TAC Defensive Handgun Course

Date: July 20th 2021

This is an advanced level course. It was developed with a heavy focus on the Defensive Employment of a handgun from concealment. The skills covered in this course will give you the tools to continue your training both on the range and in dry practice at home. The goal of the Defensive handgun course is to introduce the student to stressful real world scenarios when employing a handgun. At the end of the course, students will have a better understanding of how to push their own performance to a new level, and how to remain calm under stress.

TAC takes a more in depth look at how the body works in conjunction with the firearm. Our curriculum was developed so that the student leaves with the knowledge not only to properly use a firearm, but has the tools to safely continue training on their own
