Tactical Pistol I

Tactical Pistol I is the entry level of Tactical Firearms Academy’s pistol courses.  This course combines the fundamental skills necessary for combat marksmanship with the tactical knowledge required surviving with a pistol in a hostile environment. Emphasis is placed on the basic shooting skills and developing tactical applications for those skills.  The techniques presented are the same as those currently taught to law enforcement officers.  Topics will include:


• Weapon safety and handling
• 8 Fundamentals of Marksmanship
• Grip and Stances
• Pistol presentation and firing techniques from a holster
• Pistol marksmanship principles
• Reloading
• Clearing malfunctions


During this demanding 9 hour course, students will learn weapon safety and handling, grip and stance, pistol presentation and firing techniques from a holster, pistol marksmanship principles, dot drills, reloading and malfunctions and beginning movement.  Class size is kept small to permit individual instruction.  Students will be required to pass a shooting qualification so successfully complete the course.  A certificate of training is awarded to those students who complete and pass the course and exhibit competence and safe gun handling skills.
