Handgun Speed and Accuracy – Cameo, CO


Handgun Speed and Accuracy is perfect for the civilian, military, LEO shooter, or competitor who wants to develop speed and accuracy from the holster. This is an excellent chance for those who seek to refine their skill in areas beyond where most training goes.
This course is intended for those who already have a decent degree of skill in basic handgun fundamentals, although we will spend time there as needed.

As the title says, this day will focus on building the ability to get an expedient and accurate first shot from the holster. We will then build on that skill as we add follow up shots and tracking  sights, while also being as accurate as the varying targets dictate. We’ll work on accuracy first, then build in speed that is efficient in technique.

We recommend concealed carry for this class, however, open carry holsters are perfectly acceptable.

This class will be a thoughtful and careful training session in order to build skill at explosive speeds. We will focus on achieving repeatable success for each shooter, while developing expert nuance into grip, stance and platform. Shooters will then refine their draw strokes while maintaining high accuracy at varying distances. We will also have a focus on helping the students understand how to diagnose their own work so that they can continue refining their abilities long after this class.

If you’ve not attended a previous course with us or do not demonstrate solid proficiency at the beginning of this training course, the instructor can, at their discretion, request you complete a standardized proficiency in handling and shooting test. If that test is not passed, at the instructor's sole discretion, you will not be allowed to attend the rest of the training day, however, you will be invited to move into one of our Handgun Fundamentals courses at no cost. At the same time, the fee for this course will not be refunded.

A quality holster is a must in this course, if you aren’t sure if your holster is of acceptable quality, contact us as soon as possible, because if you need a good holster, it will take some time to order one and get it shipped to you.

If you want to get a quality holster before this class, feel free to contact us OR Brent Hickmon of Haven Defense Co. (970-987-3471) We will help you select a high-quality holster.
