This advanced course provides students with innovative techniques and knowledge necessary to defend themselves and react appropriately when in imminent threat of great bodily injury, harm or death.  Its concentration will be on shooting techniques that most students have never experienced before.

8-hour course


600 rounds

Surviving an active shooter incident is dependent upon having a plan of action and immediately implementing that plan, before the shooter can implement his/her full plan of attack.   Most of the deadly force encounters last only a few seconds and occur within close (contact) distances of 7 feet.


This is an Advanced Tactical level course.  Previous Tactical Pistol course, current military/law enforcement, active or retired, or a current CCW Tactical course graduate is required at a minimum. Students should be able to demonstrate proficiency in weapon handling, working from concealment and cover and the ability to rapidly change from strong to weak hand will on the move and shooting.
