Defensive Handgun: Close Quarters

Defensive Handgun: Close Quarters

  • Price: $100.00

Prerequisite: Defensive Handgun Restrictive Environments

This is the fourth level of training in the Vance Outdoors Defensive Handgun Series. This class will bring all the elements from the previous 3 class together while adding in what to do if you find yourself in an encounter within 10 feet or less.

Defensive Handgun Close Quarters will teach you how to manipulate your firearm when you are too close to perform a full draw stroke or be in ideal conditions. Statistics say that you are most likely to find yourself in an encounter at 21 feet or less, with the less being 7 feet or closer. Many homes can create this close encounter or being in high populated situations like at restaurants or festivals.

For this class you will need a reliable pistol, strong side holster, magazine carrier, spare magazines (we recommend at least 3), sturdy belt, a reliable handheld flashlight, eye and ear protection, and 350 rounds of ammunition. A weapon mounted light is optional for this class.
