Tactical Application Pistol: Level Two
IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION regarding TAP-2 prerequisite training: the required Basic Pistol training (TAP-1) can be fulfilled with any of our Level One Pistol classes, including TAP-1, Ladies Only Pistol 1, and ACHP (Alaska Concealed Handgun Permit). If you have questions about the class or requirements, please feel free to reach out to us. Thank you!
“TAP-Two” builds on the foundation laid down in TAP-One, refreshing students on safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship, before bridging the gap between shooting and gunfighting.
Students will participate in hands-on tactical exercises integrating tactics with skills as they learn to draw from concealment, shoot on the move, engage at extreme close-quarters (weapon retention), and fight from various orthodox and unorthodox physical positions. Shooters will practice the logic and mechanics of engaging multiple threats, and participate in simulated-stress firing drills.
***This is not a beginner-level class. Tactical Application Pistol: Level One (including ACHP and Ladies Only Pistol) is a prerequisite for all applicants.
Cost: TAP-2 $180 or Combined TAP-2 & 3 $325
