    The DTI Defensive Handgun Course is designed to prepare the responsible, adult gun owner to handle, maintain, safely store, and use their firearm safely, responsibly, correctly, and effectively, so that they are able to successfully handle nearly any personal protection situation.

    An increasing number of people are seeking to improve their defensive shooting skills and expand their knowledge about the use of firearms for personal protection.

    Here in the United States, many states are currently expanding access to concealed carry permits. DTI classes offer permit holders and those who are considering applying for a permit an opportunity to learn how to properly and safely carry a concealed handgun and to understand the laws regarding the use of lethal force for personal protection.

    The course will consist of classroom lecture/demonstration and live-fire exercises on the range.

    Classroom instruction includes:

    • Situation Awareness
    • Threat Evaluation
    • The Force Continuum
    • Courtroom Savvy
    • The Physio/Psychological Aspects of Lethal Encounters

    Live-fire exercises on the range include:

    • Threat evaluation
    • Risk identification and reduction
    • Lethal threat containment and management
    • Precision shooting
    • Discretionary shooting
    • Low-light shooting (with and without a flashlight)
    • Cover and movement
    • Performing under stress

    Tactical training is conducted in a realistic manner, stressing correct use of cover, movement, challenges, and other important individual tactics. In addition, students will practice close and extremely close encounters and weapon control.
    This two day course is usually offered on a weekend with a low light shooting session at the end of the first day.
