Description Reviews This one-day live-fire course covers the application of pistol skill in an armed confrontation. The focus will be on applying your shooting under stress and in conflict, and in a manner that is not only practical but is also legally defensible. Your skill at shooting drives your tactics, but there is more to fighting with a firearm than pure shooting skill. Our goal is for every student to leave this course with a deeper understanding of how to apply their hard earned shooting skill in a fighting context. Topics Covered: Application of skill vs development of skill Practical application of marksmanship Psychology of gunfighting Use of movement Use of cover Consistent application of shooting skill under stress Live fire scenarios Course Prerequisites Good health and a fitness level sufficient for strenuous physical activity.
