Skill Builder - (Intermediate level)

The Journey continues

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 thou the safety rules will be reviewed, the student will safely manipulate their weapon system without violating any 4 of the safety rules. This will be strictly adhered too! In this 16 hour class the student-

  • -Safely manipulate the weapon system
  • -Go through a brief refresh of the foundation class
  • -Be challenged in accurate hits at longer distances
  • -Be introduced to the stress of a timer
  • -Be taught positional shooting
  • -Go combine movement and accuracy

The 16-hour class will start at the range at 0900 and finish at 1700 for both Saturday and Sunday. Again, 3 separate weapon platforms can be chosen from. Each platform whether pistol, shotgun or carbine will be a separate class from one another.
