Drawing From Concealment:
Now that you have your license, it's time to take the next step and ensure you have a foundation for engaging from concealment.
This new and improved one day class is an introduction to address the challenges of drawing a firearm from concealment for self-defense purposes. It sets the groundwork for the Advanced Concealed Carry class. This class is designed for those who have yet to begun to train for concealment draw, however are already started in firearms. Each student must demonstrate solid safety skills and be able to efficiently operate their gun during live fire.
This class is ONLY available to those who have already lawfully obtained their CWL (concealed weapons license). All students are expected to present proof of their license to join the class. The license must be current, not expired, and not revoked.
At the culmination of this class, students will have completed the basic concealment draw fundamentals to include understanding safe effective holster work, safely overcoming a cover garment to engage a deadly threat. They will have the opportunity to discover potential flaws in their gear and carry style, which will help them readjust for effective carrying.
Students will engage in shooting one handed and two handed shooting drills. Participants will receive thorough guidance with each exercise, then feedback for continued improvement.
Exercises in drawing from:
*Precautions will be taken to ensure safety, and adjustments will be made to exercises for those who have physical limitations.
Students will be also be introduced to moving while shooting, and how to draw and shoot one handed.
All students will bring their own gear, firearm, and approx 200 rounds of factory ammunition appropriate for their firearm. Target ammunition is fine. No need to bring your defensive ammunition unless you would like to try it out during the course.
ALL students must bring a holster and belt regardless of other carry systems they use. Students with a belt and holster carry system experience the greatest results in the class. Be sure that your carry holster was chosen to match your hand dominance and IWB (In the Waist Band). OWB (Out of the Waist Band) is fine if you have a cover garment to conceal the gun.
Those who use a belly band, please be sure it is quality gear that will withstand the length of the course.
The class is held entirely outside, under and out of cover. We shoot rain or shine. Please be sure to bring something to drink and eat. Wear appropriate apparel for the weather and outdoor activity. I recommend rain gear such as a poncho, rain coat, umbrella if you wish. Feel free to bring folding chairs, coolers, etc.
Student apparel needs for the class include: baseball caps, t-shirts, sturdy belt, and belt looped pants, and closed toed shoes are required. Wear something you don't mind getting dirt on.
Prior to class, students must contact me to let me know the manufacturer, model and caliber of their carry gun.
Heavy emphasis will be placed on gun safety throughout the class.
All firearms must be empty and enclosed in a bag, case, or box upon arrival for training.
#1: DO NOT arrive with your firearm loaded.
#2: DO NOT arrive carrying the firearm in your carry position.
#3: DO NOT bring old, remanned, reloaded, or improperly stored ammunition.
#4: DO NOT bring old, damaged, poorly maintained firearms.
Any student unable or unwilling to follow directions, or who does not appear to be of sound mind, will be removed from the class for the safety of all.
