Pre-enrollment is strictly required: It is not okay to just show up. You must pre-register, either over the phone or online. The classes fill very quickly so we recommend you call well in advance. Confirmation information will be sent to you by mail, including a map to our location along with any other information you need before attending class. Please note the following details:
- Women who are pregnant or nursing may not participate in live-fire training, due to risks from lead exposure and loud noise.
- Each student will be required to sign a statement that they are legally entitled to own handguns prior to participation in the class.
Unless you have mastered shooting a handgun without flinching, gaining skills in the other areas of defensive handgun use is very difficult. With this in mind, students are drilled and coached on how to shoot very accurately with the handgun. Not very sexy, but very necessary!
Shooting at moving targets and shooting while moving are two of the more difficult aspects of defensive handgunning. It is also one that is nearly impossible to practice on a public range, so this special interest seminar gives F.A.S. graduates the chance to refresh these skills under the watchful eye of our instructors.
This special interest seminar is the most action-packed, full of smoke-and-brass seminar we teach. At completion, the student should be able to do one second draws, double taps in a quarter of a second, and engage 3 targets from the holster in under 2 seconds. Not only pushing the envelope for speed, but also acceptable accuracy, with emphasis on A-zone hits for all shots fired.
