Defensive Hand gunning: Pistol Tactics Inc. style!

Not often considered to be the preferred defensive weapon system; handguns, can be the best and often the only weapon system available at the time the threat presents itself to the operator.  All things considered; if we as operators, knew we were about to enter a combative situation; not only would our weapon system be different, we’d most likely redirect and avoid the fight.  We don’t market our classes as ‘tactical’ classes; moreover, we created a building block of classes designed to build upon skills learned in the previous courses.  No elitist attitudes or ego’s are present in our classes.

Defensive Hand gunning: A Primer

This course addresses methods, techniques and skills for carrying a handgun concealed and addresses the engagement of threats in everyday events.  All methods, techniques and skills addressed in our Defensive Handgun courses are presented from a concealed carry prospective, unless otherwise noted or requested.
