This one day range course builds upon the skills you've developed in our handgun fundamentals class.  This course will teach you how to safely use a handgun holster for sports shooting, competition, or work. 

In this course, students will learn how to draw safely and re-holster a pistol, perform tactical emergency, speed reloads, clear stoppages and malfunctions. Additionally, students will also learn about cover and concealment and what they're used for.
Our progressive teaching methodology allows you to learn all these new skills in a relaxed and step-by-step fashion. To provide you with the highest level of attention, we limit class size to a maximum of 6 students per instructor.
