Concealed Carry for the Law-abiding Citizen
This four (4) hour class focuses on drawing your gun from concealment and firing to stop a deadly threat. An introduction to proper drawing techniques without concealment is covered then we concentrate on drawing from a variety of clothing conditions. Several different firing drills are covered in this course as well.
Too often, law abiding citizens have a permit to carry but rarely practice the draw from a variety of concealment conditions. We will cover a number of techniques and factors that will increase your chances of surviving a deadly force encounter.
Students should bring a firearm, 2 magazines, approximately 150 rounds of ammunition, eye, and ear protection, and your Rhode Island Pistol Permit Application. A holster is recommended but not required. Previous shooting experience is recommended.
