Basic Optical-Sighted Defensive Pistol

This course is designed around building and solidifying the fundamentals of pistol marksmanship in conjunction with the use of a reflex sight as a primary aiming tool.

Learn how to employ a pistol as a primary defense tool in a controlled environment, mastering the basics, then advancing to more dynamic scenarios and drill-based training. In this course, you will gain a solid understanding of the system, deploying it safely, and accurately and confidently. Although there is a focus on the reflex sight, it is not required for course attendance. Pistols with a Leupold DeltaPoint Pro are available for rent to allow you to experience its benefits. This course requires no prior experience and is perfect for those new to the handgun world as well as the experienced shooter looking to master the fundamentals.
