping over portions of the courses. Our NRA and LTC classes are subject to being audited by either NRA or Texas Department of Public Safety and we teach them according to the guidelines and even add additional handgun training content not required. You are not just a number when you take one of our courses and we strive to give you more training than expected.
Train Before Obtaining Your License to Carry
The Texas LTC Course is not a handgun training course and only includes some minimal handgun safety instruction. It is a course to teach the laws of Texas relating to concealed carry and where you can carry a concealed handgun. There is not a pre-training requirement but the State of Texas expects students to know how to operate their handgun and to be able to shoot with a degree of accuracy when they sign up for the LTC course. If you lack gun handling competency then the Beginner Pistol, or NRA Basics to Pistol Shooting Class are excellent in pre-paring a student for the Texas LTC course. We also offer a combination Handgun Shooting Training Class and LTC Class where you can get the fundamentals training and LTC Class in one day.
What’s Your Handgun Skill Level?
1. Unknowingly incompetent
Handgun owners that never take any handgun courses, rarely practice or never practice shooting, don’t understand handgun safety, don’t know how to shoot properly, and often get innocent people killed in a life and death encounter with a criminal.
2. Aware improvement needed
Handgun owners that have limited knowledge of handguns and do practice but lack the proper safety procedures, can not shoot as accurately as they would like, and don’t know what they are doing wrong or how to improve.
3. Know they are competent
Those handgun owners that take training courses to improve their skills. They practice regularly, understand and practice safe handling of handguns, understand the principals for accurate shooting, know how to rapidly clear handgun malfunctions, know how to properly maintain a handgun, how to properly store a handgun, and how to properly store ammunition.
4. Subconsciously competent
Those handgun owners that know safe handling of firearms, pursue continued training, practice routinely, can shoot with precision, can clear handgun malfunctions in seconds by instinct, know how to shoot while moving, and know how to produce a handgun from concealed carry and fire two rapid shots accurately. Almost everything they do with a handgun is practiced until they can react from instinct if ever involved in a shootout.
