Shot Placement and Considerations for Deadly Encounters

It is one thing to carry a firearm for protection but it is another to be able to hit the areas on the threat that effect the quickest stop! Having the best knowledge of the equipment to fit your needs and the know-how to use your firearm effectively is critical. In addition to the role of shot placement in stopping an assailant, armed citizens are obligated not to shoot indiscriminately and endanger others.

In this Threat Anatomy class you will learn about ammunition, calibers, bullet construction, human anatomy, shot placement and shot angles. Recognizing that we train mostly on square ranges and threats do not come on square ranges we use a variety of targets at different angles to help you develop the understanding of angles for shot placement. On the range, we’ll lead you through skill building drills to help you with the development of your critical decision making and shot-placement skills meaning accuracy!
