Level 3: Tactical Handgun

This course picks up where Level 2: Defensive Handgun leaves off, and requires a non-negotiable prerequisite of the current F.A.S. Level 2: Defensive Handgun, or both the pre-2015 F.A.S. Defensive Handgun and Tactical Handgun classes. (We understand that many top level trainers teach solid defensive handgun courses that their graduates may wish to satisfy this prerequisite, but please understand that with the revision of our Level 2: Defensive Handgun curriculum to incorporate decision making and legal aftermath material, makes this pre-requisite non-negotiable as Level 3 instruction requires a mastery of skills taught in Level 2).

Range instruction includes:
Mid- and Long-Range Accuracy Drills
360-Degree Awareness and Handgun Drills
Speed Draws, Double and Triple Taps
Hostage Rescue Drills
Low Light Training with Flashlights
Building Search Technique with Flashlights
