URBAN FIGHTING PISTOL
SEPT 11-12TH / Thunder Ranch Oregon
Get ready for Clint Smith and James Yeager, teaching a “combination of parts from each class” Handgun class!
Defensive Handgun 1 (DH1)
While many people own handguns, most people do not know how to effectively use them. The Defensive Handgun 1 (DH1) course addresses basic skills of gun safety, drawing, loading, and malfunctions. Some advanced skills such as firing at extended distance, moving targets, shooting and moving, basic tactics, low light handgun operation (handheld tactical-style flashlight required, button on tail-cap), and other issues specific to the defensive use of a handgun are also covered in this class. The DH1 class is a great place to start for students new to handgun shooting, students new to professional training with handguns, or even well trained individuals looking to brush up on the core fundamentals.
Course Length (Thunder Ranch Oregon): 2 Days
Thunder Ranch Oregon: NOMINAL 1000 Rounds of frangible ammunition.
The root word to “gunfight” isn’t “gun.” It is “FIGHT”!
This is the course everyone is talking about! It is the most comprehensive 2-day handgun class in the world! This course is literally a life saver. Our Fighting Pistol course prepares you to prevail in a real world violent confrontation and many students have gone on and done just that! This intensive course covers an incredible amount of material in just two days and we have been told that it covers more than any 5 day course at the “big schools”.
Topics include the role and attributes of the handgun, legal aspects of deadly force, anatomical stopping power, mental conditioning for combat, movement and communication. Live fire drills include both one- and two-handed shooting, shooting on the move, use of cover and concealment, loading and reloading, using both eye level as well as retention techniques, at a variety of ranges and from a variety of body positions. This course is about 40% lecture on mindset, tactics, skill, and legal issues but don’t worry because you will still be shooting.
