About the Event

Close Quarter Defensive Pistol takes the student out of his comfort zone and removes that “safe personal space” we are used to working with.

The student will learn how to draw, manipulate, shoot, and reload with confined spaces and limited distances.

This class will help build skills, techniques and confidence for the experienced or intermediate shooter. This is also a great opportunity for the advanced shooter to refresh and practice their skills as well as learn something new.

Students should dress as they normally do in their day to day concealed carry environment.


All students must have a valid current New York State issued pistol permit, understand and be able to successfully maintain all shooting safety fundamentals. Experience with working to and from and shooting from a holster, engaging multiple targets, and various shooting positions highly recommended.

Start time is 9:30am.

Students are expected to arrive no later than 9:15am for set up and range safety briefing.


The class curriculum contains:

– Basic pistol safety fundamentals.

– Range safety, orientation and proper range protocol.

– Shooting fundamentals (grip, stance, breath control, trigger control, hold control, sight picture and sight alignment, follow through).
