Introduction to Handguns 2 (IH2)
Building on our Introduction to Handguns 1 (IH1), which is all classroom and no live fire, is IH2 – a four hour class that puts to practice the dry skills learned in IH1. This class is also four hours in length. Cost is $60.
You will fire 100 rounds working on administrative skills such as loading and unloading, drawing and reholstering, and basic marksmanship skills.
At the end of the class we will fire the SC CWP course of fire for record. Students who fire a passing score, should they decide to attend one of our CWP classes within the next three years, will be given a $30 tuition discount AND be exempted from the range portion of the CWP class.
IH1 is a safe, non-threatening way to learn about handguns and ammunition, including safe gun handling, loading and unloading and storage, etc. IH2 puts those skills to practice with live fire, all in a low stress, safe and supervised environment.
Change in the BDH curriculum
At the end of Day 2 we will fire the SC CWP COF for record (if applicable). The same offer listed above for IH2 applies to our BDH students: Come back to a SC CWP class within 3 years and deduct $30 from the tuition and be exempt from the range portion of class.
Reality Based Training
We’ll start offering four hour classes this summer, once or twice a month on weeknights.
Reality based training (RBT) has the student take part in a scenario against a live adversary, generally one of the instructors. We’ll be using AirSoft guns and other training aids.
Not all RBT involves firearms. We’ve conducted training for staff at a few local businesses that used scenarios designed to teach situational awareness and avoidance / deterrence skills.
One of the goals behind RBT is ‘stress inoculation’. Studies show departments that put their officers thru RBT perform significantly better in real life shootings than those that don’t. For example, prior to RBT, it’s not unusual for a department to post qualification scores averaging 90%, but have only a 20% hit rate on the street. After RBT, real life hit percentages more closely mimic qualification scores. In most instances, departments that utilize RBT see hits go up and number of rounds fired per incident go down.
Once you’ve gotten the basics of marksmanship and gun handling down, RBT is the next step in warrior training.
We’re looking forward to this!
