Dynamic Handgun 1: $150.00

This course will start down the path of training tactics for self defense with a handgun.  A life and death encounter is different than punching holes in paper on the practice range.  You need to train like you fight and fight like you train. 

  1. Drawing from Concealment
  2. Combat Breathing
  3. Moving off the X
  4. Commands during an encounter
  5. Use of cover and concealment
  6. Different shooting positions
  7. Reloads
  8. Malfunction Drills

We end this course with scenario based shooting drill.  It should add some fun and stress to the exercise. 

You will need a good service pistol in proper working condition.  200 Rounds of factory bought ammo (no reloads for insurance reasons).  You also need a good strong side holster and belt.  Eye and ear protection is mandatory. A ball cap is highly recommended.

Prerequisites for this course are my basic pistol course or a comparable course from another instructor.  I will also admit a student that has a decent amount of shooting experience.  My main concern is that we follow the 4 rules of gun safety.  If you don't know the 4 rules of gun safety then you need to take a basic course.
