The Defensive Pistol 1 course is an intermediate pistol shooting course that builds on the introduction to defensive pistol course. Students will learn defensive shooting techniques that will likely be required in an actual self defense situation. While maintaining shooting fundamentals, students will be challenged with several shooting drills, injected malfunctions and movement techniques. You will not only learn the ‘how’ of defensive shooting, but the theory and the ‘why’ behind the skill.
