Restrictions: Course Open to all legal participants. NOT intended for the untrained marksman. Students will be expected to have attended PISTOL-1 or show proficiency equivalent to that Level of training. Students must be able to perform immediate action drills and be able to engage targets up to 25m with their selected weapons.
Our Pistol 2 course is designed for intermediate shooters looking to enhance their foundation in marksmanship fundamentals. This course is also an excellent option for experienced marksman looking to refresh their fundamentals.
Instructor: Todd VanLangen (SF retired)
During this course, Shooters will learn:
(Dry and Warm Fire): Weapon safety, stance, Sight alignment and trigger SQUEEZE, immediate actions and weapon functions. All students will be given some time to Dry fire and get warm before firing live rounds. The warm fire phase will culminate in stationary exercises designed to enforce fundamentals
(Dynamic Fire 1): This live fire phase focuses on creating effective and safe pistol marksmanship. Students will learn how to engage targets on the move and from non-standard firing positions. The live fire culminates in a pass/fail hands on safety exam which requires students to engage with live ammunition with 1:1 instructor/student trigger safety evaluation for score (hits).
(Dynamic Fire 2): After students successfully complete the performance evaluation they will have a chance to engage targets in a scenario based (dynamic) setting. While NOT officially part of the pass/fail curriculum, the dynamic fire 2 portion of the training gives the students a chance to apply the fundamentals of marksmanship in a series of challenging and rapid fire scenarios. The dynamic course is designed to send students home with confidence in their skills.
