Defensive Handgun 2

Advanced Pistol Training

This course is the follow up to the DHI (Defensive Handgun I) course. In this course the student will continue to grow his/her skills they learned in DHI with a heavier focus on moving off line of attack, barricades, how to move-shoot-fight from inside and around vehicles, and beginning tactics. This is an 9 hour course spent entirely on the range. This is not an NRA course of instruction.
