Hillside Private Property


The Defensive Handgun I class is an excellent introduction to practical shooting in a real world environment.  It has been created for students whose only previous experience has been training under limited conditions on static lines at public ranges.  Through an eight hour day, our friendly instructors will guide you as you:

*Learn range safety rules on a 180 degree range with multiple targets.
*Conduct drills out to 25 yards from standing, kneeling, and prone positions and from behind cover.
*Begin drawing from a holster and reloading from magazine pouches.
*Learn about common malfunctions and how to clear them.
*Test your abilities with a self-assessment checklist.

The Defensive Handgun series is designed to take students from static line shooting into applying their skills in a real world environment.  Through the supervision of our instructors, you will learn how to fight back with a firearm while under stress.


Ability to safely manipulate a handgun under stress.
Ability to regularly hit center mass on a torso target from 15 yards.
Ability to safely and healthfully navigate a live fire course.

What to Bring:

Gear: Ear protection/eye protection (wrap around glasses or glasses with some form of side protection preferred). Bring athletic shoes, boots, or cleats. It’s an outdoor range so check the weather and dress accordingly. We run rain or shine.
