Personal Defense Handgun III


This class will refine your defensive handgun skills to a level that you hadn’t thought possible in such a short time!


Your increased speed, accuracy and weapons handling skills will be obvious to your friends and your total confidence and awareness will be apparent to those that would do you harm.


Firearms laws, justification in the use of lethal force, situational awareness, resolving disputes and criminal and civil liability are a few of the crucial lecture topics.


Early in the class we’ll provide an in-depth look at the shooting fundamentals and how to achieve consistent, pinpoint accuracy on demand. You’ll then move into trigger-control, recoil management, accuracy drills and progress into lightning-fast presentations from the holster, malfunction clearance, ammunition management and much, much more including failure-to-stop drills, engaging multiple assailants, concealment techniques and shooting on the move.


PDH III includes a night shoot, close-quarters scenarios, room entry and clearing and other tactics.


We reserve the right to modify the course curriculum to accomodate student's skills, weather and/or location, terrain, local laws, etc.


This class will involve a considerable amount of shooting with about 800 rounds of ammunition being expended. Your speed, accuracy and total confidence with your weapon will exceed your highest expectations and your friends will marvel at your new-found skills.
