Defensive firearms training is not just about shooting hundreds of rounds. It is practicing real skills like reloading and clearing malfunctions under stress.

We will simulate this stress with timed drills. But you are also responsible for every round you fire in a self-defense situation. So you must also accurately hit your target 100% of the time.

Defensive shooting requires a keen balance of speed and precision. Mastering defensive shooting takes practice — lots of it. But it is a skill that, when well developed, can save you, a loved one or an innocent bystander in an actual deadly force scenario. This test will force you to find that balance of speed and precision under pressure.
