The course is designed to give students the ability to shoot accurately up to 7 yards, without using the gun's sights . Students will be able to draw and fire five rounds at a 13 X 24 inch target from a distance of 7 yards in under 2.5 seconds. All five rounds must be on the target. Instilling this level of confidence in the shooter's mind is key to giving him/her the edge in surviving an armed encounter.
After a brief lecture on the principles involving instinctive point shooting and range safety briefing, students will proceed to the range and apply those principles through practical exercises on the range: Class starts at 8:00 AM and breaks at noon for an how lunch break.
