The Introduction to Home Defense Handguns course is designed to educate the student about the handguns that are best for personal defense and how to use them efficiently in the context of a home defense scenario.
This course is designed specifically for those new to firearms, but experienced shooters who are interested in learning specifically about using a handgun for personal defense in a home defense environment may also want to attend.
The course includes an overview of fundamental Home defense tactics. It incorporates self defense shooting techniques as well as instruction on quick but safe handgun access in the home and how to stage multiple firearms safely throughout the home. .
This comprehensive course takes place at a live fire range where students will be introduced to the fundamentals of defensive shooting. Students will learn about various firearms types and the distinct advantages that some have over others with regard to defensive use. Students will be introduced to the most important shooting skills and have the opportunity to develop their competency in the context of a "home defense" shooting situation. Fundamental Home Defense Tactics, Responsible Defensive Firearms Storage and dealing with Law Enforcement Response will also be covered.
This course is designed to take 4-6 hours, depending on class size.
Students will need to bring 150 rounds of ammunition and should bring their defensive handgun (if they own one) and three (3) magazines. If possible bring your storage safe.
