8:00 am – 4:00 pm – Intermediate Concealed Carry – Home Defense I, at Kentucky Personal Defense Training, 251 Breighton Circle, Shelbyville

INTERMEDIATE CONCEALED CARRY – HOME DEFENSE I

TIME: 8am to approximately 6pm. This is advanced training so we will use up as much daylight as possible!!

COST: $150 (Payment must be made at the time of registration.)

CLASS SIZE: I only take 12 students for this class and it always fills up quickly.

PREREQUISITES: Must hold a valid concealed cary permit or have taken our Basic Concealed CArry Skills Training Course.

LOCATION: Shelbyville, KY.

This class will pick up where we left off in the Basic Concealed Carry Skills Course and will focus on learning and implementing basic defensive shooting skills that you would use inside your home or another structure in the event of an active shooter event or terrorist attack. The class will cover the following:

CLASSROOM PORTION: Approximately 4.5 hours. BE PREPARED TO TAKE NOTES!!!!

Review of the legal aspects of using deadly physical force in a home defense scenario.
Proper target visualization for training and for creating your “doctrine.”
Preparing a “safe room” in your home, to use in the event of a home defense scenario and preparation of a “defensive plan.”
Proper interaction with a perpetrator inside your home and danger scenarios including “how to safely answer the door.”
Proper interaction with law enforcement after you have used deadly physical force against a perpetrator inside your home.
DEFENSIVE MARKSMANHIP – Review of defensive shooting stance, correct grip, using the retention ready or compressed ready position, one handed shooting techniques, trigger manipulation/understanding trigger reset and proper defensive sighting/acceptable defensive accuracy.
Proper emergency reloading technique, in the event you run out of ammo in a gunfight.
Overview of drills we will perform on the range.

RANGE TRAINING PORTION Approximately 4.5-5 hours.

We will cover a number of drills starting from aimed fire warm-up and progressing to full out moving and shooting. We will cover shooting from the standing, squatting, kneeling and supine (lying on your back) positions, as well as shooting from concealment and cover (around and over obstacles). We will run drills that will require you to move between obstacles, perform emergency reloads and engage targets and a couple of drills that will get your heart pumping to simulate the effects of stress during a life threatening encounter. IF YOU HAVE HEALTH ISSUES OR PHYSICAL LIMITATIIONS, PLEASE DO NOT BE AFRAID OF COMING TO CLASS. WE WILL WORK AROUND YOUR CAPABILITY.

GEAR LIST FOR THIS CLASS:
A handgun, preferably a semi-automatic handgun. One that will be or currently is your everyday carry. Make sure your gun is clean and has been properly serviced. (NOTE: I have no problem with you brining a REVOLVER if that is your gun of choice, but remember, we will be shooting a high volume of ammunition in a short period of time and because of nature of a revolver this will cause rapid fatigue of your strong hand as your hands and arms will be required to absorb all of the recoil. If you choose to bring a revolver, you will need to bring a minimum of two speed loaders or moon clips.)
A minimum of two magazines. Three or four magazines is ideal as it will limit down time between drills.
Concealed carry or strong side holster and/or mag holster. These are OPTIONAL. (NO SMALL OF THE BACK OR SHOULDER HOLSTERS)
400 rounds of factory ammunition for your handgun.
Eye protection. If you wear prescription glasses, safety glasses are not required.
Ear protection (Muffs or plugs will be fine.)
Season appropriate clothing that you don’t mind getting torn and dirty.
Boots or sturdy tennis shoes. (No open-toed shoes.)
Hat with a brim. (Optional – Helps keep sweat and sun out of your eyes and hot brass from falling into your shirt.)
Sunblock and bug spray for the range. (Optional)
Drinking water for the range.
Snacks for the classroom and range.
Lunch – Just like the basic class you will have 30 minutes for lunch. Bringing a lunch will save us time in class, but is not required. There are several options around the classroom for you to get lunch.
