Course P200 – Combat Pistol is a one-day (8 hour) course of basic pistol instruction that is perfectly suited for novice students and seasoned shooters alike. The course focuses on the professional employment of an individual sidearm with drills that are authored for shooters wearing tactical equipment and that forge an offensive mindset. This is a fighting class that teaches the use of the sidearm as tool to solve the tactical problem.
Students in this course participate in guided instruction, practical exercises, as well as live-fire examinations. Tactics and techniques covered include safe employment, shooting from cover, shooting while moving, tactical reloading, and marksmanship at intermediate distances. The end-state of the course for the student is functional literacy in the employment of a sidearm in a tactical environment.
