Essential Handgun Skills Instruction
If you are new to the world of handguns, looking to get your “Concealed Handgun License” (CHL), improve your shooting ability and knowledge, the classes offered here will help you do that. I do NOT provide CHL classes. I do teach you what you should know before you go to class or before you actually carry your handgun. Your CHL class will not provide handgun instruction. It only covers the law and tests if you can send bullets downrange.
My classes are broken down into 4 basic levels of teaching from new shooters to the more advanced. “Advanced skills are the basics mastered.” In these classes we call the basics “essentials”. These are the essential skills you will need to shoot and shoot well with proper technique and understanding. In more advanced courses you will learn how to apply the essentials in dynamic self defense situations while moving and actively engaging targets.
Learning the fundamentals of solid pistol handling is the basis for growth skills competency. The class will concentrate on helping new or inexperienced people who want to learn the basics of shooting a handgun. If you are absolutely new to shooting, this is for you.
LEVEL I: Essential Defense Pistol Skills
Learning the fundamentals of solid defensive pistol handling is the basis for growth skills competency. The class will concentrate on the skills everyone needs to master to draw and shoot a handgun with confidence in pressure situations.
LEVEL II: Essential Defense Pistol Skills
Learning the fundamentals of solid defensive pistol handling is the basis for skills competency. The class will reinforce those skills from Level 1 and build on those Essentials. Quickly get on target, action reloading, malfunction clearing.
LEVEL III: Advanced Pistol Skills
Requires completion of Level II or solid proof of essential skills. Instruction will center around fast moving skills, shooting and reloading on the move, use of barriers and avoiding innocent hostages. This is also a prep for shooting competitively.
