 Defensive Handgun 1 is the first class in a three class series. The second class in the series (Defensive Handgun II) will continue with BSA drills and movement, but will also move forward into tactics and vehicles. Tactics discussions will not just deal with movement in different directions, but how and when to move. Vehicles will include (but not be limited to) how to shoot from inside and outside of vehicles, shooting through vehicle glass, and taking passengers out of your line of fire.

   Defensive Handgun III will continue in the same manor but will incorporate Vehicle and Low Light Level tactics and shooting. These classes are designed to build on each other and while we prefer you take them from us in order, we realize everyone has different levels of training and experience. Contact us and each individual will be handled accordingly.
