1-Day Tactical Pistol Course

  • This is a  1-day course that focuses on the use and practical application of the pistol during a high intensity armed confrontation.  Emphasis will be placed on the 7 Fundamentals of tactical pistol shooting and the safe and proper use of your firearm under stress.

    First….there is no such thing as “advanced shooting”.  Advanced shooting is being able to apply all of the 7 fundamentals under stress….period.  Solid fundamentals trained to muscle memory will give you the ability to focus more on the situation at hand.  A solid base of fundamentals provides the ability for marksmanship cold and on demand in combat shooting. This is why US Special Operations Forces training  focuses on the fundamentals for this reason.  Once the fundamentals are mastered and a solid foundation is built, more skills can be learned.

    • The proper mindset

    • Understanding the OODA and the Color Code of Awareness

    • The 7 Fundamentals of combat marksmanship
