The 1-day Handgun defense 2 course is an adaptive course designed to give the intermediate shooters the proper handgun fundamentals. Starting with students’ mindset, the class focuses on the foundation of accuracy, acceptable accuracy under stress, and how to balance speed and accuracy. The course develops critical skills using a handgun. The Defense handgun 2 course teaches students to operate their handgun at a higher level, providing them with practical and retainable skills intended to increase their level of effectiveness and decrease reaction time.
