Defensive Pistol

The Defensive Pistol League is held on Friday Nights starting at 6:00PM. It is held on the indoor pistol range. There is an emphasis on the skills that would be needed if you are involved in a situation where you need to use your firearm in defensive of your life, life of another or to prevent sexual penetration. There are three different scenarios that the shooter will participate in. Heavy emphasis is placed on Shoot and move techniques. 

The league requires shooters to draw from a holster and perform at least one reload for each of the 3 scenarios. Recommended items for this league are: Center Fire Pistol in a defensive caliber (9mm,.40, .45, .380), the ability to shoot at least 12 rounds, strong side hip holster, (no cross-draw, no shoulder holsters, no pocket), magazine pouches or speed loaders on the belt. All magazines are limited to 10 rounds regardless of the capacity.

We welcome and will work with people of all experience levels and make accommodation for the equipment for each person that attends.

The shooter will be asked to help setup, paste targets and teardown the scenarios targets.

Cost is $5.00 per week.
