Basic Defensive Pistol is for anyone wanting to learn about defensive shooting.

This class helps prepare you to use your pistol for home defence or personal protection. As we like to say, “There are no advanced techniques, only advanced applications of the basics.” This is the class that will give you those basics.

Basic Defensive Pistol goes beyond simple knowledge like where the magazine goes and teaches you how to efficiently run your gun under pressure. You will be taught how to strike the balance between speed and accuracy. You will learn the fundamentals of marksmanship. By the end of the class we will begin introducing you to the more advanced applications that these basics make possible.
