AT ARM’S LENGTH, IT’S NOT JUST A SHOOTING, IT’S A FIGHT!

Close Quarter Pistol is a 2-day course.

COST: $595

Class size limited to 12.

Close Quarter Pistol addresses the fact that gunfights often occur at distances much closer than shooters would like to think. At arm’s length, compressed reaction times and the presence of contact distance weapons like knives, bludgeons, and even fists can dramatically affect the outcome of the encounter. Gun retention is yet another problem specific to this fast-paced, hyper-violent range of combat.
