Dave Spaulding's 
Advanced Covert Pistol + Night Shoot
(2 Days, 600 Rounds + Night Shoot)

October 12-13, 2019 - $500.00

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.

This is an intense, four-day, 40-hour immersion course in the “rules of engagement” for armed law-abiding private citizens.  The course emphasizes legal issues, tactical issues, and aftermath management. Topics will include interacting with suspects, witnesses, responding police officers, threat recognition and mind-set, and the management of the social and psychological aftermath of having to use lethal force in defense of self or others.  Also covered is preparing beforehand for legal repercussions and minimizing your exposure to them. Situations in the home, at the place of business, or “on the street” will all be covered.  Range work will include instruction in the use of the defensive handgun under extreme stress. Drawing from concealment, two-handed stances, shooting from cover, one-handed stances with either hand, speed reloading, and more are taught with an overall emphasis on fast, accurate shot placement. The course will culminate with a written examination covering the classroom topics and a police-style handgun qualification course. This course is a blending of MAG 20 / Classroom and MAG 20 / Live Fire but is taught over 4 – 5 days.

Kinetic Combat Pistol
(2 Days, 800 Rounds)

February 29-March 1, 2020

($450.00 + $50.00 Range Fee)
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.
