Defensive Handgun II

Defensive Handgun II 

8 Hours / $250

Defensive Handgun II reinforces the core fundamentals covered in Defensive Handgun I with emphasis on urgency, the economy of motion, precision, and one-hand manipulation. Shooters will understand the dynamics of a defensive encounter while negotiating the use of cover, multiple shooting positions, and shooting on the move. The course culminates in a final individual event that requires each shooter to employ the techniques learned in Defensive Handgun I and II while experiencing mental and physiological stressors.  Defensive Handgun II serves as the prerequisite for Defensive Handgun III.
