Close Quarter Pistol

April 30-May 1, 2022
(9:00 am - 4:00 pm)

Round Count: 450

It’s a grave mistake to assume that shooting at distance makes shooting up close that much easier. At arm’s length, a whole new set of dynamics are present. Contact distance weapons, and even fists and feet are potential game changers in this fast-paced, hyper-violent realm of combat. Based on the curriculum detailed in our popular book, gunFight! – An Integrated Approach to Shooting and Fighting in Close Quarters, this course picks up where most shooting courses leave off. The emphasis is not on shooting but rather fighting with your gun. In this course, close quarter shooting theory and technique is combined with elements from our Unarmed Combatives and Firearm Retention and Disarming courses.
