Defensive Pistol: $125.00 - Limit 4 students per class
This 2.5 hour class was created to meet the needs of those requiring training with their concealed carry pistols beyond the basic static target shooting experience you get at the range.
In this class we help LTC / Open carry license holders develop the real world skills and attitude necessary to survive a real life dynamic threat encounter. You will also learn about the psychological and physiological effects of a life threatening encounter. We'll teach you methods to overcome these barriers and how to defend yourself effectively despite them. Class attendees will receive training related to achieving combat accuracy, tactical reloads, handgun presentation from the holster concealed, stance, movement while shooting and drills to improve speed and precision utilizing SIRT laser pistols.
Participants should have a basic knowledge of safe gun handling and be able to load and operate a handgun to attend this class. This is not a basic pistol class or the class to qualify for a Concealed Carry Weapons Permit.
Firearms skills are highly perishable and recurrent training is a must for the responsible citizen to maintain proficiency. Should you ever be involved in a life or death situation, you'll be thankful for the confidence in your skills and ability that this training imparts.
To ensure sufficient practice repetitions and personalized instruction for each student we have a strict limit of 4 students per class. No exceptions will be made. Class limits can be waived when booking private classes.
Dryfire practice is an excellent way to work on shooting fundametals. Many top competitive and tactical shooters recommend dryfire practice with your firearm of choice. However, those same shooters also agree that dryfire practice is boring. While you get a lot of trigger time (without firing a lot of rounds of ammunition), you don't get a lot of feedback and it's difficult to see how well you're doing.
We use the Shot Indicating Resetting Trigger (SIRT) Training Pistol because it was developed by shooters for shooters, to complement, not replace, live fire training. The SIRT is an extremely valuable tool for training concealed carry applications. You can safely practice your draw from new clothing configurations before you hit the range. With the SIRT, you can also train in unorthodox shooting positions and draw from your holster which may not typically be permitted at your indoor range.
We use L.A.S.R. to fill the gaps in dryfire practice by giving you a way to track your progress, while making dryfire more fun and engaging. When you start shooting your SIRT pistol at the targets L.A.S.R uses advances in the field of computer vision to "see" the laser from your SIRT pistol and record the exact location of your shot. This unique system also provides a shot timer for the added benefit of working on timed drills as well as audible hit recognition. We also have the ability to print out your targets so you'll have a record of your performance.
Many of our customers tell us from having had the chance to use the SIRT pistol and L.A.S.R shot reporting system in our training classes, they are now planning on buying the same setup for themselves to use at home.
Benefits of Training With SIRT & L.A.S.R.
The SIRT pistol weighs about the same as a real pistol. With my frequent practice sessions your hand, forearm, and shoulder strength will improve. After a few minutes with the SIRT, You can definitely start to feel the weight of the gun.
Because the SIRT doesn’t actually contain any ammunition, just a dummy magazine that weighs the same as a full one,
you don’t have to ever worry about practicing around the house, around the kids, or in front of a mirror.
The trigger pull on the SIRT is pretty much the same as a Glock. If you have a tendency to anticipate when you shoot the SIRT will help a great deal in training you how to pull the trigger and break this bad habit.
You get tons of training without wasting any ammo.
Almost all of the shooting ranges in the DFW area do not allow holster practice. With the SIRT you can practice drawing all day long if you want without a grumpy range officer calling you out over the loudspeaker. What’s the point of carrying in a holster if you’re not 100% comfortable and confident with drawing and shooting? The SIRT is a huge help with this.
You can experiment with different styles of stance and grip without firing a single shot. This will help you determine the stance that works best for you.
Because the pistol has both a weighted magazine and a magazine release, it’s possible to practice reloads.
