Pistol 1,2,3 & Classroom

Pistol 1,2,3 are the beginning levels of our Tactical Achievement Objective (TAO) program.  This program will prepare students with firearm safety, proper presentation from the holster, understanding the underlying principles that differentiate defensive shooting from recreational shooting, terminology, shooting fundamentals, functional & efficient movement and weapons manipulations. 

This program is made up of six (6) modules (A-F) broken down into three classes: Pistol 1 (A/B), Pistol 2 (C/D) and Pistol 3 (E/F).  All modules are completed in the lab with hands on shooting practicals.  Our classroom component offers the trainee the opportunity to learn about Firearm Safety Rules, Nomenclature and Cycle of Operations.    OUR SUGGESTION... start with the classroom, then take each class in order....

Two modules are offered during each class and run independently of each other.  At the beginning of each class, there will be a brief presentation in reference to the skill set in which one will be taught followed by drills on those specific skills.

The goal with this training is to gain a strong understanding of fundamental skill sets prior to incorporating major movement to a defensive shooting situation.   This is a prerequisite to the intermediate marksmanship.
