A three-hour course designed to take basic pistol shooters and introduce them to the practical shooting principals that will allow them to more effectively engage targets during high-threat situations. This course is for the average person who wishes to develop the real-world shooting skills necessary to survive life-threatening situations. Classes are taught in the traditional OTS relaxed and friendly atmosphere with the majority of the class (90%) taught on the range. The cost is $125 and includes targets, eye protection/ear protection, classroom and range time. Space is limited to eight students for this dynamic class. You will need to bring:
