This class is the second step in the building block process in our Defensive Firearms Series for Pistol and Carbine. This course is designed to take students who have successfully completed our Level 1 course and introduce them to shooting in a dynamic environment. The course will focus on your safety, mindset, shooting while moving, shooting from adverse angles and positions, shooting in low light/no light environments, round placement, target acquisition and self-confidence. The instruction emphasizes the natural progression of each individual student. Our instructors focus on understanding your unique strengths and weaknesses, and strive to develop your individual skills. We begin with a refresher on skills learned through our level 1 course. The objective of this course is to familiarize the shooter with the essential elements of effective shooting in less than perfect, real world situations. You will leave here both confident and proficient in handling and manipulating your weapon system as well as solving problems under stressful conditions.
