This course will be crucial for someone who carries a handgun on a regular basis and wants to learn & reinforce new skills beyond the basic fundamentals.

Equipment Requirements: Semi-Automatic, center fire, defensive handgun (.380 to .45 caliber), 300 rounds of ammunition (minimum), ear protection (headphone style preferred), eye protection, a baseball style cap/hat, 3 magazines (or more), a magazine pouch and a strong side, belt/hip/outside the waistband style holster, and a light jacket/windbreaker that opens in the front.
Additionally, you may also wish to bring appropriate gear for the weather, gun cleaning supplies, lunch, snacks, etc or any other items that you may need.
1) “Pocket pistols” such as Kel-tecs and Ruger LCP’s are not suitable for this class. Students utilizing a handgun with a small capacity magazine may wish to bring additional magazines in order to keep pace.
2) Due to the numerous training incidents around the country involving Serpa Blackhawk holsters (with the push button release), we have established a policy that these holsters will no longer be allowed in our live fire classes.
