**YOU MUST HAVE COMPLETED A BASIC PISTOL CLASS BEFORE YOU CAN TAKE THIS COURSE. WE WILL REQUIRE PROOF OF SUCH TRAINING!  Please note, we do NOT cover any of the basic fundamentals in this class, you should already know them and understand them. If not, please consider our Ironclad Beginner Pistol class to get the building blocks needed to advance to this level of training.

We accept IRONCLAD Beginner Pistol and NRA Basic Pistol certifications. If you have proof of a beginner pistol class from another instructor or school, have Military or Law Enforcement experience, or can show proof of general shooting experience, please contact us so we can get you registered. Thank you.

Course Introduction:

In this Progressive Training course we focus on advancing the basic handgun skills and fundamentals learned from beginner pistol. We begin working on tasks such as; unassisted immediate and remedial action drills for malfunctions, holstering and unholstering, reloading drills (tactical reload vs. speed reload), one handed shooting, support hand shooting, shooting with time limits, precision accuracy vs. realistic accuracy, shooting positions, shooting behind cover, room clearing, shooting while moving, etc…

This intermediate level course has very little classroom requirement and will be spent mostly on the range. 500 rounds of ammunition will be shot in this course.

*The only holster types NOT allowed for use in this course are the shoulder rig style holsters.

Upon successful completion of this training course you will receive an official IRONCLAD certificate.
