Protective Pistol 1 builds your default response to a lethal threat. This 10 hour class gives you everything you need and nothing you don’t – by the end of your training you have an effective response you can confidently call upon in a crisis.

This course is both physically and mentally demanding, with minimal “down time”. If you require an inordinate amount of instructor attention simply to maintain basic safety, you will be removed from the firing line. This neither merits a certificate of course completion nor a refund.

You MUST HAVE the following to participate: ballistic eye protection, filtered hearing protection, sturdy belt, holster, magazine carrier, clothing to conceal your pistol, semi-auto pistol of at least .380 caliber, three spare magazines (more are better), 300 rounds of factory FMJ ammunition, weapon lubricant, and a tourniquet

You need to bring lunch.
