This course is designed to help a new shooter understand and apply the fundamentals of shooting with a pistol.  At the completion of the course, the student will have a solid understanding of the core skill sets required to efficiently employ a pistol and manipulate the system. You do not need an IWI weapon to attend. Any quality pistol will be accepted. Your course will be instructed by members of the special operations community and law enforcement.
