Course ​Description::
With ​a ​hard ​focus ​on ​mindset, ​marksmanship ​and ​manipulation, ​our ​Two-Day ​Fundamental ​Handgun ​package ​sets ​out ​to ​develop ​handgun ​skills ​from ​the ​bottom-up ​and ​culminate ​with ​the ​practical ​application ​of ​a ​handgun ​in ​defense ​of ​yourself ​or ​others. ​Taking ​a ​no-nonsense ​look ​at ​what ​goes ​into ​being ​a ​solid ​handgun ​shooter, ​this ​course ​focuses ​on ​establishing ​a ​high ​level ​of ​competency ​and ​honing ​the ​skills ​relevant ​to ​all ​practical ​uses ​of ​a ​handgun. ​With ​the ​tenets ​of ​safety, ​proficiency ​and ​readiness ​always ​in ​mind, ​this ​course ​seeks ​to ​build ​students ​into ​great ​handgun ​shooters ​– ​regardless ​of ​their ​background ​or ​experience ​level.

The ​focus ​of ​Day ​One ​is ​on ​the ​gun ​- ​we ​will ​take ​a ​very ​in-depth ​look ​at ​the ​fundamentals; ​much ​more ​critically ​than ​what ​is ​often ​addressed ​in ​other ​training ​courses. ​Day ​Two ​will ​focus ​on ​the ​shooter ​- ​integrating ​handgun ​skills ​with ​movement, ​working ​with ​the ​environment ​around ​us ​and ​an ​accelerated ​look ​at ​manipulation. ​Expect ​the ​fundamentals ​to ​be ​stressed ​throughout ​- ​a ​premium ​is ​put ​on ​accuracy, ​never ​to ​be ​neglected ​in ​favor ​of ​speed.

While ​this ​course ​is ​intended ​for ​novice-level ​shooters, ​the ​concepts ​and ​drills ​are ​often ​a ​challenge ​for ​shooters ​of ​all ​experience ​levels. ​Building ​upon ​the ​students ​current ​ability, ​Fundamental ​Handgun ​is ​designed ​to ​introduce ​new ​concepts ​to ​the ​student, ​refining ​their ​existing ​skill ​set ​and ​push ​them ​to ​the ​next ​level ​of ​mastery ​of ​the ​weapon. ​If ​possible, ​it ​is ​highly ​preferred ​that ​students ​shoot ​the ​second ​day ​of ​this ​class ​with ​their ​daily ​CCW ​/ ​Duty ​equipment.
