The course lays the foundation for all other courses. The training concept is based on three elements: safety, handling and hitting the target. To facilitate practical weapons handling, we rely on modern shooting techniques, the same used in most US American schools. Our focus is on the individual course participant. Depending on previous knowledge, each individual participant will be checked and taken to a higher level of shooting. During this course, we will focus on the four basic skills of shooting, especially proper trigger control, enabling a better and faster shooting.
Repetition of basics and advanced handling and shooting techniques with a focus on the tactical pistol use. Participants must have safe weapon handling skills and basic handling techniques. Requirements for the shooter increases. Course content builds on TP1.
Short repetition of skills from TP 1 course (aiming, shooting from ready position, drawing a weapon with and without a round in the chamber, malfunctions (misfire, stow pipe, double feed, empty magazine), tactical reload, one-handed basic manipulation), followed by developing skills as trigger reset, multiple shots, one-handed advanced manipulation, shooting after changing position (kneeling, squatting, prone), shooting after turning, shooting on the move. We will also focus on malfunctions (and) faster target acquisition.
Repetition of basic and advanced weapon handling and introduction of more advanced shooting techniques of the handgun focusing on the tactical use. Participants must have safe weapon handling skills and advanced handling technique. Course content builds on TP 2 (only advanced shooters). Draw with a changing position forward, backward and to the side, trigger reset, multiple shots, onehanded advanced manipulation, shooting after changing position (kneeling, squatting, prone), shooting after turning, shooting on the move, shooting from behind cover) followed by developing advanced skills as the shots fire on multiple targets, advanced one-handed shooting and handling (drawing, loading, malfunctions), shooting after physical exercise and under stress. The program is subject to change without prior notice. We will shoot standard exercises within narrow time limits, such as "Typewriter" or "3/3/3/3" or other exercises by Jeff Cooper, Gabe Suarez, Kyle Lamb, Pat McNamara, Paul Howe. Introduction to low-light/no-light . TP3 is challenging, even for the experienced shooter.
Repetition of advanced weapon handling and more advanced shooting techniques of the handgun with a focus on self-defense and short-distance shooting. Participants must have safe weapon handling skills and advanced handling technique. Course content builds on TP 3 (only advanced shooters). Short repetition of skills from TP 3 course followed by developing advanced skills as the concealed carry drawing, shooting on very short distance. Emphasis will be operating and shooting with only the weak side hand. Also, loading the gun and malfunction clearing are carried out with one hand (regular exercise with the weak side also improves the motoric function of the strong side).
Transition from primary to secondary weapon system (for this dummy rifles or carbines will be used).
