2-day Functional Pistol Course for Warriors

Course Length: 2-Days (Friday, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM Saturday, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM)
Tuition: $279



This is NOT a Basic Pistol Class or Handgun 101. Students must be able to show an understanding of the basic skills of safe gun handling, function checks, magazine changes and safe manipulation through malfunctions. 

This is a skill-building course that transitions a basic shooter/ CHL holder through being a range target shooter to the beginnings of being a “gun fighter”.
Novice or beginner shooters should not feel discouraged or that “this class isn’t for me”. This is NOT a “competition shooting” course, nor is it a course filled with machoism, testosterone, and overstated bravado. 

This course is built by qualified, quality prior military and law enforcement, quiet professionals that teach through humility to build capability in every shooter. The course is taught in a blended learning style with minor classroom/ lecture and maximum range time. 

Students will be taught in a relaxed, welcoming environment without judgement and ridicule. Students will never be asked to operate outside their personal physical limitations and modifications for shooting positions will be taught/ allowed whenever necessary.

Firearms are inherently dangerous when mishandled; safety is paramount and will never be compromised. Safety violators will be coached until it is obvious that the skillsets necessary for safe, continued performance are deficient.

 After an appropriate amount of coaching, repeat safety violators will be asked to withdraw from the course and may attend another course once they have remediated
their inadequate skills.

Topics / Objectives:

                      Legal liability issues

                      Fundamentals of Firearm Safety

                      Mentality of a gunfighter

                      Mental awareness/ dressing for success

                      Developing a defensive mindset for carrying and using a firearm for church protection

                      Psychological and physiological changes that may occur during an attack

                      Flash sight picture

                      Reload under stress

                      Clear common stoppages – immediate action drills

                      Present a pistol from concealment and reholster

                      Strong hand transitions, strong = strong, one hand shooting

                      Shooting from Cover and concealment

                      Move off the line of attack and shooting while moving

                      Communicating and Working with partners

                      Multiple threat engagement

                      Qualification course

Physical requirements/ Prequalification

This is not a basic, license to carry, “meet the minimum standard” course. However, the course is designed to engage and develop novice to advanced shooters so that all level of student walks away with tactics, techniques, and concepts they can employ immediately in the protection of others.

                      Students must be familiar with the safe operation of their firearm to include: clearing common malfunctions, reloading and disassembly.

                      Students must have working knowledge and practice the four firearm safety rules. The “laser rule” will be strictly enforced.

                      Students must be physically fit enough to participate in all training scenarios and courses of fire. This is not a overly physical course beyond basics of standing on a firing line, kneeling and moving while shooting. However, a long day of constant reloading and shooting with arms extended, and multiple iterations of drills will be somewhat physically challenging and will be impacted by the weather conditions. Students will never be pushed beyond their personal physical limitations.

                      Students must be mature enough and have emotional intelligence to handle corrective feedback and correction one on one and in a group setting. Students will be exposed to new techniques and concepts, having the right mindset is critical to attempting and incorporating new ideas. This is paramount to the overall growth of the shooter.  

Mandatory Equipment/ Logistics

The phrase “buy once, cry once” is a well-known phrase in the firearms community. This means buy the best equipment and gear that you can so that you only have to buy it once. Cheap gear is cheap for a reason – you will end up buying it repeatedly. It is the individual student’s responsibility to have the necessary equipment and gear for training.

                      A quality firearm (semi-automatic or revolver) made by a major manufacturer chambered in .380 or higher. If you use a revolver it must be double action.

o   Pocket guns, derringers, single action revolvers and any pistol with a capacity less than 5rds are prohibited in this course. They all represent a safety hazard for this type of training.

                      A quality holster that has retention for your firearm that is carried on or near your strong or dominant hip. (appendix carry is allowed provided the shooter participates correctly in all safety exercises). The holster must correctly fit the weapon, completely cover the trigger guard, remain open when the weapon is removed, not allow the weapon to cover the shooter’s body. “Retention” means that the firearm is secured when holstered and will not accidentally come out or fall out of the holster.

o   An Uncle Mikes style cloth holster worn inside or outside the waistband is NOT considered a secure holster and will not allow the shooter to safely reholster.

o   Holsters that require two hands to reholster such as leather holsters without internal molding, shoulder holsters, ankle holsters and fanny pack holsters are prohibited.  They all represent a safety hazard for this type of training.

                      A minimum of 600 rounds of quality, factory ammunition for your firearm.

o   Currently there are ammunition shortages for most calibers. It is important to plan for purchase of ammo, do not wait until the week before the course to try to buy ammo.

                      Four magazines or speed loaders for your firearm to include a pouch or other carry method for spare magazines or speed loaders (you must be able to carry a minimum of two spare magazines on you for all exercises)

                      Quality hearing protection. Electronic hearing protection is recommended but not necessary.

                      Quality wraparound eye protection (prescription glasses are acceptable)

                      Ball cap or cap with brim

                      Knee pads for kneeling drills

Optional Equipment

“We train how we fight” is a saying that is common in military and law enforcement circles. This means that we should wear the same gear or as close to in training as we would in a real-world encounter. Therefore, it is highly encouraged for students to dress in a manner typical of their normal Sunday or church attire. Of course, you don’t want to wear your best Sunday suit but a close approximation or a cheap approximation is just fine. Stores like Ross and Goodwill usually have low cost options of sport coats that can be adopted to the range for accurate training simulation.  Other jackets, a vest or heavy shirt can also be used to conceal your pistol so you can work from a concealed position.

                      Spare firearm


                      Clothing and footwear suitable for all weather conditions

                      Range bag or backpack that allows you to bring all necessary gear to the line with you

                      A cleaning kit and materials for your pistol

                      Quality Belt, designed to carry a holster and a firearm strongly recommended
