Advanced Handgun Course

Don’t let the word “advanced” scare you. This course is suitable for both new and experienced shooters. In fact, new shooters usually experience faster results as they have fewer "bad habits" to overcome.

The course takes a students shooting ability to the next level, and better prepares students for real world shooting situations by incorporating outside factors such as shooting from different positions, engaging multiple targets, movement, and stress. When most people go to the range to practice, they are limited to shooting at one target while standing still. It is proven that the way you practice is the way you will "do" in real life, and if you plan for only one attacker or if you only practice standing still, you will be at a disadvantage in real life. This class not only teaches what to do, it better prepares students by letting them experience how outside factors affect their shooting ability and accuracy.

The course is about 7 hours long (depending on class size, also not including the luch break) and is almost entirely spent on the range. It meets at 9:30am and will end around 6pm.

Students are required to bring an approved handgun, at least 3 extra magazine or speed-load devices, 250 rounds of ammunition, outside the pants holster, eye & ear protection, and a hat with a brim (like a baseball cap). Handgun rentals are available for an additional cost. Rentals include the use of a handgun, extra magazines, holster, all ammunition, and eye & ear protection.

To ensure a lot of quality one on one time with an instructor, this class is limited to a max of 11 students and will have at least 2 instructors.

NOTE: The Home & Personal Defense course is a prerequisite to this class. Make sure you take our Home & Personal Defense course BEFORE this class.
