Intermediate Handgun Defense Level 5
Firearm Training Course
This is an Intermediate level curriculum centered around Reality Behavior-Based Conditioning© (RBBC) as it relates to combative marksmanship. All 88 Tactical training courses are built on the core concept of 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.
88 Tactical’s Handgun Level 5 is an intermediate 4-hour course that teaches students to utilize their handgun in a dynamic self-defense situation with the use of cover and barricades. This includes movement to cover, using cover as a brace, maneuvering from cover to cover, and conducting malfunction clearances and reloads.
