You must have completed Defensive Handgun or Beginner Defensive Handgun for Women or approval from the instructor because of your prior training and experience.   In this course it is imperative that you are already comfortable with your handgun and the operation of it.

What you will need for this class:

  • Firearm:
    Must be reliable and functioning properly. I strongly suggest nothing smaller than a .38 caliber handgun for Advanced Defensive Handgun.
  • Ammunition:
    Absolutely no reloads, factory ammunition only. This is to ensure reliability. You will also need 300 rounds of ammunition for this class.
  • Magazines and Speed Loaders:
    For Advanced Defensive Handgun class a minimum of two extra magazines, for a total of three are recommended. The drills you will perform will require these additional mags. For revolvers it is recommended that you have at least two speed loaders.
  • Holsters:
    No cross draw or shoulder holsters. The holster should hold the gun securely so that it will not fall out when you are running or moving. Ideally you want to train with the holster you will be using when carrying. You should have pouches for magazines and speed loaders to be carried on your weak side. The holster, belt and pouches should be comfortable and fit you.
  • Elbow and Knee Pads:
    These are optional for the class. You will be shooting from the kneeling and prone position.
  • Clothing:
    Rain gear is suggested because we do not stop for the rain unless there is a thunderstorm. Hat or cap to prevent sunburn and to avoid hot brass from burning you. Your shoes should be comfortable and allow you to move without slipping. All clothing should allow you to move freely and must be practical. Do not wear clothing that you are afraid might get damaged.
  • Ear and Eye Protection (Prescription Glasses Fine)

Note: Some types of ammunition are in short supply! Please don’t wait until the last minute to obtain your ammunition.
