Defensive Hand Gun Class

West Manchester Township Farmers & Sportsman Association 

Course Description:

 This course is designed for basic defensive handgun training.  Students must show verification of basic handgun training prior to taking this class. You will learn basic skills to defend yourself and family in the event of an attack. Training will include awareness, shooting concepts, using cover and concealment, basic legal issues and much more. This course is at a faster pace and requires the student to be comfortable with their handgun, its operation, safety and to be able to shoot accurately up to 15 yards.

 Though this is not a certified NRA course, you will be taught all the same techniques and will learn the training drills to defend yourself. This is only the beginning of your defensive handgun training. It is suggested that you don’t bring your show gun and bring the weapon that you would use in self-defense. Your gun will be used hard in this class.  Magazine’s will be dropped to the ground during reloads etc. Remember, this class is for your safety and is not for the beginner.

Class will be held to a maximum of 10 students.  Registration will be on a first come first served basis.
