This course is in an intensified format that will continue to improve your shooting ability and heighten your skills. An excellent course if you are looking to tune up your skills or work toward a Graduate or Distinguished Graduate certificate but don`t have the time to repeat the entire Four Day course.
The entire course is spent on the range, as this course has no lecture material or tactical simulators. Emphasis is placed on fine tuning your gun handling and greatly improving your speed and accuracy. You can expect to drastically reduce the time it takes to present and fire a controlled pair of shots or single, precision shots. All training builds to a skills evaluation done from a concealed holster under time pressure at the end of the course for Graduate and Distinguished Graduate certification in Defensive Handgun.
“Pocket Pistols” which Front Sight defines as any handgun smaller than a Glock 26 (roughly 6.4" slide length and 4.2" frame height) are not allowed due to being difficult to manipulate, painful to shoot, and often less safe because the user is more likely to cover their support hand or other body parts with the muzzle. Muzzle attachments such as compensators and extended magazines do not change the overall dimensions of that weapon. We are basing our size parameters off of the factory condition of your weapon. In other words, if you added one of these items to your handgun and the size of the weapon has technically changed, does not mean that this weapon is now excluded from our pocket pistol policy.
Holsters must be on the belt, correctly fit the weapon, completely cover the trigger guard, remain open when the weapon is removed, not allow the weapon to cover the shooter’s body, and not have a trigger guard retention device (such as the Blackhawk Serpa model and others). NO thigh rigs, cross-draw, etc.
A minimum of three magazines and two single or one double magazine pouch is required. Magazine pouches worn on the belt on the side opposite the handgun. Speed loader holders worn in front of the holster.
Electronic hearing protection is mandatory and is available at the Front Sight Pro Shop or numerous retailers.
