This is not a stand alone class. This class assumes you have had the concealed weapons class and read "In The Gravest Extreme" by Massad Ayoob. *Pre-requisite* to this class is a successfully completed Next Step class This course picks up where the Next Step course leaves off. We will work on advanced skills introduced in Next Step. We will use timers to induce stress and push students to master their pistol manipulation skills. Work to find your individual balance of speed and accuracy. Line drills also include one-hand/support-hand only, re-loads and malfunction drills. We will push you to think outside the box to master your respective weapon system. You will draw and shoot on the move, re-load and fix malfunctions while moving to cover. There are multiple shooting positions, transitions, multiple adversaries, and shooting in a 360 degree environment. Also, room clearing, shoot-no-shoot scenarios. We cover flashlight techniques and running your gun in the dark.
