TACTICAL APPLICATION PISTOL: LEVEL ONE
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be adapting our class format to allow greater personal space between individuals. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
The handgun alone among weapons possesses such tactically decisive potential in a package so portable, accessible, and covert.
“TAP-One” is a beginner level pistol class that grounds handgun shooters in fundamental concepts of safe, competent gun-handling, marksmanship, and range etiquette. It also introduces basic mindset and tactics: training the mind to predict and avoid or address violent encounters competently and responsibly.
Tactical Application Pistol: Level One is a prerequisite to Tactical Application Pistol: Level Two.
