This is the third step in the building block process of our Defensive Firearms Series for Pistol and Carbine. This course is designed to take students who have successfully completed our level 1 and 2 courses and teach them how to further increase their ability to survive in a gun fight. The few luxuries afforded to our students in our level 1 and 2 courses will be absent in level 3. This is a dynamic, fun, stress inoculated training evolution.
Students will work individually and as a team while performing in challenging environments, situations and drills. They will apply past skills and new techniques to marksmanship, firearms manipulation and tactical shooting. The course will focus on your safety, dynamic shooting scenarios, problem solving, close proximity shooting, buddy team movements, battle space assessment, situational awareness, target identification and more. Our goal is that our students leave this course feeling confident in their abilities to prevail in a violent encounter and are masters in running their weapon system.
