Intro to Defensive Shooting – Cortez, CO

Date(s) - 04/16/2016

Four Corners Rifle and Pistol Club

We highly recommend the Intro to Defensive Shooting (ITDS) be taken in addition to the CCW Course to continue on with realistic defensive handgun training. This is ideal for those who aren’t able to attend a full Defenders Series. The ITDS consists of learning or improving a natural stance, proper handling, draw stroke, recoil management, intuitive unsighted and sighted fire, and more, creating combat accuracy while building speed and efficiency that works well with what the body does naturally when in fear and under high stress. Our students leave the range with realistic defensive fighting knowledge, experience, and confidence as well as having a great time.

Items needed for the ITDS:
– Handgun
– Holster
– 3 magazines (if using a semi-automatic handgun)
– 300 – 450 rounds of ammunition for semi-autos; 200-250 if using a revolver
– Eye & ear protection
– any non-alcoholic liquids to drink and any food / snacks you might want

This four to five hour training course will challenge the students, from the beginner to anyone who already has extensive firearms training. All will end having learned quite a lot and with new or refreshed defensive fighting handgun skills.


Registration are closed for this event.


“After reflecting for a couple of days on last weekends course, I’ve come to appreciate how special it really was. You are a great teacher who is passionate about your message and passing on your skills. I was uncomfortable at times on the range but you slowly and “kindly” moved me out of my comfort zone showing me what I needed to learn. I’ve already been spreading the word about Defenders and will be back to refresh my shooting skills and classroom info in the future.”
