Course P400 – Pistol Master is a three-day (24 hour) course of advanced pistol instruction that is perfectly suited for novice students and seasoned shooters alike. The course begins with the very basics of pistol handling and marksmanship; but quickly progresses to advanced pistol techniques. This is a marksmanship and fighting class combined that teaches all aspects of the defensive employment of the pistol.
Students in this course participate in guided instruction, practical exercises, as well as live-fire examinations. Tactics and techniques covered include combat safety, fighting stance, looking for trouble, shooting from cover, shooting while moving, shooting from non-standard positions, tactical reloading, and marksmanship at intermediate distances. The end-state of the course for the student is repeatable proficiency in the defensive employment of a handheld sidearm.
All shooters in the class benefit from guided instruction by seasoned professionals who modify their approach to match the proficiency of the student. The structured format of live-fire practice drills allows shooters from varying backgrounds to each gain ability in the class; often at levels higher than they may have felt possible. Through the duration of its three-day format, the course begins with basic manipulation and handling drills that quickly progress by adding speed, distance, and complexity. The pace of the course is timed for mastery of the pistol and its employment by starting with bedrock fundamentals and then adding the dimension of decision making in the tactical environment.
