Most Concealed Carry Classes cover safety and shooting fundamentals such as; stance, grip, trigger control, sighting and breath control. Some classes cover the laws pertaining to carrying a handgun and use of force laws, malfunction clearing and cleaning. Once the class is over these newly learned skills are rarely practiced. Most students never really become comfortable and confident with their chosen handgun. Students perform simple shooting drills with instructors coaching students with shooting drills to improve marksmanship. Shooting is static with no movement to develop basic skills. The majority of shooting in these classes involves precision shooting, using both front and rear sights.
In my Defensive Handgun 1.0 Class I introduce students to life safety skills and tactics that are essential in surviving a life threatening encounter. In my Defensive Handgun 2.0 Class you learn tactics and techniques to survive. Students are taught how they will react when they are under a high level of stress when faced with the risk of serious bodily injury or risk of death. Those techniques are different than when gun owners target shoot. It's essential that gun owners continue their training past the initial concealed carry class. There is so much more to learn.
