Handgun Fundamentals – Okeechobee, FL – Oct. 24th, 2024

This Handgun Fundamentals is perfect for the brand new or novice handgun user who wants to grow ability, confidence and skill in their handling, use, and shooting a handgun safely and accurately.

It is ALSO excellent for the veteran handgun user who wants to revisit the fundamental to increase and fine-tune their skills, as the fundamentals are foundational to all good shooting. Even if you see yourself as a good shooter, you absolutely will learn in this class and it will change some or much of how you handle and shoot, causing guaranteed improvements that will surprise you.

We will focus on safe, efficient handling and accuracy with a handgun, building your confidence in the use of and shooting a handgun.
If you have a safe or quality holster for your handgun, you will also be learning how to draw and re-holster correctly and safely. If you do not have holster for your handgun, that is not a problem.

If you want to get a quality holster for before this class, we enthusiastically endorse Brent Hickmon of Haven Defense Co. (970-987-3471) for an excellent, custom-made holster. Brent is also an instructor with Defenders USA; he and his lovely wife make holsters on a full-time basis for incredible shooters all over America.

This is not a fast-paced class; it is a thoughtful, careful training session in order to build skill and confidence. We will focus completely on getting the basic fundamentals exactly correct and repeatable for each shooter, with safe, correct handling and accuracy as a result of good fundamentals.
