In this one-day, concealed carry class we’ll devote the majority of the session to building comfort drawing and shooting your pistol from concealment—safely. We will touch upon how to properly carry concealed as well as equipment selection and clothing, but let’s face it there are a plethora of resources out there for this type of information (and we’ll direct you to a few of the best). The primary focus of our time together will to get in many reps (building muscle memory) safely drawing a pistol from concealment (inside-the-waistband or outside-the waistband holster), shooting, and holstering under the guidance of instructors—something you cannot get from other resources (e.g., YouTube).

Participants will learn:

  • Proper draw and holstering of a concealed pistol
  • Drawing from concealment and engaging targets at ranges from 3 to 20 yards
  • Accessing reloads from concealment and getting the pistol back into action quickly
  • Engaging multiple targets as well as identifying and using cover
  • Best practices for concealed carry

Note: This is not a law of self-defense class nor will it cover the many “what ifs” of self-defense encounters. We’ll direct you to resources for this information during the class.
