Course Description:

Many people think they know how to operate a handgun or to shoot accurately.  However, do you know how to rapidly deploy your handgun in a stressful situation, clear any malfunctions, make a successful hit, reload your weapon, and perform them all within 3 seconds?

If you are considering carrying a handgun for personal defense, or just want to keep one in your nightstand, this is a vital course for you.  Regardless of how many rounds you have fired at your local range, you will learn how to use your handgun in real world situation.

If you have never fired your weapon before, this is a perfect class for you.  If you think you are an expert, we guarantee you will still learn something.

This course is approximately 50% classroom and 50% range time.

The classroom portion covers firearm safety for the real world, and goes extensively into the survival mindset.

The range portion covers how to grip and operate your weapon, the proper stance, how draw your weapon from the holster, how to do various reloads under time, and does a brief overview of weapon malfunction clearing. A discussion of the proper way to conduct dry-fire at home ends the day.

  • Semi-automatic Handgun
  • Extra Magazine and method to carry that magazine
  • Holster (No SERPA Retention Holsters)

      Not this particular class, but we will be holding a course for the revolver. If you want to take this class, but need to borrow a handgun, we have that option available.

    I am a new member of ccrt and I was really looking forward to this course and this is probably the only Saturday I would be able to attend because I have been working 6 days a week. And I was just added this week to the Facebook group and I didn’t know about it until yesterday Can you help me out?
