Defensive Pistol Training
“Having been to other more commercial shooting courses, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Because of the small number of students, we were able to do much more than I have before. The scenarios were realistic, and they make you think about how you can prepare for the time when you may have to use a gun to save a life. Very useful, thought provoking. You can’t walk away from the course without thinking about something new.” -John
“This was my second class with Guy & Suzanne. First for my CC Permit. Both were over-the-top excellent. Very inviting, thorough & I walked away with a better understanding in both the legalities involved and handgun efficiency.” -Steve
Three men of military background team up to quickly expend ammo. Wheel gunner with 327 & speed loaders holds his own even against the 16 round capacity 92FS. It is good to see people with firearm background recognize the need for pistol skill refreshment.
Like any good picnic worth its salt, paper plates abound and there is activity aplenty.
Pureland Security is the division of Graceful Guns where we run our National Rifle Association programs.
The real July heat was much softened by our serious shade canopy. Photo is from our Monthly Defensive Pistol Refresher. In this class we cover the Use of Force Law, study defensive shooting technique, contemplate keys of the defensive mindset & shoot 200 rounds.
Couples that take the plunge into safety by defensive preparedness have a lot of fun and build an important accord. Survival is a strong instinct and wise decision. Here is something new to do together that pays dividends in many other areas of relationship-life.
A comment from Sydney: “I’ve taken other courses that were WAY too large so the smaller class was excellent! Also, the fact we got to shoot at a range was amazing and I had a lot more fun than I anticipated. I was very comfortable the whole time. The material was broken down for anyone to understand and comprehend. The price of the class was extremely reasonable (and much cheaper than other courses I have taken) and I felt very comfortable walking away from this class where at the other classes I did not. Guy & Suzanne genuinely care about our comfortability and safety. I now feel that I have the knowledge and experience to apply for my CWP which I didn’t have before. I cannot wait to sign up for other classes they offer.”
We were fortunate to have a bright, clear and warm December day for our monthly class.
Our September Carry Train class met with excellent shooting weather on range day. Carry Train is a smaller, easy to schedule portion of our Graceful Guns 1st Degree Class: Holsters, Vehicles and Multiple Assailants At the Wrong Time.
Dry-fire Sessions are an opportunity for gaining familiarity with your firearm. There are many elements to pistol technique that may be smoothed into a unified flow before the noise and recoil of range-work are added to the mix.
Some students have specific difficulties with form and fundamentals that can lead to much frustration when bullet placement is poor. It is best to coordinate stance, grip, trigger pull and eye focus before letting lead fly.
A positive live-fire experience is a valuable reinforcement of all classroom learning. It is best to prepare for this positive experience by debugging as needed in the dry-fire or empty-gunning mode.
