Advanced Defensive Pistol

The objective is for the students to learn how to use firearms to the best tactical advantage at expert levels. This fast paced course concentrates on surviving a deadly force encounter while armed with a handgun. During a brief assessment by instructor students are expected to show proficiency with basic handgun skills, safety and shooting drills.
