The Advanced Pistol Training Course is an important and necessary part of your pistol training.  Normal public ranges, with stationary targets, stationary shooters and range operation restrictions do not allow the public to practice realistic deadly force defensive encounter tactics and advanced tactical shooting techniques.

This training will allow students to work closely and unencumbered with tactical instructors in developing their skills in advanced shooting tactics.

Orientation and discussion of the positive mindset and the importance of working on essential pistol skills begin the class.  During live fire training, the instructors work with students to achieve an advanced level of skills related to stance, pistol grip and drawing from the holster, and target acquisition. 

Subsequent to this motor skill training, the class will continue with live fire training which includes the following:

Course objectives are:
