COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course combines the skills that you have learned in Defensive Handgun 1 (static level - basics) and Defensive Handgun 2 (dynamic level - advanced), into the world of reality (the interactive level).
Students will be subjected to numerous shoot/don’t shoot scenario based situations using marking cartridges and role players during force on force encounters. In addition, students will use our live-fire training simulator that projects scenarios down range while using their own gun, ammo, accuracy and judgement. These two proven teaching methods provide invaluable experience and insight that cannot be learned through academics alone.
• Reading cues that often precede violence and then reacting accordingly
to avoid or fight
• Use of verbalization when it’s appropriate
• The moving human adversary
• Applying the law as it relates to the use, non-use or cessation of deadly
force in compressed time frames while under immense levels of stress
• Post shooting reactions and responsibilities
Scenarios will take place in day light and low light conditions with single and multiple adversaries. They include, but are not limited to; party store / gas station robbery, carjacking, B&E of the home, and active shooter situations.
