2-DAY TACTICAL HANDGUN 401
PREREQUISITE COURSE: DEFENSE CARRY FUNDAMENTALS 201
The 2-Day Tactical Handgun course is an "ADVANCED", complete, all-inclusive 16-hour, live-fire shooting course and is fast paced and high-stress. This course is designed for those who possess an upper-level skill set with a thorough knowledge of handgun safety and tactical manipulation techniques and immediate action remedies for all types of firearm feedway stoppages or malfunctions. The student feels comfortable using a semi automatic firearm and has the necessary confidence in their firearm skills that would lend itself to a non hesitant, aggressive stance and action to work effectively and efficiently through a dynamic critical incident.
This course will take the student well beyond Oregon Revised Statute requirements for a Concealed Handgun License and far beyond the basic tactical manipulation techniques learned in the Defense Carry Fundamentals course, and into the advanced realm of tactical handgun shooting tactics where the balance between speed and accuracy are vital. You will be pushed to the limits of understanding and ability and will be forced to perform at the top of your game. During this 2-day course, candidates will design their own drill, include loadout, type of drill, skills worked, and run the drill using other candidates as assistants.
Students WILL have solid firearm skill set PRIOR to attending this course. Unconventional shooting positions including sitting, lying, kneeling, and crouching will be covered. Your goal is to progress through these varied scenarios pushing the envelope of what you think is possible, using a variety of concealment and cover configurations. You will also learn team room entry and techniques normally reserved for law enforcement. Advanced reduced-light training will also be covered. Did you now that approximately 70% of all shootings occur in low-light or reduced light conditions?
Participants must have an intimate working knowledge of ALL the firearms platforms and must have successfully completed a recognized firearms class that included general methods of instruction. THIS is not a beginner class. You will be tested at the beginning of class for your safe gun handling ability.
