Firearms Training & Classes

Advanced Pistol Skills and Firing Techniques is the next and final step in our basic handgun fundamental training series. Graduates of the Basic Firearms Course or CCW are invited to participate in this next series of drills that include: a dry fire warm up, a static line warm up, shooting on the move, and much more. This program introduces and reinforces the fundamentals of tactical shooting and weapons handling skills under stress. The foundation is a solid understanding of basic marksmanship and weapons handling/manipulation, but tactical shooting is much more dynamic than static range training and more opposition focused than competition shooting. Speed, movement, stress, and accuracy are emphasized to create success on demand.



Students must be 18 years of age or older and must have successfully completed our Basic Firearms Handgun Course before taking this next level course.

Students will be required to demonstrate basic firearms safety, marksmanship, and competence in loading and unloading a firearm. The course is a total of 3 hours. The first hour includes a refresher, safety briefing, and range-rules briefing. From there, you will transition to 2 hours of defensive tactics training and live-fire drills.
