Advanced Covert Pistol + Night Shoot
(2 Days, 600 Rounds + Night Shoot)

October 12-13, 2019 - $500.00

($450.00 + $50.00 Range Fee)
This “stand alone” course is a good choice for the person who has just received their CPL/CCW permit and wants to take their preparedness to the next level or the person who carries a gun regularly (armed citizen/off-duty cop) concealed and needs to enhance their personal security skills. That said, it is NOT A BASIC CCW COURSE! In many states, the basic CCW certification course is about safety while this course is about FIGHTING with a pistol. The course covers equipment selection, concealment locations, proper weapon selection, lifestyle commitments, wound ballistics, combative mindset, garment removal techniques and “running” a combative handgun. The live fire segment covers the essentials of combative pistolcraft, the combative pistol draw, movement, seated shooting and other related techniques. The course is designed to make you rethink your covert strategies.

Kinetic Combat Pistol
(2 Days, 800 Rounds)

February 29-March 1, 2020

This course is for the shooter who has a solid base of essential skills but now must learn how to use them in the pandemonium of armed conflict. It will focus on “movement with purpose” as history has shown combatants seldom stand still when under fire. Movement is more than just short lateral steps as many demonstrate, it is moving explosively and dynamically, planting quickly and shooting accurately to stop the threat. Lateral, diagonal, forward and rearward movement will be demonstrated and drilled. Disengagement and movement in an around innocent people, who are there by happenstance alone, will be emphasized. Strong emphasis will also be placed on being able to stop quickly, shoot accurately and instantly move again. This is a physical course of instruction, but one that will help you PREVAIL in a pistol fight.

​April 6-7, 2019 - $500.00

​($450.00 + $50.00 Range Fee)
Its not the person with the fastest draw or can shoot the tightest groups that will win a gunfight. It’s the person with a solid set of essential skills and the ability to recognize a rapidly unfolding situation and adapt accordingly. This course will review essential combat shooting skills and will then add skills that are not normally found in a basic square range course. Use of cover, unconventional shooting positions, multiple target engagement, one hand shooting/manipulation and decision making/cognition drills skills will be emphasized. Adaptation is the key to prevailing in a situation where your life is on the line and this course will help bolster those skills.
