Seasoned Citizen 350 Intermediate Pistol Class
This is the natural progression for those who have successfully completed the SC250. The SC350 increases the challenges based upon the SC250 skill sets. Instead of many different positional shooting options, increased movement, stepping off the line of attack, shooting while moving, engaging moving targets, introduction to force-onforce and more is offered. The night shoot is completed in the indoor and outdoor simulators. The physical requirements are a bit more than the SC250, but the student does what their body allows them to do.
Move! The 350 course focuses on movement. You will not be standing still on the line as everything will be done with different types of movement. Getting off the line of attack, shoot then move, move then shoot, continuous movement and moving targets highlight the week.
Concealed carry is optional for much of the class to make the training more realistic to your everyday life. New flashlight techniques are introduced as your night shoot is done in the simulators. You will learn to draw and shoot with your support hand. Dozier drills are shot from a seated position and the El Presidente drill is done tactically.
You will also be introduced to force on force training done with Simunitions. The added realism of dealing with live people who react and respond to you is the most beneficial training you can have. It’s as close to real as it gets.
*Important Note: 250 Defensive Pistol with Marksman status or better.
