RDS Handgun Instructor Firearms Training

Moving Handgun - 2 Day Course, 16 hours    

$500.00    800 Rounds

Moving Handgun, as the name implies, focuses on the skill set of moving efficiently with a handgun and engaging targets.  This course course was developed after reviewing numerous officer involved shootings, permit to carry holder self defense shootings and even scenarios and elements from the competition arena.  Additionally examining and guidance from top tier training methods and schools have influence in this course, namely Mentor Dave Spaulding.  We have been teaching the elements of this course to law enforcement and are now excited to add it to our course offerings.  

Whether a student is looking to prepare for a self defense situation, a law enforcement officer on the street, or a competitive shooter looking to increase performance, movement and motion is present in all of the these situations.  This is an active course and there will be a heavy emphasis on moving, running, and getting rounds on target.  As with all of our course the end goal is accuracy and effective shot placement, however adding the element of moving and moving targets increases the difficulty.  

This course is not a beginner course and focuses on a specific skill set.  The student needs to already have a solid understanding of safe firearm handling, manipulation, an established skill set of marksmanship.  Prior training or experience is required, this should not be your first training course.  The student will need to provide their experience upon registration and will need to be approved by staff before registration will be finalized.  If you have any questions please contact us, we are happy to help find the best class to fit what you are looking for.  Permit to carry training is not sufficient.  

Lunch, snacks, water, and sports drinks are all privided on site and included with tuition.
