Basic/Introduction to Handguns – Level 3

Have you taken the Basic Handgun classes up to level 2?  Do you want to expand you self-defense skills and learn about real-life deadly force encounters, and how to train for them?  Then this is the class for you.

Level three course will refresh the marksmanship skills taught in level 1, 1.5 and build on the self-defense skills taught in level 2.  The emphasis of this course is shooting and moving and effectively shooting from cover.  The student in this course will learn the specific handgun skills needed to put bullets on the target while shooting from various types of cover you might commonly find in the environment.  Each highly trained instructor in this course has been in a real-life deadly force encounter and will be there to speak to their experiences and lessons learned.  You will be getting first-hand information from people who have been there, done that, and survived to tell the story.
