Shooting while Moving

Don’t be fooled by the term “moving” – this section is all about maintaining accuracy while you move. Pistol Defense Fundamentals explores techniques for keeping your sights on target while moving.

Tactical Reloading

Pistol Defense Fundamentals explores the technique of performing reloads that minimize the time your eyes are off the threat so you can maintain awareness of your surroundings.

First Shot Accuracy

In a self-defense situation, every shot counts – especially your first shot. Pistol Defense Fundamentals emphasizes the importance of achieving first-shot accuracy. You’ll refine your marksmanship skills, focusing on proper sight alignment, stance, grip, and trigger control.

Engaging Multiple Threats
