Pistol 2 leverages the Level 1 foundation by underscoring the use of environment, movement and mindset to achieve an elevated level of quick thinking, judgement and execution. 

During the course, live fire training will induce elevated levels of stress through scenario-based applications. Students will be pushed, often to their limits, to make decisions and respond effectively to events as they develop while maintaining proper firearm fundamentals in order to reduce the threat.

Whether the student is a deploying serviceman, an on-duty law enforcement officer, or primarily focused interested on home defense, each individual will gain valuable knowledge in pistol marksmanship to be applied when it matters most – life and death.
