Handgun Level I, II, and III Training Bundle

Handgun Level I, II, and III Training Bundle

Tactical Defense Institute combines three levels of handgun training into one, three-day format.

The course introduces students to the fundamentals of modern defensive shooting, handgun familiarization and safe weapons handling techniques. In the classroom, the course begins with deadly force issues, what to do if you are involved in a shooting, post shooting trauma, socialization, mind set and personal assessment. On the range students work on ready position, grip, trigger management and sight alignment. Safety is constantly stressed. Class concludes with weapon care and maintenance. Firearms are available for use at no cost. The combination of this class and Level II covers Ohio's CCW training requirements.

Begins with a tactical planning and awareness lecture and a review of Level I fundamentals. Learn smooth draw, reloading techniques, malfunction clearing and shooting on-the-move. Mental conditioning is stressed in all courses.

Begin with a review of Level II techniques. Level III adds more movement and off-hand shooting. Develop your tactical skills with the use of cover and concealment, use of space and structure clearing. Class culminates with a live fire house clearing exercise on shoot/no-shoot decision making targets.

Ammunition requirements: 1800 rounds minimum (no steel core or steel jacketed ammo permitted during Level II and III).

2010 class dates are: April 16-18, May 14-16, June 4-6, June 11-13, August 6-8, Sept 24-26, Oct 8-10, and Nov 5-7. For more information or to apply for a class, visit www.tdiohio.com.
