Training Solutions for High Threat Environments


Defense 360 Firearms Courses

Not Just Another Shooting Class! These are the courses you will be taking.

Owning a firearm and shooting at the range is time well spent becoming familiar with your gun but if the weapon is intended to protect your life or those of your loved ones, there is no substitution for professional training. The Defense 360 series is designed to instill confidence and increase your proficiency in the use of a firearm under very stressful conditions. You will not only learn marksmanship and combat accuracy but also how to develop your own threat matrix, reaction time, and alternate force options.

We will also teach you when NOT to shoot and how to respond after a deadly force encounter. Perhaps one of the most important skills we will teach you is how to practice by yourself. As the series progresses you will be faced with increasingly complex situations and learn the appropriate responses to them. In addition to shooting skills, each level will offer a comprehensive look into threats facing our society and options in dealing with them using realistic based examples and force on force drills.

The Defensive 360 series is not about wearing equipment that you won't have readily available in your normal civilian life nor is it about shooting as many rounds into paper as fast as you can. It is about learning how to protect yourself and your families in times of crisis using the tools you would normally have available, and making the appropriate decisions to respond to them.

This course will train you in the basics of employing a pistol for the purpose of defending yourself and others.  We will cover the basic principles, techniques and procedures of defensive shooting including: when to shoot, combat accuracy, reloading under stress, weapon malfunctions, target acquisition, shooting on the move and more.  Multiple target engagements, quick reaction drills, mindset, instinctive shooting, tactical care of the gunshot victim, and other drills will develop the skills you will need in the event you have to legally engage a lethal threat to you or your loved ones.  This course satisfies the requirements for the Defense 360 Pistol class.
