Please Note: Course Requirement, you must have completed CFS successfully.
The Advanced Pistol Handling course is designed to expand the circumstances and conditions under which a student can apply the skills developed in the Combat Focus® Shooting Course. This course will cover:
- Non-Diagnostic Linear Malfunction Drills
- One handed & Weak Handed Reloads
- One Handed & Weak Handed Malfunction Drills
- Presentation from the holster in 360 degrees
- Unorthodox Shooting Positions (grounded, seated)
- Shooting Around Cover
- Unreasonable Distance Shooting
- Volume of Fire
- The Balance of Speed & Precision
The APH Course is designed as a follow on for students who have completed fundamental defensive shooting training in the CFS Program and want to expand their skill sets and increase competency. At the end of the course, the student will have been exposed to (and practiced) shooting positions from all plausible angles while standing, seated, kneeling, prone or supine, as well as properly shooting around cover in order to maximize its protective value. Students will also train one handed firearm handling, reloading, and malfunction clearing. Unlike the CFS Program, in APH students, will be forced to deal with a variety of malfunctions in a way that is congruent with the conditions of a dynamic critical incident.
The APH course is an intense physically and mentally challenging course that will take any student's confidence and ability to defend themselves with a gun to a higher level. Students will fire between 800-1000 rounds during this course.
Students will fire a minimum of 600 rounds during this course. (Students are welcome to bring extra ammunition, as there will be certain drills where round count can easily be increased.)
Price does not include ammunition.
We are pleased to announce that, in collaboration with Personal Defense Network, we are able to offer discounted 9mm and/or .223 ammunition for this course from AngelFire Ammunition. Rob Pincus and other members of our Instructor Team have had the opportunity to test this ammo for reliability in a variety of defensive handguns and AR platform rifles and found it to perform very well under typical training conditions. AngelFire is a sponsor of the 2017 PDN Training Tour. Ammunition can be ordered and shipment can be arranged to you OR your Training Location by following this link: https://www.angelfireammo.com/PDN/ .
