Range Shooting Session #2
Equipment Selection Suggested Reading: Before purchasing that defensive handgun - consider FIT.
Course of fire is active. This is not a target shooting course. You will be aggressively using your firearm. Thus, you will find out early in the course whether the firearm you brought with you actually fits YOU in real life defensive combat simulated situations. You will be drawing from a strong side holster, firing, reloading during courses of fire, clearing malfunctions, moving off the line of attack, shooting at close quarters defensive combat distances (including, physical contact with "attacker"), shooting to your side, shooting to your rear, etc... . However, if a student has physical limitations that is fine. I will work with you in this regard. Thus, a particular student's physical constraints will be taken into account so that you don't exceed your actual physical limitations (you need to tell me about them), or a student's actual shooting ability, as observed at the range.
