Pistol Craft: Austere Conditions
BEFORE YOU REGISTER FOR THIS COURSE, YOU MUST HAVE ALREADY REGISTERED FOR AND/OR COMPLETED PISTOLCRAFT I. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Amateurs practice until they get it right, professionals practice until they can no longer get it wrong, and masters never stop practicing. Good training emphasizes fundamentals and practical skills, and excellent training exposes students to the worst scenarios possible. In Pistolcraft: Austere Conditions, we will put you through just that. Many fights begin initiated by the enemy, but nonetheless, they must be ended by you. In this class, you will be in a constant state of deprivation. This is some of the most realistic training you can get, and after you complete this class, your mental conditioning for defending yourself and your loved ones will be one step ahead when the time comes. If you have not been in a physical fight before this class, you will by the end of this class.
You will be tested in this class mentally and physically. Be warned, you will be trained to a point of failure, and then guided through the process of success. This class will challenge what you already know, and also challenge many perceptions of fighting. Truth comes from trial, and the goal of this class is to steel you mentally and physically for when you will be required to fight for your life. You will gain confidence, bar none.
During this class you will cover: how to finish fights despite being injured, treat life-threatening injuries, gunfight analysis, medical and anatomical lectures, diminished motor skills, extreme close quarters shooting, physical control techniques, managing bystanders and onlookers during a gunfight, hostage shots, use of cover, low-light shooting, shooting with a loss of vision, and distance shooting under stress. Training is only open to legal, US Citizens or permanent residents (green card holders) per ITAR (22 CFR §§120-130)
