Pistol Step 3 Redline Defensive Pistol Course


Class sizes are small, 4-10 students per class!!  This allows us to answer everyone's questions and get through the academics and practical exercises of the training skills we teach.

We operate at a private range, this allows us the ability to communicate and direct students much more easily when compared to public ranges.  

Weather permitting class time will be held outside.

We shoot rain or shine, there is no such thing as bad weather, only poor preparation.  But we won't have class during blizzards, hurricanes, nor if a "state of emergency" is declared.  Rain, snow, or sun, be prepared. 


You have a responsibility to yourself, and your family to protect and defend your life and theirs.  This class will thoroughly teach you how to defend yourself and loved ones with your pistol.  The pistol is portable, concealable, and effective when marksmanship is applied quickly, accurately and decisively.  The material in this class provides you with the necessities you will need in order to survive an attack on your body or your loved ones.     

This class will require you to confront your deficiencies, but it will also instill confidence that you can and will prevail when the time comes.  The course material includes an extremely wide-range of techniques, drills, and skills.  You will be guided through proper marksmanship, draw and presentation of the pistol, mental aspects of fighting such as attitude and purpose, pistol manipulations with one and two hands, stoppage clearances, and shooting while moving.

You will also experience several drills in which you will negotiate obstacles while shooting, fire from unconventional positions, shoot and hit targets at what many consider rifle distances, and shoot a confidence course designed to challenge both new and experienced shooters alike.

Brief classroom sessions will be interspersed throughout the course with lectures focused on gunfight analysis and tendencies. Beginners and experts alike will benefit from the depth of material this class offers.
