Course Description

This one day course will focus on single hand operation and manipulation of one's weapon. The first half of the day will focus on the pistol as your primary weapon, and the second half will focus on the carbine. The student will learn techniques to enable them stay in the fight even when one arm has been injured or is otherwise occupied. Both strong side and support side manipulations will be covered. You may be down, but after this course you won't be out.
