The Amtac Shooting Pistol 1 Course 

This one-day course is designed to make you more capable by focusing on pistol fundamentals. As protectors of our families, we want to reach the "unconscious competence" level of proficiency. The way we get to that level is by deliberate fundamentals training with feedback. This course will cover: mindset, loading procedures, concealed draw stroke, combative weapons retention shooting, reloads, shooting with speed and accuracy, clearing malfunctions and tourniquet application.
