Reactive Pistol Concepts is a 1-day course designed to introduce defensive shooting practitioners to a method of shooting that will allow for effective, fight-stopping hits at speeds that were previously not thought possible.

In a collaborative and supportive environment, attendees will undertake a variety of structured exercises designed to increase speed and accuracy, demonstrate individual effectiveness, and identify limitations and issues for further improvement. All shooting will take place at ranges simulating the parameters of actual violent encounters, and attendees are not required to be “expert” shooters prior to the course.

The only non-negotiable demand of students is that they


Each attendee will leave the course with both electronic and physical copies of the targets used for the course as well as instructions for future use in individual skill-building.

Topics covered will include:

Universal Safe Gun Handling Rules

Reactive Shooting vs. Precision Shooting, and why

Target-based training methods

Accurate speed shooting

Shooting in tempo

Effective recoil control

Dominant & Support hand-only shooting, and the rationale for it

Firing from awkward positions

Firing while moving

Threat Discrimination

Tactics for dealing with multiple threats and “no-shoots” in the environment

Stress Inoculation

…and much more.

There will be a testing period involving a relatively brief but demanding course of fire focused on meeting qualification standards and resolving scenarios based on actual incidents, all conducted with concealed-carry handguns and related support gear. A record of student performance will be provided to add to permanent history of competence.
