Introduction to Defensive Handgun


This course is to introduce students to defensive handgun shooting.  This class is not meant to have students become masters of any of the particular skills or subjects in the course, but rather to introduce them to some basic fundamental skills, as well as to give them an idea of some of the other skills they have the opportunity to learn in advanced training such as the use of cover, one handed manipulation, movement and cover, etc.  The goal of this class is to give the student a good skill base to begin building from, a knowledge of what else is out there, and a hunger for more.
