Note: All of my classes come with a money back/ammo back guarantee that if the student (after taking the class in it’s entirety) isn’t completely satisfied with what they learned, if they didn’t learn anything, if they got a sunburn and their girlfriend dumped them because they had a farmer’s tan – whatever – I will gladly give them their money and ammo back *because I don’t teach classes for a living.
CCW Fundamental 1 Day – 6 hours – 400 rounds $200
CCW Fundamental is not a class focused on getting your CCW Permit. This is not a class focused on deadly force law. This class is designed to teach the student how to apply the fundamentals of pistol shooting in such a way that the student can 1) communicate the fundamentals effectively 2) apply them, executing speed, accuracy, and consistency 3) begin to self diagnosis their own flaws.
The fundamentals are the foundation of our pistol shooting. And without a solid foundation, trying to build speed an accuracy apart from this foundation will only yield inconsistent results. After the student spends time watching themselves grow, we then practice and communicate the fundamentals of drawing our weapon from concealment with two hands and then with one hand.
The goal is simple: Give the student the tools they need to practice perfectly from concealment. Allow them to confidence to build upon what they know works and watch their shooting flourish and develop as they continue to take from other instructors.
2 Day CCW Fundamental – 11 hours – 800 rounds $350
Same 6 hour class as the One Day CCW Fundamental class, the only difference is the second day we learn how to draw from adverse shooting positions and we begin to stress the fundamentals. Day one, we focus primarily on process and not performance. Day two, we focus on process and we begin rewarding performance under stress (via competition, shot timers, ect). The goal is not to win or have the best time. The goal is that under stress we can see and self diagnosis where our fundamentals begin to fade as well as what step of our draw process begins to suffer.
Close Retention Fundamental – 1 Day – 6 hours – 400 rounds $200
Close retention, also called contact shooting, stems from the idea of having to retain your pistol from the potential of a lethal force threat engaging the shooter in arms length. This class is all about the process of drawing and indexing our pistol safely and “point shooting” from the hip and high pectoral. The goal is to guide the student through the process to practice this safely, teaching techniques and tips to solve potential problems of attacker induced malfunctions and other areas of proficiencies. In the one day class, we revisit the fundamentals of pistol shooting, the fundamentals of the two hand and one hand draw and then, through focus, dry fire, and repetition, we focus on close retention shooting.
2 Day Close Retention Fundamental – 11 hours – 800 rounds $350
The first day is the same as the One Day Close Retention Class with the only difference being that after we fill comfortable with the process from day one, we being to trust the process with movement, multiple targets, and performance reporting (meaning we analyze the shooters trigger finger and muzzle coming out of the holster via slow motion video). Once we feel comfortable, we begin more dynamic exercises that involve defensive shooting techniques (putting a lot of bullets quickly and accurately into the target while moving).
Fundamental Rifle – 5 hours – 400 rounds $150
Fundamental rifle is taught 2 or 3 times a year and is a lot of fun. Primary focus is on rifle setup, zeroing your rifle, manual of arms, and fundamental shooting techniques. Unlike most classes, my Fundamental rifle class incorporates learning what malfunctions can occur to keep the rifle from operating, and knowing how to identify and problem solve.
