Weaponcraft Wednesday: Pistol Series

Weaponcraft Wednesday: Pistol Series

  • Price: $25.00

For the July/August 2020 Weaponcraft Wednesday Series, we will be holding classes on Wednesday & Thursday. Wednesday classes begin on 7-15-20, and Thursday classes begin on 7-16-20. The cap for each session is 6 participants.

The Weapon Craft Wednesday Pistol Series at Vance Outdoors is designed to help an individual improve and maintain good pistol skills by breaking down the fundamentals into bite size sessions over the course of several weeks rather than in one class. Each session will cover one aspect of the fundamentals of pistol shooting and each class will build upon the one before it. Which gives shooters more repetitions and practice on each part before moving on to the next skill. While it is not a requirement to take all sessions consecutively, it is highly recommended to take the series in sequence, especially if you plan on taking any class in the Defensive Handgun series.

The price for each session is $25. Students will need a reliable pistol, strong side holster, spare magazines (we recommend at least 3), magazine carrier, sturdy belt, eye and ear protection, and 150 rounds of ammunition per session.

Course Outline

Week One (July 15th & July 16th): Draw and Presentation
How to get the pistol out and on target efficiently and consistently as well as returning it to the holster safely.

Week Two (July 22nd & July 23rd): Reloads
One magazine may not be enough to stop a threat, so this session will focus on performing smooth and efficient reloads.

Week Three (July 29th & July 30th): Malfunctions
How to handle a situation when the gun goes “click” instead of “bang” and get it right back into the fight.

Week Four (August 5th & August 6th): Single Hand
This session will introduce the techniques to shoot using one hand, whether that is because you are using the other to call 911, or getting your family to safety.

Week Five (August 12th & August 13th): Multiple Targets
Statistics say that most encounters involve more than one aggressor. This session is to develop and practice techniques to identify and engage multiple threats.

Week Six (August 19th & August 20th): Movement
This session introduces movement and how to react when a threat comes from the side or from behind. It will give you techniques for “getting off the X” and how to stay on target while moving.

Week Seven (August 26th & August 27th): Drills
This is a night to test yourself to see how far you have come from Week One and to see some drills that will help reinforce the skills learned from all of the sessions in this series. Drills will measure your performance, by balancing speed and accuracy.
