Special Interest Seminar: Pocket Guns

The dirty little secret in defensive handgunning, is that even the gurus at times slip a small gun in the pocket for those times where a full-sized gun just isn’t viable.  With this in mind, we are going to train with these guns for a hard 6 hours, pushing their capabilities and exploring “pocket gun” tactics.  The gun should be a center-fire pistol caliber of .32 or larger and be able to fit into the front pocket of a pair of blue jeans,  (relaxed fit for some of us).  While we will also train from traditional belt holsters, bring your fanny packs, and an old vest or old jacket we can shoot through the pocket and destroy.  200 rounds of ammunition is required to complete the course.  

Prerequisite: Level 2: Defensive Handgun or higher. 

Special Interest Seminars put in-depth focus on individual components and ancillary aspects of defensive firearms use. Seminar emphasis is on skill building and repetition, that the student may gain an appreciable degree of proficiency in the specified skill. The special interest seminars review and refine skills taught in our weekend courses, and are offered to provide the chance to practice specific skills, without having to spend the time to go through an entire weekend class.

These one-day, 6-hour seminars are designed for students to practice what they already have been taught in the prerequisite F.A.S. class, but perhaps have not practiced for a while. They are NOT designed to be stand-alone training. If you have not met the pre-requisites listed for each class, please do not ask for a waiver of the pre-requisite, but rather, please consider taking the class listed as the prerequisite, as it contains instruction on the topics contained in the Special Interest Seminar, plus lots more.
