This class teaches additional practical applications for those who carry concealed handguns.  It's a great class for those with new Concealed Carry handgun permits but limited follow-up training.  It is NOT the class which qualifies you to obtain a NC Concealed Carry permit.

This is a Level 2 class.  Successful completion of Practical Concealed Carry Level 1 or advance approval of the instructor is required to attend this class.

    PURPOSE: Provide the student with additional knowledge on which to build their skills in the art of self-defense with a handgun. Students will leave this course with an intermediate tool kit of drills and practical knowledge, to include weak hand shooting, unconventional shooting positions and shooting on the move.
    • Topics: 

    1. Safety Briefing
    2. Range Commands
    3. Class Philosophy - Mindset, Situational Awareness, training with purpose, efficiency. 
    4. Review of weapons system choices. 
    5. Fundamentals of Marksmanship - Stance, Grip, Sight Picture, Trigger Control, Recoil Management, Running the Slide, Press-Check
    6. Drawing from holster and safe re-holstering
    7. Dry-fire and Live-fire drills, including  
      1. Ammunition Management - tactical and emergency reloads. 
      2. Recoil Management
      3.  Malfunction Clearing
      4. Weak hand shooting
      5. Multiple target engagement
      6. Unconventional shooting positions
      7. Use of cover and concealment
      8. Shooting on the move
    8. Debrief/After-Action Discussion
    1. An open mind, willingness to take instruction and the ability to challenge pre-conceived notions we’ve all learned from YouTube instructors and Hollywood.  This course teaches only practical, real-world techniques.
    2. A functional, compact or duty-sized semi-automatic handgun with at least three (3) magazines (Glock 19 or larger).  Subcompact (Glock 26, SIG P938) handguns or revolvers are permitted, but discouraged, as you will spend likely more time loading magazines than shooting. If shooting a subcompact, at least six (6) magazines are recommended.
    3. A strong-side holster with a sturdy belt and multiple-magazine carrier.  Appendix carry, small of back, cross-draw, purses, belly bands and shoulder holsters will not be permitted in this class; however, all these forms of carry will be discussed.  It is more efficient and safer to teach the class with everyone using the same gear.  For safety reasons, no holsters with active retention (SERPA holsters) will be permitted.  A molded Kydex holster manufactured specifically for your model of firearm is highly recommended, but leather holsters are also acceptable.  If you are in doubt, please contact the instructor prior to class.
    4. At least four hundred (400) rounds of factory-loaded, copper-jacketed ammunition.  No reloaded ammunition or steel-core (armor piercing) rounds are permitted.
    5. Red-dot optics are permitted (and in fact encouraged).  Red dot sights should be sighted in at ten (10) yards prior to class.  If you have questions about how to properly sight-in your optic, contact the instructor prior to class.
    6. Weather conditions are often rapidly changing in North Carolina, so please dress appropriately and in layers.  Class is held rain or shine, as you cannot pick the weather for your gunfight.  Closed-toe shoes are required. 
    7. A packed lunch is recommended – food options are limited in the DPRC area and lunch will be held to a strict 1-hour time limit.
    8. Water, lots of it.  Hydration is important, as this will be an active class.
