It's common for those who purchase a pistol for self defense to take a Basic Pistol Class to learn how to operate it, and a Concealed Carry Class in order to legally carry it. While that is good, taking a class that actually teaches you HOW to use the pistol to defend your life is extremely important.
Our Real World Self Defense Pistol Skills class is not about 'target' shooting, and it's not about using fasht 'tactical' techniques. This class teaches about the realities of self defense with a firearm, to include the psycholoical and physiological stresses that are part of such incidents.
With hands on coaching, you will train in context, learning new skills, to include Shooting Under Stress, Counter Ambush, Weapon Disarms, and more!
