This course is designed for more advanced shooters to go beyond the State courses for concealed carry licensing. Shooting drills are designed to give the shooter the tools to successfully defend themselves, their families and others in a confrontation. From doorways and hallways, to positional shooting involving everyday situations and other possibilities, the student will come away with a sense of their responsibilities and why training, practice and a defensive mindset are essential elements of carrying a concealed firearm.
