Advanced Pistol Defense

Advanced Pistol Defense is a 2-day defensive pistol class where one-handed shooting skills, mastery of malfunctions, and achieving first-shot accuracy elevate your pistol confidence.

Advanced Pistol Defense covers topics that apply to people with moderate experience.

Movement & Use of Cover

Real-world encounters are rarely stationary. During Advanced Pistol Defense, you will practice shooting accurately while moving and develop the skills to maintain accuracy and control while on the move.

One Handed Shooting

In Advanced Pistol Defense, you’ll learn the intricacies of one-handed pistol control. You’ll learn advanced techniques for recoil management, target acquisition, and rapid-fire with just one hand.

Overcoming Malfunctions

Malfunctions happen, even to the best shooters. Advanced Pistol Defense will take your pistol skills to the next level by equipping you with proven techniques to clear common malfunctions under stress.
