Defensive Handgun 2, aka Defensive Handgun Skill Builder is a technical and athletic day of training designed to help you develop mastery in the foundational skills and knowledge of defensive pistol craft. Our primary focus is on mastering shooting fundamentals, to include stance, grip, posture, recoil control, aiming, trigger press, movement, plus extensive training on weapons handling and rapid fire.

Prepare yourself ahead of time with sleep, stretching, nutrition, hydration, and exercise.


Firearm Safety and Self Defense
Introduction to Defensive Handgun (DH1)


As with most all of our classes, this class is funded by donation. For tuition, a suitable donation amount is anything between $50 and $250 per person. For the 2021-2022 school year, I have updated the website to accept credit card payments directly and up front to decrease confusion, no-shows, and administrative workload.

Ammo for this class is separate from tuition, and if you need us to supply ammo, you will pay market rate for a nominal 200 rounds projected for this curriculum. If you have questions, you can contact Brian at, or call 408-892-5460.
