Advanced Handgun

Affordable, convenient one day advanced course modules that can develop your skills to the level of police SWAT team members! Continuing to develop your handgun skills, this one day, ten hour course will review and continue what was instructed in Intermediate Handgun.

In addition to briefly reviewing the content of Intermediate Handgun, you will be familiarized with handgun retention techniques, support hand shooting, moving targets, selecting layered targets, covert versus dynamic building clearing techniques, communicating with hand signals, clearing buildings in low light, and more.

Support hand shooting is important because you may not always be able to shoot your handgun with your shooting hand. For example, if you’re right-handed, shooting around left corners can expose more of you to incoming rounds, as shown in the picture. Developing your support hand shooting ability increases your options and protection during a defensive encounter.

Shooting at moving targets is a valuable skill to develop because people do not stand in one spot while engaged in a confrontation. Unlike what is depicted in Hollywood movies, a threat that is moving is a challenging target. During this course, you will engage targets on a range specifically designed for multiple moving targets.

This course continues improving your building searching skills beyond what you learned in Intermediate Handgun. Pairing up with other students, you will learn to enter buildings and search together. You will practice covering each other and dividing the search between you. Several search techniques are practiced, with the strengths and weaknesses of each technique explained. Both covert and dynamic entries are practiced.

As day turns to night, you will enter the shoot house and practice your building clearing while using a hand-held flashlight and while using a light mounted on your handgun. The strengths and weaknesses of each are explained so that you can determine which would be best for your uses. Also covered are the advantages and disadvantages of continuously switching your light on and off while searching. If you thought clearing a building in the day was challenging, wait until you try it in the night!

As in Intermediate Handgun, you will be instructed in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere without compromising safety, and there will be minimal classroom time to allow maximum range time. A maximum of four students will be registered for each scheduled class, providing you with more personal attention, resulting in more progress.

Successful completion of Intermediate Handgun is a prerequisite to register for this course. The course fee is $180.00 per student, with discounts for three or more students registering at the same time.
