This workshop is not a Basic Handgun class. If you do not have a firm understanding of shooting fundamentals, take our Fundamental Handgun Workshop first. This is a 3 hour Defensive Handgun workshop designed for the LTC carrier wanting to improve their handgun skills and practice shooting from concealment. You must have a valid License to Carry (LTC) and have a firm understanding of the fundamentals to take this workshop.
In this workshop, students will draw and engage targets to develop and reinforce safe gun-handling skills for self-defense. We will discuss and perform handgun manipulation, shooting while moving and shooting from cover.
Students will perform dry and live-fire exercises on paper, rubber and steel targets.
This is an exciting and fast paced workshop.
The workshop will be held at the Guardian Training Agency private range Midland, Texas (Location provided upon registration)
“I’ve been shooting handgun for around 6 years and acquired my LTC through Guardian Training Agency. This class was definitely different than any classes I have taken in the past because it forces you into a 360 degree mindset. This difficult to replicate on a typical square range that I am used to.
This makes the shooter think and problem solve on the fly.
The retention shooting portion of the class was something that was completely new to me and critical (in my opinion) if you carry daily like I do.
Retention shooting really pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me more aware of how my garment/holster and firearm will all interact in a very close defensive situation.
All in all I thought it was a great class. I would highly recommend it to anyone that carries a handgun.- Derek
