*CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Unlike most "objective-based" training programs out there, ours is "performance-based". You'll be exposed to a multitude of drills, situations and shooting positions while we accurately measure your progress during the class.

Through economy of motion and consistency, students perform a series of challenging drills to develop the knowledge, skills and attitude to carry and use a concealed pistol efficiently and with confidence.

We start with principles of concealed carry and situation awareness, we review several types of holsters and shoot different types of small pistols. Students go over basic pistol shooting fundamentals, holster techniques, threat identification, proper use of cover, concealment, scanning and finally different shooting positions.

You'll draw from a holster and shoot w/ 2 hands, strong hand only, support hand only, shoot stationary, while moving fast and slow, forwards and back. You'll clear all types of malfunctions, shoot from behind cover, while turning, from kneeling, prone, on your back, on paper targets, on steel targets, multiple targets and from different distances.


*WEATHER:

Please check the weather and dress accordingly, we shoot outdoors rain or shine. You'll be notified prior to class of a cancellation due severe weather conditions.


*FOOD AND BEVERAGES:

Beverages are available for purchase from a machine at the range but bring your own lunch and/or snacks


*NYC RESIDENTS:

You must show your "special carry license with an out of city validation" or a LE badge prior to shooting on this range. Please contact NYPD licensing division if you have any questions at (646) 610-5560.
