Defensive Handgun Concepts

from 75.00


DTF is proud to present Defensive Handgun Concepts.  This eight hour course explores the key legal concepts and every day carry considerations for armed self-defense.  The morning portion of the course will consist of four hours of classroom instruction and demonstrations.  Students will then transition to the range in the afternoon for three hours of practical application with all engagements shot from concealment.

Students will apply the concepts learned in the classroom on the range by firing over 400 rounds from multiple positions.  Students will learn when they are justified in using deadly for force and how to safely and accurately defend their lives or the lives of others under high stress situations.
