Defensive Pistol 3
April 19 • 10:30 am - 2:30 pm$125
4 Hours – $125
Prerequisites: Defensive Pistol 2
“Half the day is night.” Most crime happens at night.
Most defensive pistol encounters occur in low-light environments. Defensive Pistol 3, teaches students to apply the skills learned in previous Defensive Pistol courses including no or low-light situations. Students will learn various flashlight techniques. Students will also begin to master one-handed shooting with both their dominant and nondominant hands. Shooters will learn to draw, shoot, reload, and clear malfunctions while operating a light source. Triangle Shooting Academy’s unique range facility allows students to safely participate in live-fire training in near total darkness during this course. Students will leave this class with confidence in their ability to safely and responsibly succeed in a low-light defensive encounter. As with all of the Defensive Pistol courses, if you have received your Concealed Handgun Permit we strongly recommend that you take this course. Defensive Pistol 3 is a prerequisite for Defensive Pistol 4.
