EDC Drills

ADVANCED HANDGUN TACTICS

Obviously not for beginners, the purpose of this class is to allow intermediate level shooters to practice important defensive skills that ranges normally will not allow. All participants will work out of a holster (concealed or not) and will not be hindered by limited rates of fire.

Each session will offer different skill-set training including low-light, strong-hand/support-hand defensive drills, shooting while moving, and many other important training opportunities.

ADVANCED HANDGUN TACTICS

Obviously not for beginners, the purpose of this class is to allow intermediate level shooters to practice important defensive skills that ranges normally will not allow. All participants will work out of a holster (concealed or not) and will not be hindered by limited rates of fire.

Each session will offer different skill-set training including low-light, strong-hand/support-hand defensive drills, shooting while moving, and many other important training opportunities.
