“We’ve taken a few classes in the past but none were as comprehensive, enjoyable, and more importantly beneficial than HG I-III.” – B. O’Donnell Sr. September 2019
Level I Handgun: This course introduces you to the fundamentals of modern defensive shooting, handgun familiarization, and safe weapons handling techniques. In the classroom we begin 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 you will work on ready position, grip, trigger management, and sight alignment. Safety is constantly stressed. Class concludes with weapon care and maintenance.
No firearm required. Firearms are available for use at no cost. If you do not already own a gun, please let us help you find the gun that is the best fit for you before you purchase one.
Level II Handgun: This course begins with a tactical planning and awareness lecture and a review of Level I fundamentals. You will learn smooth draw, reloading techniques, malfunction clearing, and shooting on-the-move. Mental conditioning is stressed in all our courses.
Attending Levels I & II will exceed the Ohio CCW training requirements
Level III Handgun: We begin with a review of Level II techniques. The class 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 exercises on shoot/no-shoot decision making targets.
We encourage students to take Levels I, II and III in the three day format. For most students it is the best learning experience. We recognize that for various reasons many students may choose to do one or two days at a time. Therefore, we offer this class in any combination you may choose. You may join any of the classes at your convenience.
