Combative Pistol puts you in the middle of several scenarios where proper use of tactics, cover, concealment, movement and marksmanship will make the difference in winning or losing. Students will go through a scenario and then it will be critiqued based on the above listed criteria. Get your adrenaline pump kicking into high gear, have fun and learn what works in a high risk, lethal force event.

Fun shoot scenarios and competition on steel targets such as plate racks and dueling trees is also included in this two-day course.
