Skill Builder - (Intermediate Level)

The Journey Continues....

This is the next step in becoming a better student of your weapon system and developing a more established defensive mindset. The course will review safety rules, mindset, basic drills, and positions. Even though the safety rules will be reviewed, the student will safely manipulate their weapon system without violating any of the four safety rules. This will be strictly adhered to! In this 16-hour class the student will:

  • - Safely manipulate the weapon system.
  • - Go through a brief refresher of the foundation class.
  • - Be challenged in accuracy - hits at longer distances.
  • - Be introduced to the stress of a timer.
  • - Be taught positional shooting.
  • - Combine movement and accuracy.
  • - Shoot one-handed, both strong and support side.

The 16-hour class will start at the range at 0900 and finish at 1700 for both Saturday and Sunday. Again, three separate weapon platforms can be chosen from and each platform has it's own, separate training course.


Students must have successfully completed the Foundation Course and have either a valid Alaska Concealed Carry Permit, provide current military or law enforcement identification, or have obtained a State of Alaska background check prior to participating in this training.
