Combat Pistol Level 1

  • Lonesome Oak Guns and Range 2106 West Centerton Boulevard Centerton, AR, 72719 United States (map)

Experience training through a security context.  Learn how to shoot, when to shoot, and what to do afterwards.  Training conducted by experienced intelligence, law enforcement, and special operations veterans.

TOPIC: Most firearm courses on the market today are based on military and law enforcement training methods of shooting.  While these courses have value, they are woefully inadequateto prepare the average citizen for a deadly encounter on the street.

That’s because a majority of threats dynamics that military or law enforcement members face are different than those experienced by the private individual. Unfortunately, much of the training available today has ignored this, until now.

Contemplating the actual threat dynamics that civilians in an urban environment face, this course will equip you with the proper knowledge and skills to effectively defend yourself with your firearm in the event of deadly situation.  We will elevate your performance, boost your self-confidence, and will prepare you to deal with threats realistically.  You will learn How to Shoot, When to Shoot, and What to Do Afterwards.
