Close Contact Handgun

This course will teach you to work verbal, physical and gun handling skill sets at close contact distances. Scenario based training is used heavily throughout this program, and the entire course is hands on. Students will learn how to consistently engage live fire targets at arms’ length, and also use UTM and demo guns to engage in force-on-force training with role players at close contact distances, out of vehicles and inside structures.
