If the class as a general whole shows high proficiency in the above areas quickly, we will move into using a handgun with speed while also still engaging in precision.

Sunday will become more fast-paced, working on a deliberate, consistent and quick draw from the holster, preferably concealed, at increasingly difficult targets from varying distances, shooting multiple rounds at speeds while maintaining accuracy, transitioning targets, shooting in movement and while moving, and more.
