Training – Firearms Instruction

Our courses use a minimum of two instructors; more are added as course size dictates. However, keeping class sizes to a minimum ensures a more personalized training environment for each student and allows the instructors to identify problems and offer solutions to each student on an individual basis.

Our courses will teach the listed course objectives, but will also mandate that each student demonstrate the ability to deliver accurate shots on target.

PLEASE NOTE: Course lengths may vary and can easily be customized to meet client training requirements. The number of rounds fired in each program will also be dictated by client training requirements.

Handgun 1

This course will lay the groundwork and foundation that will allow the shooter/student to move on to more advanced techniques in later instruction. Students will learn how to operate their weapons with maximum efficiency, in a life threatening environment, while focusing on speed and accuracy. Students will complete a final test to measure performance.

Skills covered may include:

  • Stance
  • Grip
  • Drawing of pistol
  • Presentation to target
  • Use of sights
  • Trigger control and trigger reset
  • Reloading
  • Basic movement
  • Malfunctions

Handgun 2

This is a more advanced program intended to build on the skills acquired in the basic course. Each student’s skill-sets will be tested at the beginning of the course and followed-up with a re-test upon completion of the course to measure improvement.

The element of stress will be added to the environment in an effort to drive the student’s abilities beyond existing capabilities.

This course will include, but not necessarily be limited to:

  • Shooting while moving
  • Target identification (shoot/no-shoot drills)
  • Multiple shoot/no-shoot targets
  • Shooting from awkward positions
  • Shooting at distant targets
  • Shooting with speed and accuracy
  • Multiple stress reloading drills
  • Malfunction clearing

Active Shooter Program

Students will be shown techniques that will enable them to respond to an active-shooter situation involving hostages, innocent bystanders and one or more suspects and to do so effectively with resources at-hand.

Topics covered will include:

  • Rapid deployment
  • Breaching
  • Dynamic movement
  • Room entries
  • Target identification
  • Movement through unknown areas
  • Hostage problems & issues
