Training Courses

Tactical Pistol

The goal of Tactical Pistol is to provide both new and experienced shooters with the attitude, knowledge and skill necessary to operate the pistol safely, efficiently and accurately. This course focuses on marksmanship fundamentals, drawing from the holster and the combat mindset.

This course will provide new shooters with the basic knowledge and skill needed to shoot in IDPA, IPSC or USPSA matches. Experienced shooters will have an opportunity to revisit the fundamentals, sharpen their skills and improve their speed and dexterity.

We will begin to develop the mindset and skill necessary to safely and properly use a pistol for sport and defense, beginning the journey toward Unconscious Competence (UC) with the pistol.
