Defensive Handgun I is taught at our new firearms training center located in Bloomery WV. It is an 8 hour introductory course for students who have been consistently shooting for several years and are serious about carrying a concealed handgun. A basic understanding of the fundamentals of shooting, along with good marksmanship skills are required to take this course. The class starts with a 2 hour lecture on topics such as types of concealed carry firearms, advantages/disadvantages of each, ammunition, modes of concealing a handgun and real world statistics and realistic encounters. The entire course is focused on the safe and proper presentation of a handgun from a holster (either concealed or not concealed). After a successful “skills evaluation exercise”, the student is introduced to several types of gun malfunctions, proper reloading techniques, proper gun manipulation, multiple shot and multiple target engagements. The student is introduced to the use of steel targets, instilling an instant, positive feedback. Finally, a brief exercise on the use of cover and single handed shooting is introduced followed by a “real world” problem the student must successfully solve. Upon successful completion of all shooting exercises, the student will receive a signed 8 hour course completion certificate. 350rds required
