Pistol Shooting Solutions is my premier training class and I’m ready to bring it to you!  This class isn’t for beginners – it’s intended to help established defensive handgun practitioners realize the next steps in their journey toward technical excellence to go along with the mindset, awareness, and tactics that form the foundation of self-defense with a handgun.

With Pistol Shooting Solutions, here’s where you might be as a starting point and where you might go from there:  You already have the basics of use-of-force decisionmaking, shooting, and gunhandling  – you know the legal criteria for justified use of deadly force in self-defense, you can load, unload, and draw from a holster safely, you have proper muzzle and trigger finger discipline, shoot reasonably accurately, you can keep your gun running by reloading and clearing malfunctions, and maybe have the basics of use of cover and positional shooting down. What do you do next to improve your technical capability to solve problems where the handgun is an appropriate solution? It’s time to improve your ability to deploy the handgun better, shoot it better, and navigate movement, cover, and the presence of bystanders better. It’s time for Pistol Shooting Solutions.

This class is two full days of intermediate to advanced level training.  We use live and dry fire to improve our defensive use of the handgun, encompassing accuracy and efficiency in shooting, gunhandling, and personal tactics. This will include a heavy focus on developing students’ technical skills and the application of those skills to solve problems relevant to defensive use of the handgun, including simple and complex spatial problems, and mitigation of danger to bystanders. Essentially, this class will focus on high performance in concealed carry and self-defense with a handgun.
