Primarily for somewhat intermediate shooters, this is an introduction to Tactical Training, and is offered privately or in small groups (2-4). Most people who own a handgun practice at commercial ranges (which usually disallow holsters), standing in one spot, shooting at one target from a ready position, and using slow, deliberate fire to maximize marksmanship. While this is a necessary step in your development, it does little good when you are faced with an armed carjacker in a parking garage.
This course is taught entirely at a private outdoor range NE of McKinney. Students draw and fire at FBI targets, do rapid-fire and timed drills for marksmanship, shoot at multiple targets, shoot from concealment, and reload during timed drills.
Students will also learn flash-picture acquisition. The goal is to maximize speed, accuracy, and efficiency.
Most civilians respond poorly in a crisis situation, because they have not trained enough to have muscle-memory instincts. Changes in adrenalin levels and blood pressure will cause fine motor skills to dissipate, leaving only muscle-memory between you and disaster. This course is intended to give you the tools and confidance to develop those instincts.
