Basic Handgun Defense Level 2

Firearm Training Course


Basic Handgun Defense Level 2 builds on the fundamentals of defensive shooting presented in Basic Handgun Defense Level 1. In this 4 hour basic level course, you will continue to build a foundation of safe, defensive handgun skills to a level useful for real world self-defense. Students will focus heavily on sighted fire single and multiple shots from the ready position and from a position with the hand on the gun in the holster. This course includes one hour of lecture and dry fire practice.

All 88 Tactical training courses are built on the core concept of Reality Behavior-Based Conditioning© (RBBC). RBBC was developed from this maxim: “the study of behavior is as important as the study of tactics.” 88 Tactical courses condition an appropriate crisis response that maximizes performance while working with, instead of against, a person’s survival-oriented instincts and intuitions.
