Concealed Carry: Beyond the Basics
This course is for experienced shooters who want to apply their livefire skills in reality based training and simulations. It gives private citizens the opportunity to receive court defensible firearms skills training at the same level police officers are required to by court decisions. The courts, in several different cases, have held individual officers and agencies liable for failing to undertake viable firearms training.
Training at this level also gives a sense of confidence that individuals who carry weapons wish to have. Their ability to apply or not apply deadly force in an appropriate and competent manner is enhanced.
This is a shooting course with minimal lecture. It gives armed persons experience at using their firearms to perform a number of realistic shooting tasks and document that training. Persons taking this course should already be competent at safely drawing a pistol from a holster and hitting a silhouette target at 7 yards; it is not a beginner’s course.
